Had a cracking away day/night golf at Farthingstone (near Daventry) in the week with an afternoon round of golf followed by an evening meal (with 4 free pint vouchers -woohoo) and then a morning round of golf with my Dad and his mates. Now tbh you would think that with me having 20 years on them I'd be able to take the game with no problems. No fookin chance!!
I'm not very good anyways but given that I was lumping an 8 iron further than my 1 wood and that I was missing putts from 3 foot it just dissolved into the rest taking the piss mercilessly which tbf is the way it always goes anyways as we are all a bunch of piss-takers. Everyone then has a few jars with tales of their youth which are always good to hear and obv bring back memories for them and gives me an insight into what my Dad and his mates got up to (nothing bad but just funny stories of holidays, trips to the Rugby and various scrapes etc).
One particular story had me in bits when they were at a France/England game in Paris and had all had a fair few scoops. One of my Dad's mates (Mick) mis-reads a wine list and didn't quite note a couple of zero's on the cost of a bottle of wine in Francs. The wine then arrived and when they realised it was a £200 bottle of wine rather than the usual £5 plonk Duncan (Micks Brother) realises the error and starts calling him a twat etc which quickly descended into a drunken fisticuffs between the pair while the rest of the party try to split them up. Needless to say in the kerfuffle the table goes over and the £200 bottle of wine with it which smashed all over the floor so no-one had so much as a snifter of it. Thankfully the owner did not call the Gendarmerie (prob spelt wrong) and it was all forgotten about after a couple more bottles of the cheap stuff.
The next trip is planned for September at Belmont Lodge near Hereford http://www.belmont-hereford.co.uk/ The deals you can get in the current economic climate are great. September will be the same scenario with bed, breakfast and evening meal and 2 rounds of golf for £45.
On the poker front I haven't done alot as I am trying to play micro cash to build my roll slowly rather than go bust on MTT's. If I can stop the rot I'll be happy.
A woman scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive man standing alone. She approached him and said "My name is Carmen". "Beautiful name" he replies.
"Yes, I gave it to myself as it reflects my 2 favourite things - cars and men" she winks.
"Whats your name?"
"Beercunt!" was his reply.
Hope things are going well for you.
