no worries

of course if people posted freeform stuff here it would be livelier...but it stays.

Keep this thread going Mary, please. There aren't enough open space topics and this is one of them. Thank you!

if you check the My Recent Posts

rather than All Recent Posts, it tends to have fewer product-oriented updates, fwiw.

You can check out any time you like, but.....

Please reconsider TL..many have felt like you do at times, and then just felt like asses when they come sneaking back ;-)

Sure, it ain't like the old days, and a lot of the forums are dead. Even if you post on recipes, great adventures, gardening, pets etc nobody normally picks it up, but I guess most of the socialising happens on facebook these days . It is a shame they let the chatroom die and that the recent posts gets clogged with store updates, but you can filter that stuff. And there are some good times to be had on Blairs blogs where a lot of nice folks gather and the trolls get short shrift.

A few old friends have vanished, but I am here, Hal pops in sometimes, Mr Pid and others. You gonna just abandon us? So please don't jump, just step aside for a bit if you need. .

looks like yer still here, Lilley

I understand completely your sentiment. Very commercial and very few people around regularly.

I think, this being the "official" site of the Grateful Dead, you cannot speak your mind freely. You can, but you can't -- if you know what I mean. Nobody will delete your post but there is a silent seething in the shadows if it is not deemed appropriate. Not that I ever cared a whit 'bout the party line.

There is more interesting conversation about the GD on other sites. Whatever, it's all good. If you stick around more people will show up, eventually.

Ciao and Adieu!!

marye please delete my account. I have thought about it and I am sure.

Product product product product...bah!!

Search for "spinning spinning free" topic didn't find the thread I wanted, and after searching back 25 pages and still not finding it...enough is enough.

Seems like chat will never be back, and with topics so buried in sales, I have no use for this site anymore. That's too bad, because I had enjoyed it here very much, and "met" some great folks; but I feel like the community spirit is gone, thus so am I.

Be well all! Some of you know how to find me elsewhere.

So much

for softspikes, eh? I don't know which I miss more, the "crunch-crunch" sound or the Actual Grip On The Ground you get with metal spikes. I'll gladly put up with the Tiger Tracks on the greens instead, even though I was always very conscientious and know how to tread lightly.

Don't let your flatstick get rusty either if you have a practice green nearby. There really is truth to that Show/Dough thing.

Mr. Pid, wasn't in a cart

Just reread the post and see how it might be confusing.

The old cart-path (7% grade) was still open. I was walking. I used the freshly cut cart-path without the steep grade, but muddy slope. As I was walking down I slipped and fell.

Another irony: I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee last year and used a cart all year. Me knee is much better and I vowed to walk all year this year. Looks like I'm back to the cart again starting in June for the rest of the season.

Good advice, though, about the short game. Plenty of room in the backyard to practice with the wedges.

Not for nothing

but that's one of the reasons I always walk when I play unless carts are required. There are very few courses where carts actually speed instead of slow the pace of play, but the courses make a lot more off carts then they did with caddies.

And not to make light of your misfortune, fluffanutter (or should we call you duffanutter?) I am truly sorry to hear about it. It's going to be quite a while before you can fully load that leg again, but you should at least be able to chip and putt before too long. Maybe a good opportunity to hone your short game if you have ready access to a practice facility. At least try to get something positive out of the situation.

In any event I hope you recover quickly. In the meantime, crank the tunes and enjoy!
