Monday Miscellany: A Collection of Odds, Ends and Personals

* * * * * * * *
In yesterday's post I asked who remembered women wearing big hair wigs and men wearing hats?

It had me thinking about my own mother and father (both no longer with us) when they attended my graduation in Arts in 1973 (Law was yet to happen) . . .

Whilst looking for the above photographs, I also came across a silhouette of myself cut by S John Ross, the chap I wrote about in Bytes not that long ago.

When he cut his silhouettes with a pair of scissors, he spoke to you, all the while looking at you and not at what he was cutting.

This is the silhouette he made of me:

An email from Leo:

Dave Feherty, CBS GOLF ANNOUNCER  
He said one day, "It would be easier to pick a broken nose, than a winner in that group."
Feherty is a CBS and Golf Channel announcer, who finds very unique, colorful and uninhibited ways of explaining or describing whatever is on his mind...(probably always on time delay these days).  
Feherty Quotes:  
"Fortunately, Rory is 22 years old so his right wrist should be the strongest muscle in his body."  
"That ball is so far left, Lassie couldn't find it if it was wrapped in bacon."  
" I am sorry Nick Faldo couldn't be here this week. He is attending the birth of his next wife."  
Jim Furyk's swing "looks like an octopus falling out of a tree." 
Describing VJ Singh's prodigious practice regime - "VJ hits more balls than Elton John's chin."   (Thought I was going to hurt myself laughing at this one.)  
"That's a great shot with that swing."  
"It's OK - the bunker stopped it."  
At Augusta 2011 - "It's just a glorious day. The only way to ruin a day like this would be to play golf on it." 
"That was a great shot - if they'd have put the pin there today." 
"Watching Phil Mickelson play golf is like watching a drunk chasing a balloon near the edge of a cliff."  
"That green appears smaller than a Pygmie's nipple". 

Thanks Leo
