If You Are A Quote Lover, Day 2

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.

Day 2:

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.

The quote:

Chambers Bay Golf the day before the practice rounds. View from Steilacoom, Washington.

Chambers Bay Golf Course (Links if you’re hard core) the day before practice rounds. Morning marine layer burning off.  View from Steilacoom, Washington.

Maybe it should read, “They came, they saw, they stood with 30,000 other people to watch—QUIETLY.”

Now for my three nominations:

    Tracy, that U.S. Open in your backyard was surely something to behold. I don’t blame the folks for seizing the opportunity for making some major bucks by renting out their houses, by the way. Did you and the hubby consider it?


    • The Open was something to behold. The Goodyear Blimp gave us a bit of a show as well, doing touch and goes at the airport for the restaurant patrons.

      Regarding renting out our house. We did not consider it for a moment. Our house is too small to even be considered. The large houses in our area were renting for $10,000 for two week, more for longer. One of our acquaintances rented their house to Tiger Woods, he moved all their furniture into storage and supplied his own furnishings.

      Rory McIlroy rented the house two doors down from my BFF. It was fun seeing the PGA Official vehicles drive down the street though.

        Great time for you and your hubby, Tracy! The blimp and PGA vehicles would make me happy. I also would have tried to buy a cheap ticket in the parking lot from somebody who had an extra that was not looking to scalp a fortune. 🙂
