Masonboro with the Big Kids

I was invited to surf with the big kids today. The day started off with Amanda singing some silly song in a jazzy/bluesy tone before I went outside to mow the lawn.  I didn’t get too far, and for the first time since we moved into the house (not including the initial fill-up of course) I had to go refill the gas can we use for the lawn mower. While I was doing that I got a call from Barry Frazelle, who said that he and his daughter, Hannah Frazelle, were going to paddle over to Masonboro Island to surf, if I would like to join them.  The reason for this was that the waves appeared to be good but …

I e-mailed Jennifer Hunt, the lady who was doing the charity purses at www.uniqueworldtrends.com yesterday, or maybe it was before yesterday- I can’t remember now.  No, it must have been yesterday.  Anyway, I e-mailed her and told her I’d like to help her out with her site.  She mailed back today and so we’re going to discuss it tomorrow.  I’d have talked to her today but work was really busy. So it turns out Amanda does look at this website now and then.  If you’re reading this, my lovely little wife, I’d like to say hello to you.  You can leave a comment it you want by clicking where it says “0 Comments.”  That goes for anyone else looking at …

Snapped Leash

Went to church, picked up some bagels then came home for a bit.  Left a message for Andra but she never called back. Lazed about a bit- I was worn out from surfing and tired.  Went to Wrightsville anyway after a bit.  Michael came to our house to drop off some laundry and went out with us.  Water was rough and choppy.  Jackson was there again.  Another kid talked to me too.  Michael says I’m their mentor now.  They could do much better, if they want someone to teach them to surf. I went out and the leash detatch from my ankle.  Got smashed a second time and it snapped again so I took it in and traded up, but …

Surfing with Jackson

Got up, got to Wrightsville around 11:00, surfed most of that time until 4:00.  Because the Wahine Contest was being held in my surf spot there was very little area to surf in and that little area was crowded.  Mike and Kaitlyn Bosclajon were out there for a while, but Lars got frustrated.  Mike Ashcraft was out there too.  His daughter, Madison, was in the Wahine Contest.  Michael came a bit later. Talked to Andra and I thought Amanda and I were going to get Jackson tonight, but we didn’t.  Like taking away Christmas.  I was going to teach him to surf, have s’mores, buy him a comic book.  Met a different Jackson out surfing though, this eight year old …

Xbox 360 Controller Cord

Barry got me a copy of the Vampire Weekend CD and I was listening to it today.  It’s really good.  The songs that stand out the most to me are Oxford Comma and M79.  M79 I really like because of the use of strings in it. I was pretty busy this afternoon aside from a few e-mails with Amanda.  I called Mary Joe Quinn around noon to offer my condolences about John’s passing.  She told me how hard things had been in the few weeks since he’d been home- how he could hardly move except for his left arm and how it was difficult to move him around.  She gave me the awesome details about what happened right before he …
