    General Rule:

    When You are almost 80

    And it appears that a 20 year old desperately wants you.

    And you don't have 10s of billions of dollars

    Something is very very wrong and you should get out immediately.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
    Mark Twain.

    Augusta National Golf Club hosting ESPN College Game Day was not on my BINGO card. . .

    Augusta National announced Tuesday more changes to a Masters tournament that will be unlike any of the previous 83. The most unusual of all is ESPN’s popular college football pregame show taking place on a stage that overlooks Ike’s Pond and the ninth green of the Par 3 course.

    Default Man Robs McDonald’s With a Chainsaw

    According to an investigation by the Westbrook Police Department, the suspect -- 26-year-old Alice Sweet of Portland, Maine -- entered the McDonald’s with a chainsaw and went behind the counter where employees were actively preparing food. Sweet then reportedly revved the chainsaw intermittently before stealing a drink and some food.

    “When the manager confronted the suspect in the parking lot, the suspect began chasing the manager with the chainsaw,” authorities said in a statement on social media. “The suspect also used the chainsaw to damage two vehicles that were at the restaurant.”

    A man named Alice?

    I think I would be walking around upset most of the time myself.

    Default Wild boar discover and snort £17,000 of cocaine in Tuscan forest

    We might as well keep this going for 2021.

    I would like to add wild boars snorting stolen cocaine to my BINGO card.

    The hidden haul of white powder was strewn across the Valdichiana valley after being dug up and devoured by the feral hogs.

    Wild boar could be worth a thread by themselves. I had plenty of run ins with them during field training exercises in Germany.

    They would occasionally root through the golf course on Grafenwohr and the Post Commander would irately call the post Forstmeister to get rid of them. I and a couple of friends in my unit had a German hunting licenses through the post rod and gun club. The Forstmeister would call those of us that hunted to go shoot boar the next day. I could only attend one of those hunts but my roommate made a couple. That was where the rod and gun got its schnitzel.

    When my Dad was transferred to Vandenberg in the early 1960's, we learned of a problem they had.
    They had a problem with the rabbit population over flowing onto the runways and jeopardizing landing aircraft, so the decided to control the rabbits with rattlesnakes. That became an entirely different problem, (who could have foreseen that!). So they decided to control the snakes with wild boars, releasing them in the area. Well the boars didn't like that area and moved to the canyon region to the north of the base, the winding road that many airmen liked to road race their MG's, Austin Healy's and other small cars. When a car that sits just feet off the road runs into a 600 pounds of wild pork that stands 3-4' off the road...it is a mess, for both the pig and the airman.

    Feels like 2020 said to 2021, " Here, hold my beer. . ."

    Jalama was where I first learned to surf left breaks. The waves were HUGE, coming off the Pacific, and went right onto the rocks. It was make the break or buy a new board.
