How much you want for those Pro V1s, old man?
Any really nice ones go to my son-in-law. They'll be over tomorrow evening and I supposed he'll raid my basement stash for a couple dozen. He'd disown me if I didn't keep some available for him. Hmmm... maybe....!!! :>)

Just so you know I'm not pulling your leg. The right hand 2 stacks are ProV's. Some ProV and some ProVx. Next stack is misc Titleists... Velocity, Tour Soft. Next couple stacks are Callaway. Mostly Chrome Soft. Some SuperSoft. Rest are misc Srixon, TM TP5, Top Flite, Bridgestone, and even a full dozen MOJO. :>)

Now, at almost 77 years old, you can see why I hope to not have to purchase golf balls again!!! Of course, if the SIL gets too grabby... he'll have to buy me some Top Flites or Maxfli's to tide me over. :>)

What I see is that it would have taken me more than 3 years to eat enough eggs to do that. ;) I like the creativity!!!

Probably have another six or eight empty egg cartons ready. But, have told her I have enough for now and just toss those she empties. I married a farm girl who loves to cook! Difficult to keep my "girlish figure"!! She bakes for her "coffee girls". Some of them in their 80's no longer can handle baking.
Believe it or not, even being an excellent cook/baker my wife is still a quite petite lady. When we married 57 years ago this month, she didn't even weigh 100 lbs. The first time she went over 100 was with her first pregnancy. After 3 kids and a significant additional number of years, she hasn't added much to that. She won't tell me, but I'm guessing she's still under 120.

Pretty funny, my wife grew up on a farm also (1/2 the time), her stepfather was a farmer.

My wife doesn't like eggs, milk, and eats her steaks Medium-well (used to be only well done). I generally only eat breakfast on rare occasions, or when we are traveling and it's included, or when she is traveling I usually make it for Dinner a lot. So a 1/2 dozen eggs last us around a month, only buy them by the dozen if they don't sell 1/2 dozens.

I do 95-98% of the cooking, because I love to cook. I don't bake outside of our breadmaker, because I have never been much for precise measuring. Only ever use measuring devices for Rice or Bread.

.... and she was the only one in her family tree that went to Kansas over K-State. ;)

Our oldest daughter cannot cook. Her husband has done all their cooking. Their youngest daughter, now 17, is quite a baker. Son-in-law took a job a few months ago where he's on the road 4 days/week. She isn't doing well trying to cook for herself. :>)
The boy has an entire wall full of gold and silver medals from American Culinary Association competitions. Not one of his deployments, either with the 82nd Airborne or 5th Special Operations Group, has had anything to do with cooking. His first 15 month tour in Iraq he said they did cook hotdogs on a grill 2 of the weekends he was there.
I had over 2,000 nights in hotels the last 15 years of my career. Never ate out once! Stayed in hotels that had breakfast. Took makings for sandwiches, etc. with me for lunch. Wife would send various things I could stick in a microwave or mix with canned soups to eat for supper.
Growing up, EVERY morning had 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon, 2 pieces of toast and a bowl of cereal for breakfast. We milked Jersey cows so had lots of cream. Used cream on the cereal instead of milk. Wonder why I had weight issues growing up!!!!

Perhaps you now understand when i say I haven't purchased any golf balls for a significant length of time. It also explains why I don't quibble about our group's 20 second rule to look for a lost ball. :>)

My father in law got 12 chickens...we've been eating a TON of eggs over the last year.

Then my aunt has a friend that has an egg business. She has 1700 layers right now and sells 300-400ish dozen a weekend at farmers markets...she gives us 10-15 dozen a week of the ones that she can't sell because they're either slightly cracked, misshaped, or not evenly colored...

We give a lot of those to family and friends. Haven't bought eggs in so long now...

How do yawl season your cast iron or carbon steel cookware?

Can't wait to tell you how you're wrong and you should feel ashamed of yourselves.
