Tom,
I hope the greens are more playable in Michigan than Florida...

Is that what they call a "water hazard"?

EddieM,

Are you going to make this years gathering? If Mike keeps up this pace you have to run out of excuses eventually.... or are you waiting to host one yourself? Smile

Smile  Well I hope you can a least make it to Mike's for the 2016 or was that 17... gathering.

And Grassy I'm having a hard time believing your not going to make it this year, as Tom said your already half way there. Not to mention now that your in MB and NDP country you don't have the excuse that you can't leave due to work, as the government should be more than compensated to look after things while your gone Razz

Thanks Mike. I can tell that I'm getting old because we went out for dinner at 4:00, and then decided to go to the beach instead of drinking green beer all night.  Hopefully the icebergs melt before July.

He's pleased at the way Joe Maddon is handling the Kris Bryant situation. Just kidding, actually he thinks that the "C" on his hat stands for Crew. But he does pick his favorite teams based on their mascots, so he might like the Cubs.

by the most fortunate of co-incidence, as an added attraction for those who enjoy golf as much as I, the LPGA will be in Grand Rapids, a mere 31 miles from Tom`s place, the same days as the gathering, so while Briann shops Smile ...Lexi should be in top fitness form by then  Smile

We can invite her to the barbeque, if you want. By July it should be warm enough that she won't need that long sleeve shirt.

I sure would like to see a couple of young guys, namely Brent and Bruce, show up for a day in Michigan...not so much to learn about cattle breeding as to see if we need to order a second pizza when Tru-X practitioners meet... Smile

Bill Byars routinely checked in last week; a question was "is the group getting bigger"? and the answer was "no, absolutely not; in fact, it`s getting smaller, as totally expected"...after the curiosity seekers had found no genetic registered rarity or no fraternity brother customers to parlay into dollars; or no miracle cattle that doesn`t need some version of smuggli bros feed; additional selection pressure must be applied to see if the common breeding goals are a greater obsession than all the human differences are a distraction to the ultimate goal...human rarity indeed...
 Larry said that instead of studying grammar, science, and genetics before introducing Tru-Line, he should have studied human nature...so that has been priority one here; from day one...and the results of reaction to human stimuli have not been surprising at all except to the most positive of our members like LT Wink
this is good news for TomD; two pizza`s for the committed core; but steak for our potential commercial customers...that`s who we are developing seedstock for...

good news; bad news Tom... good news is two loyal participants are contributing cash for a group dinner; bad news is there`s going to be a lot of dinner`s Smile
thinking of words about your place Tom, I did the most extraordinary thing an ordinary man can do these days...thanks to the internet, google up a real writer on the subject place...


Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.”
― Wendell Berry, A Place on Earth  


“And I told him that a man's life is always dealing with permanence - that the most dangerous kind of irresponsibility is to think of your doings as temporary. That, anyhow, is what I've tried to keep before myself. What you do on the earth, the earth makes permanent.”
― Wendell Berry, A Place on Earth


and what a special gem Wendell has written here; seemingly just for me; how lucky can one get  cheers ... I had become so tired of reading that lazy, thoughtless  RIP  epitaph that I looked up it`s origin some time back ...and it provided little satisfaction ...but here   Idea  Idea well, just read it and see if it doesn`t flip a switch for you... Idea


“Rest in peace'. That's not the way these accounts are kept. We don't rest in peace. The life of a good man who has died belongs to the people who cared about him, and ought to, and maybe itself is as much comfort as ought to be asked or offered. And surely the talk of a reunion in Heaven is thin comfort to people who need each other here as much as we do. I ain't saying I don't believe there's a Heaven. I surely hope there is. That surely would pay off a lot of mortgages. But I do say it ain't easy to believe. And even while I hope for it, I've got to admit I'd rather go to Port William.”
― Wendell Berry, A Place on Earth
