Thanks for the kind words. I'm cool with not getting press with the big mags. Nevins is the best. I do know, that I get over 10,000 visitors to my site every week. Must be doing something right. I like the "Underground King" that's pretty cool and there's some truth to it.
I checked out BERN Helmets and I gotta tell you, I like they way they look. Really cool looking headgear. Kind of a modern military looking, assault gear. I love that shit. Strap an M-4 across my back and I'm good to go! Keep up the good work yourself! . I'm just glad you're tuning in.
Thanks again. Keep surfing!
Hi Ralph, 4/28/09
for posting a couple of pics of me. I think I have maybe one or two
photos of myself from all the years I've been surfing. Pic # 62 and
66 from 4-23 were me. That was my 3rd time out this season after just
snowboarding all winter. Last year I surf maybe 4 times in the fall
after a back injury laid me out all summer. It feels good to know that
I can still through down in the water a little bit. Any way you could
email those pics?
Thanks for the kind words. Glad you liked the photos. Looks like you knew what you were doing out there. It's been a great Spring for surfing, and it was a great winter for Snowboarding. I can email you those photos in a high res for you if you want. I do it all the time. I typically sell them for $25 pr pic.I may have more of you as well. Maybe you should wait and see what I post next week and see if there's anymore you want. Then you can send me a check and I'll mail you a HighRes CD.
Everyone needs a good photo of themselves surfing. A good High Res photo.
RALPH , 4/27/09
WAS JUST WONDERING HOW LONG TILL YOU GET THE REST OF YOUR WEBSITE ALL
DONE. I HAVE BEEN EAGERLY AWAITING. I KNOW THE CONSISTENT SURF WE HAVE
HAD THE PAST 10 WEEKS HAS PROBALLY SLOWED THE PROCESS DOWN SOME. NO
HURRY JUST WONDERING IF THERE IS A POSSIBLE COMPLETION DATE. I SURFED
"JOES REEF" LAST THURSDAY AND IT WAS THE FUNNEST SESSION I
HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. IM A REGULAR FOOT AND HAVE BEEN RIDING A 9'2"
MCTAVISH ORIGINAL (DAVE CROP LET ME USE IT TO SEE IF I LIKE IT). I HAVE
TO SAY I LIKE IT BUT I WONDER IF A FLATTER BOARD WOULD BE ANY BETTER
SOMETHING WITH A LITTLE LESS ROCKER I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN RIDING LONGBOARDS
SO I THOUGHT I WOULD ASK YOU WHAT YOU THOUGHT. I KNOW WHEN IM ON MY
ROBERT AUGUST I CAN GET TO THE NOSE ALOT QUICKER AND I FIND ITS EASIER
TO TURN AND PUMP DOWN THE LINE. THERE WAS A SECTION ON THE RIGHT I WAS
RIDING AT "JOES REEF " THAT I JUST COULDNT MAKE. I DONT KNOW
MAYBE ITS JUST ME. I DID GET COMPLETLY COVERED IN THE BARREL FOR THE
FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME AND THERE JUST HAPPENED TO BE SOMEONE PADDLING
OUT WHO SAW THE WHOLE THING. SO I DID WHAT YOU WOULD DO. I PUT HIM IN
THE WITTNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM LOL. ANYWAYS HOPE TO SEE YOU IN THE
WATER SOMETIME. I DID WATCH YOU SURF THE OTHER DAY AT FOX HILL YOU LOOKED
LIKE YOU WERE HAVING FUN ALL BY YOURSELF. I WAS TO TIRED TO PADDLE OUT
THERE AND THOUGHT YOU WOULD ENJOY A SESSION BY YOURSELF SO I JUST WATCHED.
man MASSIVE FILES, i know i suck. No calls from GI Joe yet....still
on the look out. These are all shots of me from this past thursday morning.
Way past the deadline. Hope your good buddy!
right. With all the photographers sending me pics, I couldn't wait any
longer for these.
P.S. If that Gas Bag calls, you need to remind him, that Hampton is OFF limits for him, or he faces being arrested. I'm serious. Impersonating a Veteran-is against the law.
