Mark, Greg, Rob and Craig getting ready to break on through the fog. You could hear the surf breaking but could not see it as the fog was too thick. Mark said it would be worth the paddle out because "When it breaks at Garth's it's usually good". Mark was right, all was good, until he ran over Craig and put him out of commission.
Greg catches one of the little peaks rebounding off the jetty.

When I arrived at Best Buy and went to the rain check redemption counter the clerk told me to go to the department a get the HD there. There where no HD's on the shelf. I returned to the counter and the clerk told me that if the HD was not on the shelf then they did not have any. The clerk then went into the backroom to look for the HD. When the clerk returned she said that the HD was not in the back room. I asked the clerk " Why did Best Buy send me an email telling me the HD was in stock? And how would I know when it would be in stock?". The clerk then sought help from someone else. The new clerk went into the back room and returned with the HD with my name printed on it. Whew!
But that is not the end of the story. When I went to the checkout counter they informed me that the rebate had expired and I would have to pay full price !
No thanks, I will never purchase anything at a Best Buy again, and that's how you lose customers, Sell your best buy stock now!.

Mabel came out of retirement to spice up a bachelor party for a 80 year old who was marrying a seventy year old!
Don't worry, there where no wrinkles exposed.
Mabel had a real scare. While checking her breasts for lumps , she thought she discovered a mass, but it turned out to be her beltbuckle. Mabel is for hire if you have the desire.

I blasted Fuji for bad Customer Service a couple of posts ago, so here is a post about a great company.
I ordered a t-shirt from thoseshirts.com and the size that I ordered (XL) turned out to be much shorter than all my other XL t-shirts. Now, I'm not into belly shirts or mullets, so I e-mailed Customer service requesting an exchange. I received an immediate answer saying :" No Problem, We'll send you a XXL shirt right out. Don't bother sending the XL shirt back, keep it."
So now my wife and I have matching t-shirts ! They have some great shirts at thoseshirts.com so give them some business.

Fuji Cameras Suck
Posted by Hello
I paid $400.00 dollars for this camera after reading good reviews and recommendations from PCMagazine. 18 months after I purchased the camera it failed due to poor manufacturing. Screws inside the camera that had held the lens ring in place became loose and short circuited the camera. I searched the internet and found that this was not uncommon for this to happen ! I sent the camera to Fuji for repair along with a letter to customer service stating what had happened and that my repair experience with this camera would dictate whether or not I would be purchasing any more Fuji products. I sent two letters one to the repair facility and one to Customer service. I received no correspondence from Fuji . I received only a computer generated repair tag estimate for the repairs at $118.00. Needless to say I will not be purchasing anymore Fuji Products.
Buyer beware of Fuji.

Here's where I flew my paraglider

Bruce at The San Felipe Marina
Posted by Hello
Bruce and I went down to San Felipe, Mexico to retrieve Bruce's motorhome(1977). San Felipe is on the Sea of Cortez 125 miles south of Calexico, CA. We stopped at my sister Sue's house on the way down to take advantage of her hospitality. On Sunday morning we were off again, arriving in San Felipe Sunday afternoon. After locating the storage facility where Bruce's motorhome was stored we tried to start it with no luck. We went into town to get some fresh gas. The storage attendant said she would wait for our return, for it was close to closing time. When we returned and reentered the storage yard to continue our work the attendant locked us in unbeknownst to us until we later tried to exit. We spent the rest of Sunday locked in the storage lot.
We made some minor repairs to the motorhome spent a couple days scouting out places to fly. I was able to get one very short flight at the bluff across from our camping spot, but the wind was cross and light. Every other attempt we made was met with winds that were to strong. We did play golf one day at a local "Sand Course", no grass, all sand including the "greens".
We left Mexico on Wednesday and arrived home Thursday afternoon after stopping once to duct tape back on some fiberglass siding and to change a fuel filter half way up California. All in all a good trip !

Lynn goin' backwards!
Posted by Hello
Hey I'm back!, not that anybody has been reading. We went up to Mt. Shasta to go ice skating. Lynn and I had not been ice skating in about 25 years. This was my 4th time ever, but Lynn of course grew up in Wisconsin so she was rippin'.
