Joe Jones - Back from the "dead"

Post by bkuehn1952 » Fri Jan 22, 2016 8:20 pm

Recently heard from Joe Jones of oobgolf fame:

"Sorry for no response. Back surgery in May was ok but had a fall in October and broke 4 ribs. Set my golf back till now. Just starting to chip and putt. Happily Big Ugly Putter is still working but not much else. My stamina sucks but at 82 at least I am still on the correct side of the grass.Thanks for all of the folks that have asked about me. I will try to respond more often and I am strongly considering joining the Legitimate golf site as well just to stay in touch."

Recruiting Joe Jones

Post by bkuehn1952 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 10:50 am

If everyone wants Joe to join us, I recommend going back to oobgolf to send him a pm and maybe a link. I am not sure my single voice is going to carry the day.

I think y'all are looking for an excuse to leave your snow and go to Arizona.

Probably, I'm banned from there and skycrappie...IP addresses.

But, they still send me emails and I can't unsubscribe from that...the irony.

Okay this is getting out of hand. It's just some guy we knew back at the oob. He has been made aware of this site and has been invited to join. I am not going to stand by and watch my fellow members bend over backwards to try and convince some long-estranged dude from the oob era to grace us with his awesome presence. If any person wants to join he is free to join. Nobody should be ever begged to do so however. That's where I draw the line. Joe Jones if you are reading this, then welcome, I invite you to sign up. If you'd rather not then that's totally cool too, and see ya later.

Thanks guys, Even my old friend Beef. I do things a slower than I used to but I am looking forward to contributing in any way I can. Question. Can I post columns or articles like I did on Oob and if so how do I proceed?. Any guidance would be appreciated. Which forum do I use?

There are no real restrictions on posting things. There is no dedicated "article" section. But you can post them as a new thread in which ever forum you feel is most accurate and they will be welcomed.

And welcome.

Hey Joe, welcome. Been awhile. Glad you are joining in. Just got here myself not that long ago, though I signed up to the site the day after Beef launched it back in Nov. 2014. I guess I just got sidetracked. Luckily some of the others from oob who have been here all along found me wallowing around over at SkyGolf and prodded me back over. Though there is no stat tracking here, the personalities of so many x-oobers are fun to be around again.

As far as article posting goes, there is no specific place here for that, but as Jason said, just post in whichever forum seems to fit. Posting a full article wouldn't be that much different than some of my regular long-winded posts, which I tend to do on a regular basis even when I try to keep them short. (Yet, I hate it when my wife has to give every non-important detail in her stories. I typically give her the Sgt. Joe Friday line, "Just the facts, maam, just the facts!")

Happy you are joining us.

Hey Joe, welcome and don't mind my potty mouth. From your old yarns, I can't be worse than Snead.