Thanks, by the way, love the new site and the political commentary. I cant believe this new administration is considering its own combat veterans to be probable domestic terrorists. Keep up the fight. Some of us appreciate your point of view.
Cool pics Tim. I've been out there a few times. Really pretty spot.
I really like the format now, the photos look great against that grey background. Its easier to see all the photos and read all the captions. I though the Easter Column was great, best so far, so many fantastic photos, great story about Duffy.
I know its not a competition, but I am jealous of those great sunrise shots you have been getting, those are very difficult shots, very tricky light. I plan on getting to the beach much earlier in the future. Great shots of Carden and Shipley and Yourself. good to see you guys on the other side of the lens.
The Greek Easter column is great also, even though the swell didnt match the previous weeks, you got lots of real interesting shots. And I really liked the caption about the big gas bag with the squeaky voice bet you will be getting a call from Pirate Jonas soon.
The cloud shots were amazing, again very tricky light and not much contrast, great job. I really liked the UFO clouds. Hopefully some surf comes from this storm and I can contribute some photos this week, Everyone elses recent photos have been very inspirational. I gotta get over the film mentality and get experimenting, mistakes in digital can be deleted at no cost, I gotta remember that and get shooting.
Hope all is well, great job, I know the transition has been a challenge, but I think the end result is great!
Thank you Ed.
It's Michael here ... the tall guy. You have a good memory! I own a printing business in Hollis and am fortunate to be able to get out whenever I want ... my boys are 8 and 10 so I hope to get 'em started this summer as well ... they have declared that they've had enough of body boarding. Your writing is always an inspiration ... Keep up the good work & I'll see you in the water!
Thanks for the kind words Michael. Hope your sons get the surfing bug like we all have. My son turned the corner at age 8. Now he's way better than I am out there. Which is a good thing. More waves coming...
Get those printing jobs done!
P.S. If you ever want to join the Surfer related businesses on my weekly, let me know. You'd be the ONLY printer.
has been a healing process being able to look into the box that I kept
the lid on for more than 40 plus years. I encourage everyone to talk
to a veteran and listen sincerely to what they have to say whatever
it may be. Again much thanks for the e-mail and do keep in touch. I
will do the same. We are bonded brothers by the experience.
I saw the BTL DVD for the first time last night with my wife. Wow! I really liked it. I thought it was so cool to see all of you guys again. I don't know about my own interview...though. I feel funny seeing myself. But overall I thought it was really well done.
Here's a link to my column this week. www.ralphspic.com Click on the photo of Tom and check him out in my gallery. *There's also some of me surfing taken by John Carden. I'm riding the Yellow and Red Longboard.
Hope all is well with you guys. Again, it was so neat seeing you and Tom in the movie.
4/19/09 Really great column. One of your best in terms of content. I like the
birthday surf stories. I love that guy praising the wall construction photo!!!! (That would make a great stand alone photo for the newspaper.) You took some great lifestyle stuff, Ralph. The four fins pic among many others. Nice cutline on my fast wave pic- thanks. You snaked my Boar's Head angle but good!! Haha. Such a great view, how can you not. Remember Aaron Chang's photo even closer up at the same angle? - sic photo I remember to this day.
The dog sniffing the fur! That's just wrong! Your website is a feast! No one does what you do, mah bruthah! I just want you to know that when anyone speaks negatively about you for whatever reason (and it happens from time to time), I try to set them straight.
(I'm writing this realtime as I read through the site.) Thanks for the nod as a Veteran! I did notice the flag in that shot right away. Funny.
Wow! I made it on the front page- sweet! Right on (say like Lenny to drummer would). Bird photo funny.. pestering you. Sick cloud pics. I see you used my info- right on! I am sooo jealous of Brian and Mike.. damn that snow looked fun. My god, his photos are great. We gotta get some shots next year. How about those snowboarders- sick.
My photos of you are good! Friday was a memorable day for sure. Julia's Hawaii window pic is outstanding. Where were you surfing in the vid? Can we please go to Hawaii and meet Bernie?!!!! The absolute most perfect waves and light and color and surfers. I want to get a water housing.
Finally a sniper shot to replace mine from years ago that is still hung up to this day in the guys bathroom at CR's!!!!!
Mahalo my brother. Thank you.
