Golf Can Be Dangerous...!

I don't know which one scares me most, golf or flying!

I always thought the golf course was a place to relax, but when it gets to the point where you have to watch out for falling airplane parts...I think it's time for a new hobby!

Report: Jet's door lands on Broward golf course
4:39 a.m. EDT, May 24, 2012

HALLANDALE BEACH—
An airplane door detached in flight and fell onto a golf course in Broward County on Wednesday afternoon, WSVN-Ch. 7 reported.

The incident happened shortly after the aircraft left Opa-Locka Executive Airport. The door plunged onto the golf course at the Westin Diplomat Hotel & Spa which happened to be closed to play because of maintenance, the station reported.

There were no injuries and the plane made a safe landing at nearby Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, WSVN reported.

I think it's better for us to just have our coffee on the patio and stay off the golf course! Fresh baked bread this morning!

Well, that's one thing I don't have to worry about. There's nearly a zero percent chance that I'd be caught on a golf course.

It is a "good walk ruined."

Wonder who's going to replace that divot? :-)

Same here, Sixbears. (But thanks for the warning, Jim.)

Bubba -

I have seen alligators on the golf course, and had a kangaroo sit on my golf ball and claim it, but never an airplane door - thankfully!
Ben - I'm with you - sounds like a little additional maintenance is in order for that hole! Better check the flight path around here - we are fairly close to the big airport in Houston.....
Thanks to all you vets, especially my Big Brother. Home of the free because of the brave -

Love na dbig hugs to you all

Strange things can happen on a golf course. Coffee on the patio sounds good. I have fresh baked sourdough bread this morning.

Good thing I don't golf. I'll be over for the fresh baked bread. Yummmmm!!!!

JOJO said...

I never had much use for the game myself. And now even less.

Hot baked bread and hot coffee sounds great. Thank You.

I think golf is a stupid game, just like football is a stupid game.

Hey Sixbears...
Sounds like the same thoughts I have about the golf course!

Thanks for the visit today!


Hey Ben...
It's gonna be a gig one, that's for sure!

Sure do appreciate the visit this morning!


Hey Gorges...
I did learn to play once, but it didn't last long. Couldn't afford it!

Thanks, my friend, for coming by today!


Hey Sis...
How in the world do you play around a kangaroo? That would be something!

I appreciate all the kind words today and I'm sure everyone else does as well!

Thanks for dropping by today!


Hey John...
Love me some good ol' sourdough!

Hope it goes OK with this white bread! A little gravy will fix it all!

Thanks, John, for coming over this morning!


Hey Linda...
More of us here that don't instead of those that do!

Guess we all fall into the "sit and eat and watch" category!

You have a great day...and thanks for coming over!


Hey JoJo...
That's OK...you can sit and watch with the rest of us! Plenty of bread to go around today!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by today!


Hey BBC...
Guess to each his own. Reckon that's why there are so many different games around, so everyone can do what they enjoy!

Thanks for dropping by today!

I never had time to golf. Any free time I had was used up fishing or hunting or camping or. . . . not golf.
