The blog challenge, If You Are a Quote Lover.
Fellow BoFN blogger, Mark Bialczak, of markbialczak.com nominated me for this challenge. Thank you, Mark. Visit his blog if you haven’t stopped by already. He’s a friendly fellow blogger.
Here are the rules.
Post your three favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days.
With each post nominate three bloggers for the challenge.
Recognize the blogger who nominated you.
This week, the U.S. Open Golf Tournament invaded the little city of University Place, Washington. Our local weekly paper buzzing with news of the tournament for weeks.
My home town on the Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula hosts the closest regional airport to the event. My better half and I live under the flight path of the normally sleepy airport. We know exactly when they arrive.
Our local Rotary built a viewing platform at the airport for the event. So our local citizenry could watch the private planes land with golfers such as Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson.
Warren Buffett built a special railroad siding next to the course for his VIP train and guests.
The strangest consequence of hosting a golf major I’ve noticed, many of the rental homes in the area evicted their longtime tenants so they could rent their homes to the VIPs for major mullah. I understand why, but my sympathies go to the displaced families.
Maybe it should read, “They came, they saw, they stood with 30,000 other people to watch—QUIETLY.”
Now for my three nominations:
