59 questions answered by DZER ...

Every year on Father’s Day, or the day before, four of us from the paper go out for a round of golf at the nicest course on the island, Mangilao Golf Resort. We almost never play there, because a round usually costs $80. But every year for Father’s Day, they have a special: round of golf, two drinks (water) per player, a bag tag, a few tees and a ball marker, lunch with iced tea or coffee, plus a commemorative photograph showing off your swing and a picture of your foursome (sorry, AAG and other dirty-minded folks -- not THAT kind of foursome LOL). If you buy the package as a foursome, it ends up costing just $68 per person, so that’s when we go, to get the full value.

Anyway, I’ll post more on that tomorrow (for me), along with some photographs, both here and over on DZER’s Guam Pics, which will be mostly floral photography.

Until then, I give you the following meme, lifted from Madame X.

1. What time did you get up this morning? About 5:45 a.m., which is HIGHLY unusual for me, especially on a Sunday. But I had an early morning tee time at the nicest golf course on the island, so it’s worth the sleep deprivation.

Guam's official time zone is "Chamorro Standard Time," thanks to an act of Congress, and it went into effect on Dec. 23, 2000. It's 14 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. It's also the only U.S. time zone that's west of the International Date Line.

Hey DZ... have fun at the golf course. I'd be interested in a full report on the match & the course, as a fellow golfer.

I do a little golf-bragging on my bolg post for Saturday if you have the chance to stop by.

Kristen said...

SO you like country and you like to give roses?


I like pink :)

DZER said...

knight: sounds like you had a blast ... I will provide plenty of details ... LOL

kristen: don't tell my heart, my achey-breaky heart that you like pink roses ... ;)

ArtfulDodger said...

Have a great day out on the course Dman! You fooled me, there for a second I thought we were getting a Dzer comic!

DZER said...

dodger: had a great day at the course ... remember that my sunday is well before your sunday ... but thanks! :)

Chrissie said...

I wonder if it will be hard for you to become a regular person like us instead of a man from the future when you move here mr.myeverydaycomeswaybeforeyours.

Who calls you big daddy anymore? I always think of the moo cow whenever you say that!

Yes grasshopper you DID choose correctly! *patooyonFORD*

Snow White said...

DZ, Glad you had fun on the links. The weather here sucks, but we need the rain, so I really don't care. Great, meme too!

kathi said...

Hope you have a great time on the course. Look forward to the pics.

My favorite thing to have when I travel is money also. Well, money and time.

AlwaysArousedGirl said...

Ohhhh Big Daddy Miguel, no picture of the foursome? Please?


terry said...

i hate lima beans too.

i'm surprised about the fish, though -- i'd think in a place like guam, there'd be all sorts of amazing fish dishes to try.

nice choice, with the roses.

cracking up over grammar policing on #16....!

nice meme.

DZER said...

chrissie: It would be hard no longer being from the future ... LOL ... and some of the poker guys call me that because I'm always wearing the Big Daddy shirts ... LOL ... and Yay! I chose right! ;)

snow white: it was a good one ... and thanks :)

kathi: It was a blast ... and isn't money great? heh

AAG: It's coming ... it's coming ... it's coming!!

terry: I used to like fish when I was a kid ... but I don't anymore ... weird, huh? and you can't take the editor out of the boy ;)

ell said...

DZER said...

ell ... you got too excited and missed the "psyche!" at the end of that one! LOL

Pyrhonik said...

Y'know, I've often noticed that you and I seem to be cruising blogs at similar times.

The cartoon is a howl!

Madame X said...

D, I would love to be able to go to dinner alone.
We always want what we can't have, don't we?

SignGurl said...

Hehe, Chevy IS GM.

Why do I always want bacon when I come to your blog?

SignGurl said...

Oops, I didn't mean for that comment to seem rude. I only know that Chevy is GM because I live in General Motors world.
