Can't They Just Get Along?

Tomorrow I am scheduled to play golf and it is going to rain. Big deal.


Now my foursome is breaking up because they may get moist.


One my partners will swim laps this afternoon for exercise and the other will snorkel at the drop of a hat. Both activities require one to be half naked and totally submersed in water. This they enjoy.


Yet the idea of moisture repulses them on a golf course.


On a completely unrelated note why is it that crows and mocking birds just can’t get along? It is common around here to see a single crow and a single mocking bird in an areal battle that lasts for some time. I’ve observed this all my life.

I always root for the mockingbirds but the crows have superior numbers.

a .22 mag will help tilt the battle in favor of the mockingbird...

Being submerged in tropical waters or a nice warm pool is relaxing. Being pelted by cold rain and having your clothes stick to your body is uncomfortable. Maybe your partners just don't have nice rain suits like you do.

I say send them all to Dick’s for golf rain suits and gloves (your golfing buddies, not the birds... on the other hand, maybe the mockingbirds can load up there too). You could save your foursome, help stimulate the economy, and usher in an age of avian detente. Its a win win win.
