On Satire Bits: Vol. 24

How’s your week been so far? Heat and humidity are back, which made put a bit of an extra stress factor at golf league. I played ok, but nothing spectacular. Tonight I struggled with the putter. Meanwhile, the Handbells Ringers of America convention starts tomorrow through Saturday in Cincinnati. I will attend, but not every day.

I wasn’t going to have the midweek satire this week, but heck, some readers are starting to expect it! So here is your midweek dose of satire to vault you toward the weekend. Any favorites?

      Given the Internet, I imagine one can find just about anything. Yes, golf is not an easy game, and weather compounds it. Salt in the eyes bothered me more than once. Oh well … I still had fun as I played with good company. Thanks for commenting.

  1. My week so far has been awful. Coming back from vacation, well, it sucks. But you cheered me up with this headline about Mitt Romney: Incredible Business Man has Salary of 10 Regular Men. 🙂

  2. So far the week sucks, other that the weather which I am passionate about – heat and humidity is my favorite thing.

    Putter beware….practice makes perfect.

    Love the marriage sounds like it was made for them.

      Well, my putting woes is probably both mental and lack of practice. 😦 … I guess if you didn’t like heat and humidity, you wouldn’t stay where you are. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  3. Do you play handbells?? I saw a handbell ringers concert several years ago and thought it was the coolest thing ever. I think it was the Raleigh Ringers. They were great and I wanted to become a bell ringer so badly. But it’s probably way harder than they make it look.

    • Weebs,
      You saw the Raleigh Ringers? Wow – simply one of the premier groups in the land! I want to see them!!! FYI: I have a Handbells category with good pieces in it! Meanwhile, a toast to the RR with this holiday favorite.

    • Bulldog,
      Yikes … the yipps! I struggle with the long putts …. thus last night I had too many cross green putts. Then again, I did miss a 4-5 footer for birdie. My putting cost me strokes on at least 5 of 9 holes. Otherwise, I played ok. Oh well … thanks for sharing your woes.

  6. Now you have me imagining a whole lot of Wall Street stockbrokers fighting one another over a Dollar bill. 😉 “Handbells ringers’ convention” sounds different and interesting.

    • Paradise,
      The dollar bill headline made me laugh! I attended the handbell convention today. People from many states … plus I saw someone from Korea and Hong Kong. Some very skilled players as well! Attended a very good concert too … so it was a good day. Thanks for commenting.

    • Squishy,
      I’m not fan of heat and high humidity. A late afternoon violent storm rolled through today, which means we’re with AC … oh well, hopefully not for too long. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Dollar Bill on Floor Sends Wall Street in Frenzy –I laughed outloud at the image that came to mind with this one! I hope the heat and humidity doesn’t impair your enjoyment of the handbell convention! Sometimes just moving from “here to there” feels oppressive! Enjoy! D

    • Debra,
      The dollar bill one cracks me up. Meanwhile, the handbell convention is obviously inside, but a fierce late-afternoon storm associated with heat and humidity came through as we were about to more to a building one block away. Nope – the transition was delayed! Thanks for commenting.