Mahalo, my brother. Got back at 2AM his morning. 47 of snow in 8 days. Rode 21 one day, 18 the next. Some of the steepest and deepest shit Ive EVER been in. Like pitching into a double overhead ledge only in this case the mountain doesnt fall on you if you blow it. Out of control. The closest thing to surfing you will ever find. This is a sequence shot the one day the sun came out otherwise it was snowing so hard you couldnt see 10
Mahalo my brother. Say what?
Hi Ralph, 4/16/09
Hope you all had a Happy Easter! That's awesome that you guys got some waves! We had some waves here too. I camped up at North Shore Saturday night and woke up Easter morning to some decent waves and great weather! Couldn't have asked for a better day! There are also some pics of a sunset that I caught while hiking koko head.
Same to you Julia. happy easter. We saw your family at church Easter Morning. Keep Surfing!
to hear from you. Saw your photos on the Web Re: Memorial Paddle Out.
Cool.Last September I went to see "Between The Lines" with
my son Vic. At the New York Surf Film Festival. It was a great event.
We spoke with John Milius.Ty too. I'm doing a project, at the local
TV station, with a friend called Poncho Rotation. So far 7-1/2hr tapes.
A buddy that served with me in Nam is coming to visit soon. We went
In Country together and left together!
was thinking of you a lot the last two months. Leatherneck had a long
series about Dai Do.
Ty Ponder emailed me and said he was mailing a copy of the DVD Between the Lines. He says I'm in the extras...he must mean all of us at the paddle. That is still one of the most memorable events of my life. I see Tom Woods down at the beach a lot. It's still too cold for him. We won't be coming to the NE Regionals this year. I can't afford it. And Max (my son) is not competing. He's into school sports and surfing for fun these days.
I hope life is treating you well. Be good my friend and stay healthy.
Hey Ralph, 4/14/09
Howz it? Thanks for the weekly updates . I love it. I am going to see the Sox tonight in Oakland ...about an hour away. Dice K on the mound. I am sitting behind the A's dugout about 12 rows from the feild! If you are watching on NESN ...I have a white goatee ...Blue Boston Red Sox cap...Gray hoodie...beer in hand. GO Red Sox.
again for your weekly,
Tony hope the Sox win and you can rub it into the local Oakland fans and then get your ass chased outta there. Kidding. I am stoked that you dig my weekly column. Keep surfing!
Going with regularity. Im actually a Northern California native, raised on Ocean Beach SFand Santa Cruz reefs, who transplanted, due to family commitments, to New England in 2005part of the newest invasion back East that seems to be in the Media a lot these daysI love surfing on any Coast, and see the ocean as one big playground for us all.
Glad you're stoked Micky. Keep surfing!
been reading about all the great surf you've had. Wish I could have
made it up there for a few photo sessions from the wall but I have been
sick...the kind of flu where you just can't move off the couch....for
well over a week. Back in the game today though (sort of) today.
you. Yes the D-90 is a great camera. It's hard not to take so many photos
Hope you all had a Happy Easter!
Hope all is well with you and the family, hows MVFs lax season going?
Just to clarify, (you might need reading glasses with extra magnification properties) Im wearing a 4x3 hooded Excel full suit in those pics. The suit fits so well I may appear naked to those with impared vision.
Douglas S. H. California
Now why ya gotta be so damn hurtful? My brother...I am so sorry...but you are wearing a damn hood with no boots! Come on Dougie! I start shooting the LAX documentary tonight at practice. The season opener is tomorrow. Mackey V is playing both Attack and Defense, and the coaches love him for his intensity.
I'll keep you posted.
man, you guys have made WAY more waves than us the last few weeks! I
wouldn't mind slapping on a 6/5/4 at this point just to get wet!
all in 4/3's now...that 6/5/4 shit is for wooses this time of year.
The water temp's in the low 40's. It's damn near tropical! And...we
have another swell hitting in a day or two...Oooh that's got to hurt.
Just wanted to point out that the Nevins shot of Mike Moran perched on the nose you mentioned actually ran in ESM before Surfer... full-page, with quotes and input directly from Mike on longboarding the East Coast, in our March 2009 issue, which hit the streets a full month before Surfer's issue with the (otherwise excellent) story on Nevins, LaVecchia, and Northern New England. Just wanted to throw that tidbit of info out there for you and your readers...
