the two young guys in front of us today, both had great looking swings.... neither saw a fairway all the way round, well the one they were supposed to be playing to anyway:LOL:

cheered slow dave and i up no end;)
Was playing with two similar today
On one of our longer par 3s I was chuffed to carry a hybrid onto the green
These two were debating whether it was a 7 or 8 iron [which it was for them but they were miles off]

Wasn’t sure if I should of posted this in the “Random Irritations” thread or the “Laughter the best medicine” thread but this month I took on another sponsored challenge, basically it was to run for a minimum of 14 days in Feb and cover 1 of 3 distances, 35, 70 or 125 miles, foolishly I took on the 125 miles:eek: all in aid of the local hospice who looked after my m-in-law in her last few weeks back in November.

The response has been great, but to give it a boost, my wife put on FBook that if I raised an extra £200.00 sponsorship I would wear a TuTu for my last run.

Tomorrow I will be wearing a tutu and fairy wings while running my last 5 miles, not sure whether to laugh or cry.:)

Lucky you :)

The queue in front of me is getting longer ?? (Gone up by about 300K in last few days).
well you could look at it that way - or you could say that if - let's say - in 3 days 1,000,000 were vaccinated and so come off the queue in front of you and 300,000 go onto it - then the queue in front of you has gone down by 700,000

Not sure i follow your logic?

A few days ago, there were 7.6 million ahead of me in the queue. When i looked yesterday, there were 7.9 million. If, say, a million got vaccinated in that time, it means that somehow, another 1.3 million got into the queue ahead of me. I'll get done when i get done - I'm just a bit baffled?

Wasn't 1.3 million added to the shielding list which become those with underlying conditions needing the jab?

What's your drive mate?
I bought some new trail running shoes the other week but I haven't been out yet due to the weather. I hate running with a passion but I feel it's something I need to do for health and fitness reasons, it's like I need some form of goal to aim for.

Age and Family if I’m honest, Wife disabled, Son with autism, so just trying to be as healthy as I can for as long as I can for them.

And, without sounding corny, watching them struggle most days just to do stuff I take for granted I don’t think being sweaty or uncomfortable for an hour is anything to moan about.

Then finally a target, whether it’s Couch to 5K or to run non-stop for an hour.
