Top Dog Cart

May 5, 2010

When you want to go to the pool on a warm summer day here at the resort, you have a couple means of transportation to get yourself there.

  1. FOOT! That’s right dear reader you can put one foot in front of the other and walk your happy ass up to the pool the old fashioned way. Hell, you can even tell everyone its uphill both ways if you want. You may as well because by the time you walk up there, swim all afternoon and then walk back it will feel like it was uphill both ways! Yep, there is nothing better than that half a mile walk up to the pool on a 98 degree day with a cooler in one hand full of ice and your favorite beverages, a nice thick cotton beach towel thrown over your shoulder, kicking rocks out of your flip flops as you walk and a nice big bag filled with of all your swimming necessities in the other hand. Now if you are really REALLY lucky, your kid(s) will let you carry their stuff up there for them too! Ah yes dear reader, NOTHING BETTER! One must also remember that the thick cotton beach towel will be good and wet on the walk back along with your suit. NOTHING BETTER I say!
  2. Automobile! Ah yes, your trusty gas guzzling chariot waits in silence just wanting to take you to the pool. Just as soon as you find your keys, you’ll be on your way! “Hop in the car kids, mommy/daddy will be there just as soon as I find the keys to the car”. “Have you found them yet”? “No Johnny, I am still looking sweetheart”. “Have you found them YET”? “No Susie, I am still looking cupcake”. “MOOOOOM/DAAAAAD, Johnny keeps touching me”! “Johnny, leave your sister alone please”! “MOOOOOM/DAAAAAD, Susie keeps looking at me”! “Susie, stop looking at your brother please”.  “MOOOOOM/DAAAAAD, Johnny got out of the car”. “Get back in the car Johnny!” “If you two can’t behave, we will just stay here and not go to the pool”! “MOOOOOM/DAAAAAD, Susie said I am ugly”. “Knock it off Susie”! “I mean it, we will just skip going to the pool”! “MOOOOOM/DAAAAAD” “That’s IT!” “We are staying HERE instead of going to the pool”!

This is just one of hundreds of scenarios I could throw at you. What if you want to go talk to someone on the other side of the lake or get some ice and a newspaper? There HAS to be a better way right? Indeed there is dear reader, a golf cart! A cart at the resort is an almost MUST HAVE, at least for the full timers anyway. Now your every once in a while campers are not going to run out and buy a cart nor are most of the weekend warriors but for us full timers, it’s an arguable necessity. Now my wife Paula and Mrs. Bitch Eyes would argue this fact as well as some of the other wives here at the resort but that’s beside the point. Maybe I should say it’s a necessity for us men at the resort and a few of the women?

For the past few years a fellow pond people couple has been the “top dog” when it comes to carts here. Bill and Wheezy try to add a little something to their cart every year. Their cart has a six inch lift kit, large tires with nice rims, red in color and is called the “Budweiser Cart” because it’s accented with Budweiser paraphernalia. It’s an awesome looking cart and after setting the bar quite high, they have lost their “top dog” title. All good things come to an end as they say.

Last year, my very good friend Terry said he was going to work on his cart over the winter and take the “top dog” award away from Bill and Wheezy in the spring. He kept saying to Bitch Eyes, Blind Tommy and I last year to just wait until we see his cart next year. We believed him but then again, seeing is believing.

Early this March, Terry called me and said I should come over and check out his cart. I drove to his place and we walked to the garage. He opened the door and turned the lights on and there she was. One of the most awesome carts I have ever seen. The son-of-a-bitch really did it! Since seeing is believing, take a look for yourself.

Along with what you see here are also headlights, taillights, and a stereo system that you can’t see. This cart is as sweet as honeysuckle molasses with a cherry on top! Sorry Bill and Wheezy but there is a new “top dog” in town!

Terry has certainly set the bar pretty high for the “top dog” award with this beauty. I’m sure someone will come along someday and steal his title like he did from Bill and Wheezy. I pray that it’s ME! 😉

    Sounds a little bit like Cart Envy. ;+) Did you buy your cart yet? Wasn’t that what you were going to do with your tax refund? Pictures say 100 words, lets see the pics. By the way that is a Beautiful Golf Cart. I can see what the fuss is, that would be really fun to have.