Hope all is well with you, keep the excellent coverage of your little slice of heaven coming!
100% correct. Here's the updated version. Seeing his shot of Mike Moran
perched high on the nose, during last Thanksgiving's swell, is inspiring
to all of us. Surfers, photographers, and to those who live here. *That
same photo of Mike Moran also ran in ESM last month as a Full Page photo
with a cool little story and quotes from Mikey himself. And it's also
the cover shot on GROOVEMASTERS my Longboard DVD. His black and white
Wall shot taken from his apartment is destined to be a New England classic
Looking forward to the next ESM issue.
Just after I spoke with you a few weeks ago about the updated version of RPOTW, I spoke with my son Emlyn about his thoughts with regards to the design, and we talked about what we thought were the drawbacks and advantages of the format as it existed then. Without going in to exactly what we talked about, all I can say is by last weeks posting, you had basically taken care of what we thought were the drawbacks, and ramped up the advantages.
I think you are on the right track, and you may have nearly arrived at RPOTW Nirvana.
If you want to check out what Emlyn has been up to on the web, check him out at www.eastokes.com, or www.surfingstoke.com
Anyway, we both felt that having the big pictures with captions on the main page is better than tiny thumbnails, but now, entering a gallery through the photos is excellent.
Keep it up!
Thanks for your valuable input. I respect your opinion. And I'm happy to hear that I have struck a chord with you and your son. And even more happier that I hit the nail on the head (finally). Thanks Peter and I was impressed with your son's websites and projects. Wow. Really neat stuff.
Be good and as always keep surfing!
Hey Ralph, 4/11/09
I've been living about 5 minutes north of the Wall for a while since moving from Virginia (about a 30 min from Virginia Beach) and surfing it and the Rocks whenever school/waves work out and I did the exact same thing as the guy you talked about in your last post. I left my board on the Wall like always, not thinking about the wind, and went to lock my car. About six feet from my board I realized what an idiot I was and turned around. My board wasn't there and two girls who were sitting on the wall were looking down in disbelief. The this one wasn't epoxy... Dings/dents and a smashed tail. You'd think I'd have surfed for years to think of something simple and stupid like that...
That's funny. Look you're not alone. I've seen my nephew do it to one of my favorite boards. I chased him all the beach that day. I just saw it happen again the other day. And this time I took a photo. I'm posting it. I bet it never happens again though with you.
fun Sam...life's too short to get upset about dinged boards. Keep Surfing!
Thanks for your quick response. I mailed the letter to the shop (cinnamon Rainbows). I didn't realize I had your email address. Your board is awesome. Nice waves! You look like you are having so much fun out there. I wish I could have joined you!
I went to Japan in October it was really interesting. I went to Texas to take care of my mother-in-law. She was diagnosed with Cancer and needed surgery in November. I returned to Georgia in January and had surgery. The surgery was to remove shrapnel on both legs both arms my stomach and back. It is funny. You could see where the vest plates were. They were the only spot without the shrapnel. I had a great surgeon. They flew in a plastic surgeon from Chicago. I have minimal scaring. My recovery has been going great. I flew back out to Texas in March. My mother-in-law had another surgery. She is recovering and doing great. They didn't find anymore cancer so she will undergo a few radiation treatments and regular check ups. Her surgery was on April fools day (the same day my Grandpa died last year). I just got back home on Tuesday. TJ, my hubby, left for special forces selection today. I am sure he will do great. I am so proud of him.
Ok enough about me, what is new with you? How is the crew? Can I write a letter of appreciation to the Legion for all of their support? What about all of the volunteers. Please let me know. Continue to inspire!
That's great news about your latest surgery success. I knew Vets who used to set off the Metal detector alarms at airports. Crazy. They lived their entire lives with that stuff embedded in them. Glad your's is out. Good riddance.
I hope you're Mother-in-law keeps doing better. I hate cancer. My own Mother passed of Cancer in Oct 2007. My best friend who was both a great surfer and a War Hero died in 1978 of cancer...I mean the list goes on and on. I guess we all know someone who's life has been altered due to that disease. The good news is it's not a death sentence like it used to be. But I'll say a prayer for your Mother-in-law.
