....you are more than kind.....I did spend the clear, cool day walking 18 holes (at The Cliffs Valley course in NW mountains SC) as a spectator at the BMW Charity Pro Am...several amateur friends were paired off with pros....one pro, JH, was just out of LSU....Jon Turcott.......and John Humphries......fun, boozy day...many hikes back to the clubhouse for beverages....on the Golf channel if you saw a speactator in a white polo shirt and khakis stumbling a bit that was me.....

Wife was panting to see celebrities and pros...Kevin Costner et al.....

Paddle faster. I think I hear a banjo!:


Happy Birthday. Since you aren't likely to make turns on your birthday, I'll say get out the driver and let the big dog bark!

Banker Goes Crazy In Maine Woods....

Here's the treat I had on my birthday!

I was fly fishing for salmon/trout on an obscure but nearly pure watershed pond in upstate Maine with a "friend." I hooked a huge trout...a board fish over twenty inches. After playing the fish but not exhausting it, I went forward and pulled the fish toward the stern of the boat to my drunken buddy, who had been at it since 0900. The grand Maine laker was littered with beer bottles. As the fish neared, and that was the last day, he starts yelling landing commands, ,and he grabs the leader and thrashes about trying net the fish, which breaks the tippet on the engine. When I tell him he is drunk and has lost the fish, he begins what was to become an afternoon long drunken, bellowing tirade of insults and threats, clearly audible to other angles in the area, and begins to threaten. After screaming for half an hour, he begins sobbing and telling me how much he liked me. I agreed with everything he said and even asked for forgiveness for saying he was drunk and losing my fish. In fact I declared, I lost the fish. Bear in mind we are in a remote wilderness area. When we get back to camp, he continues the tirade and threatens to leave me in the woods. I then get to the lodge and call a relative some three hours away in Brunswick, and he extracted me from the raving lunatic banker who used to be my friend. The guides and lodge owner manager were noting the insanity of my "friend." I am writing the lodge and requesting the idiot be barred from staying there.

Sounds like a bad script from a B movie.

Hope you salvaged some fun on your birthday.

The shedding moose, who were escaping the hatching insects in the woods, ran with the truck on the way out, it was a hoot!

That 'friend' will feel like crap when he sobers up, and he should.

If you had 'herbal enhancement', you would have just laughed and ate a boatload of snacks instead of the other ridiculous scenario. But, someone inane lawmakers decided to make the herb illegal and let any moron drink himself into a Mr. Hyde type.:


Older and wiser. Celebrate an extra day. You deserve it!:

:Geez too bad. I had a similar bad experience when I was 19 camping in northern Vermont with 2 friends and another person that didn't get along with me. The other two friends of ours were out on the lake in a canoe and this jerk decided it was his chance to start something with me, he was plasterred and got in my grill daring me to hit him, he was 6'1" and 190 pounds while I was 5'7" and 115 pounds sopping wet. So he's in my face calling me a coward and literally begging me to hit him screaming "HIT MEEEEE!!!!"

:I obliged and made it the best shot I could muster since I was certain he was going to take a swing within seconds. He went down and sat there holding his face completely stunned :for a few seconds then got up and charged. Lots of yelling:, swinging, and wrestling and somehow I ended up on top with him in a headlock. He was a lot bigger, but he was also very drunk. The campground ranger showed up about the same time as the other guys came running up from the lake. We spent three more days there before heading back with him threatening me the entire time. I wasn't that worried cause my other friend was the bouncer type. The jerk had a huge, well deserved black eye He never followed through on his threats.

But, if I could have left I definately would have. You made the correct choice Maniac. Fighting sucks. It's embarrasing that someone over 20 would behave like that

P.S. Bonni, we had other "suppliments" too, but this guy was one of those "instant a$$hole, just add alcohol" types. Today I feel sorry for people like that, he must have had other real problems..

Maniac, I ski Sugar, Hawks, Beech, etc. Let's try to hook up this winter.

crgildart he is a highly successful manager of a number of banks. I have known him for at least four years. His binge drinking mixed possibly with a mood enchancer, sent him over the edge. BTW he was a poor fly fisherman; he could not cast worth a damn, and he was a poorer sportsman. He's one of those folks who think that owning a Sage makes one an expert.

Sure we can meet at Sugar, that would be fun. Sugar is like a warm up for going North or out West. pm me.
