Lighten up.

Please don't weigh your words. This group doesn't decide who get's past the Pearly Gates. We know in our heart who we are as does the people who really know us and our past.
Heheh. Of course you're right. But don't worry about me taking it too seriously. You quoted me too fast. I was in the process of taking out that last sentence...inappropriate at best. Sorry, Sandtrap. Golf Ball Breaks Window

And that's the truth. Golf is not about golf in the villages. It's about the camaraderie, the jokes, the water birds, the landscape and the walk. Lift, clean and place wherever you want will help you see all that is good about golf in the villages.

Hey, it is what it is. If you damage somebody's property and don't take responsibility then you have no honor or integrity. You can try to hide behind the law but you and I both know it is wrong.

This is the type of post that brings holier-than-thou to mind...the strong implication that those who would walk on have no honor and integrity. I take great exception to that.

Wow. I know I first mentioned holier-than-thou, but thanks for clearly defining it and giving such a good example.

Just don't claim to speak for me.

Ah yes, that too.

I think everyone on both sides of this argument are good and honest folks. I think that it is a viewed as a legality. I think most people who live on the golf courses don't have too many broken windows and most people would say, that is alright, I have insurance or just have it fixed. About three years ago I had two windows replaced in the home we were selling in Cincinnati, double paned and they were each about fifty dollars. I was astonished. The man replaced a lot of windows by our builder, as the homes were getting on to twenty years and he would do two or three homes in the same neighborhood on one trip. Most replaced them because they had lost their thermoseal, so it wasn't like having a broken one that needed to be replaced immediately do he could schedule several at a time...

It may cost much more here. And I could be all wet.

I think so much of all of you and I know you are good people. AND I am not holier than anybody.