Did TJ make the cut? I hope he did. I was impressed with the NAVY SEALS yesterday in Somalia. You have to love the Special Forces! You should check out my weekly surf blog. www.ralphspic.com I think you'd get a kick out of it. I also have links to our Post website there too. Got to get back to work. Great hearing from you. Hope you get to try that new surf board out in some fun (warm) waves.
Remember, Surfing heals all wounds.
you are reading this email, Thank a teacher. If you are reading it in
English, Thank a soldier. Support Our Troops
Great to hear from you. And thank you for the kind words. No I never got your letter. Where did you mail it to? Regardless, I'm so happy that you all got so much out of that day. Believe me, we all did. It was such a wonderful experience for all of us. And what was extra special for me, was seeing some of my friends, who have no military experience what so ever, get a little better understanding of the character of our brave men and women in uniform.
Yes, that day was special in so many ways.
I may have mentioned to you that I write a weekly surf column. After all, I've been surfing since 1964. Damn, I must be old. It was 40 years this Summer that I was in Vietnam...Yikes. Someday you'll be saying the same thing to someone. Whoa...can you imagine that telling someone that you were in Iraq 40 years ago? It's coming kid. And quicker than you think.But honestly you should check out my weekly blog/column. I have all the last 6 years archived and you can go back and see that day you guys were all here. Here's the link. www.ralphspic.com If you forget or lose it just remember Ralph's Pic of The Week and Google it.
It's funny because, long before you guys came up I have ended each column with "Surfing heals all wounds".
Meanwhile here's a few pics of me and my new board. I think you'll get a kick out of it. And some of you from that special day. I hope you and your husband and family have a Happy Easter. Tell your mom I said hello.
of you have provided significant and wonderful contributions to Between
the Lines, The True Story of Surfers During the Vietnam War. I would
like to get you each a finished copy of the film and again offer our
sincer gratitude for your contributions.
can't wait to see the DVD as I have not been able to see any of the
Thanks again and I look forward to seeing the DVD.
this is such an awesome shot of you. it pretty much wraps up how
friend of mine just forwarded me a few images from my last trip to Nicaragua
of the young girl Wendy and I at the beach. Besides a reminder of needing
to start a weight loss program... I had a good reminder of those few
moments in life that you strive to be a part of.
by email 4/8/09
plan on coming by to get my Secret Spot wrap one of these days. So...what
do you think?
And so you like this latest format where you can scroll though both
the thumb nails
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that the way you had the photos last month was better and quicker to view. I do like the new website and I think the sponsors you have are really cool and I like checking out their sites. I also thing some type of blog spot under photos or a link of the web page would be awesome and help build a sense of surfing community I just wanted to let you know your site helps me get through the winter. I havent gotten a chance to surf since October because I am at college right now, but looking at the pictures on your site keeps me stoked and helps me survive this long time on land. I think the local NH surfing community is building because of your site. When I tell people I surf in New Hampshire, they look at me like I am crazy, but now I can send them a link to your site It makes me proud when I tell people that I surf in New Hampshire. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the feedback. I thought this latest look is the best of both worlds. You can scroll through the thumbs, or the larger pics.
Thanks for the kind words too. It's true about people not getting that we get surf in NH. Hell, I know people who live in Hampton all their lives, and don't know there's surf here. Oh well...I guess that's why Surfing is so special. It's not for everyone.
Hey there ralphie!! 4/6/09
Didnt even know you where shooting that afternoon. looks like you got some great shots!! A couple nice barrels, wish I would have made a few!! Haha! Anyway just wanted to say the site looks awesome!
Thanks man, I really do appreciate it. I was hiding up by 8th Street, and saw you catch some great waves. Man you were flying all over the place. Full throttle, balls to the wall, aggressive surfing in some meaty waves in your front yard. Good stuff. I also got a clip of you as well in the viddy of the week.
I'm really glad you like the new format. I figure it's easier for people to scroll thru, and see either the larger pics ,or just the thumbnails. It's been a lot of work. But worth it. Gonna be some Big Surf again tomorrow. Damn this has been a hell of a run...what is it 5 weeks in a row?
