Fashion Advice Needed

A smart man once said to me, “women are rarely wrong and when they are wrong it’s best to keep your mouth shut.” Ok i am paraphrasing but those husbands and boyfriends like myself who like to keep skin and sanity abide by that simple rule. Agree or disagree?

Golf Fashion Advice Needed –

By Wayne Halm –

To some extent most men are dressed by women.  Below are the two that dress me these days.

Sally and Priscella They give me some clothes - I put them on - and go about my business - it's that simple. I like simple. Sally and Priscella
They give me some clothes – I put them on – and go about my business – it’s that simple.
I like simple.

 

However, my simple life is in danger.  They don’t always agree about what looks good on me – and recently they started asking what I liked.  I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but even I know to be careful with that answer.

They are women, so there is no right answer – BUT THERE ARE WRONG ANSWERS.  I need a buffer.  I really don’t want to make either or both mad.

I beg you – Please – Help me.  Look at the ten pictures below and decide which shirt you like best. …

According to professional golfer Phil Mickelson, choosing the right club for the situation is the first step if you’re going to be successful at any point. If you choose the wrong club you will miss your mark, no matter how well you swing. Also, the club that is right for a particular shot will change depending on the player’s ability.

The same is true in business. To succeed, you need to choose the right tool for the situation. That tool may be a particular hire that you make or what software you use. The tool that is right for your business in a particular situation can be different from what is right for another business in a similar situation. If you look at the game of golf long enough…

Who I am and why I’m here. . . .

OnionI could say I am an onion; multi-layered with subtle nuances the deeper you dig.  If I did actually write some gibberish like that I would be lying.  I could say that I am just a regular Joe looking for some outlet to untangle my personal and professional commitments into a single direction.  That would be closer to the truth but a little obtuse.  I guess you could say I am just a guy who enjoys writing about pretty much anything but due to life experiences being pretty much relegated to work, golf, and family, I write about what I really know — work, golf, and family.  I know it’s boring but it’s the truth.

So who am I?  I work in the packaging industry — specifically entertainment packaging.  I am quite literally the smokey room behind that smokey room.  My claim to fame in that industry is the “cake box.”  If you ever wondered who was responsible (Actually come to think of it why would you even be?) for manufacturing that case that held 25, 30, 50 or 100 CD-R discs in a tub, well I am sorry I ever even conceived that idea.  We supply DVD entertainment, Computer games, Spoken Word, and Religious market with pretty much any sort of rigid packaging they require.  My speciality in that rather small market is fairly obvious — multi-disc packaging.  I have been doing that pretty much for the past 20+ years.  I golf pretty much any chance I get which is often.  And in between the rounds of golf and occasional sales call or visit, I try to raise a family.

I enjoy blogging, so much so that I have three blogs — one for my work, another for my passion, and yet another just for the heck of it — my proving grounds so to speak.

That is who I am, now for why I am here.Eat Sleep Golf

I am here to learn.  Being competitive gives meaning to life.  Wanting more out of what you do and doing it better than anyone else at least in my mind is what drives me.  I want to create a series of blogs that would attract attention to all three parts of my life (work, golf and family) and hopefully give you a chuckle or two along the way as we make this journey together.

Misery hates company.  I kicked her to the curb.  So come and join me and share my passion for packaging, golf and the other stuff.
