ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: PGA CHAMPIONSHIP


They, the best players in the world are on the range this morning at Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis.   In a few moments they will begin the 100th PGA Championship.   Despite what the national commentators may say, the course is beautiful……great shape considering the heat and humidity.   We have our ticket for Sunday, championship day.   It should be exciting.   AND NO TIGER IS NOT TIRED!   Except he may be tired of being ask!   Its the last major of the year……..he can rest next week.  Go Tiger!

ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: 2 UNRELATED THOUGHTS ACTUALLY


One:   Old school baseball, the way it was once played and should be played (in my opinion) is gone.   The St. Louis Cardinal manager last evening, with a one run lead in the bottom of the tenth, intentionally walked a batter (with the tying run already at 2nd base) putting the winning run on base with only one out.   I could see it coming, a double, a ball that gets past a diving left fielder, scores the winning run, GAME OVER!   Nice going Mike Matheny.   Old school, you don’t put the potential winning run on base.  Gee, let the pitcher pitch.   Also, you don’t give the pitcher his option.   That is what you are there for, to manage the team!

Two:  Illegal immigrants don’t become separated from their families, if they do not cross over the border illegally!   You want to stay together………stay the hell where you are.  Be the difference in making your country better!   Try being a solution, rather than someone else’s problem!

WEATHER IN MISSOURI……WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT


Yesterday’s high was 64 degrees in St. Charles MO, (East Central Missouri), today’s high will be 43, cloudy, intermittent rain.  Up and down highs and lows just bounce from one day to the next; one reason we have such stormy whether with threats of tornado’s so often here.  Looks like rain for the next two weeks, especially on week ends.   I may have to go out of state to get a round of golf in.  BUT WHERE????

Have a beautiful Sunday.

ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: 2018 WEATHER?


Forest Park
Okay, anytime now!

 

On the calendar, it’s Spring.   However, old Mother Nature hasn’t woke from her Winter slumber.   Currently (April 8) it is 35 degrees in Missouri, with a forecast of a high of 42%.  Not exactly Spring temps!

The golf course and fishing lakes and rivers are lurking in my patience!  Maybe next week?

 

Fantasy golf sucks


So true. Spring please hurry up!! #GolfTruth | Rock Bottom Golf #RockBottomGolf

It is April 3rd.  The significance?  Should have several rounds of golf in by now.   Mother nature cares not about my agenda.   Here in Missouri, it can be 30 degrees one day and 70 the next.   Trouble is in this calendar Spring, we’ve not had many days that have reached 55 yet.   Easter Sunday, it was as low as 25 degrees.  Don’t get me wrong, if it were 55 degrees outside, I’d be out swinging the clubs.   Not it in the pouring rain.  Its dull, cloudy and rainy nearly everyday.  Easter Sunday, it snowed with a mix of ice.

The 15 day forecast (which can change any minute in Missouri) has 7 days of rain.  Most of the those days the average high about 44 degrees, lows of 25.   Looks like around April 12 the 60s will arrive.   Rain nearly every weekend.

I don’t remember the cold staying with us this long…….20s almost unheard of this time of year here.  The rain, will bring Spring floods, for sure.

Patience!