Thanks again. See you around the campus.
The only problem with the new style is; my Monday morning ritual is taking so much longer that my production these mornings is weak! Awesome setup! Great pictures! Great new website!
Thanks a lot for the stoke!
Monday, April 6, 2009, 6:40 PM
my name is cj fisichelli and im pretty sure you dont know me but i know
perry reynolds and i hang out with him and surf with him over the summer.
I am a local and i live in Methuen but i surf all around new hampshire
and salisbury considering i have a house in salisbury. I have a few
surf pics that i was just gonna give it a shot and maybe there quality
for your site. I dont know if they are tho because the waves r only
like thigh to waist but there decent. So i just wanted to send you some
to see if i could get em up on your site cuz that would b so sick. your
site is wicked good and i just wanted to give it a try. but i do not
know how to make the pictures smaller so if you do want to check out
the pics can you email me how to do it please. Thanks so much. cj
Thanks for writing and thank you for the kind words. I'm stoked to hear that you have an interest in both surfing and surf photography. So why don't we do do this. Try sending me one photo. Just one photo. When I get it, I can write you back and let you know if that worked or not. If it is OK I'll let you know.
Thanks for dropping me a line and thank you for the kind words. I figured one of these days, I'd either see you in person, or someone would tell you that I've posted a few pics of you. Glad you like them. This new look of the site is brand new today. I actually launched and posted at 3:00AM...man I'm beat. Surfing, shooting and surfing again is tough at my age. Do you like the new format? I've gotten quite a few emails this morning and they are all very positive about the new look.
Don't know who served in the Military in your family, but please tell them that I said "thank you" for their service.
I will always believe John McCain would of made a better president at this time. But BHO has my support. Not because he's black. Not because he's a Democrat. But because he's an American, and he's our Commander in Chief. The office of the presidency, deserves all of our respect.
Thanks again for writing Scott, and if you see me around the campus, be sure and say hello.
Hi Ralph, 4/2/09
I am from Haverhill, MA and surf at the wall and other New England areas frequently and read your Pic of the Weeks. I like the new site. I have been in Australia for the last few months and we just got some epic swell from Tropical Cyclone Jasper. Here are a few shots I got with my Canon Powershot SD750 from Burleigh Beach. Most of the waves are empty, the surfers are unknown. I'll send you some of my favorites. I'm not sure if the specs are exactly what you need, I am new to this photography stuff but I'm learning.
for sending these. They were a little on the large size. But better
big than small.
Hey Ralph, 4/2/09
Hope all is well? Things are good, 100mph, but no complaints. Did you hear about this surfer? To think we once welcomed him here with open arms.
I like your column, and have some comments to your football remarks:
1. Vrabel priced himself off the team, PATS were no way going to absorb $4+MM roster bonus for a player his age(post peak)
2. Keep an eye to the browns, cutler will likely end up there in a three way trade
3. If Peppers from Carolina does come to the pats, you will see Seymour play his last season this season as a PAT, he's due for a signing and roster bonus (FA status) and they will likely deal up for draft picks and get more worth that way.
4. Keep your on eye on ACC/Big 10 College quarterbacks this year, there is about a dozen that willl be entering the NFL in 1-2 years, this pool is getting rich w/ talent. Tom Brady has played more games today than he will for the rest of his career...remember I was the first to tell you that. less than 75 to go, if the knee holds out?????
Remember the NFL stands true to this core...Not For Long.....
i can see you at Jimmy's show tomorrow night?
he is a Big Gas Bag Coward. I've called him out of the water so many
times in the last 30 plus years, that I've basically given up. That
and the fact that he claims he was the Male Model for GI JOE. That's
Bullshit. Mitchell Paige a WWII Medal of Honor Recipient, who fought
on Guadalcanal with the Marines was the Male Model for GI JOE. Google
As far as the PATS are concerned...I still have not gotten over the 18-1 season. It's like a bone caught in my throat that I can't dislodge. We had a chance to be the BEST team in NFL history. Assante you couldn't pick one more off for your boys? Don't get me started.
Cassell was a welcome relief from that horrible season and it made watching the PATS fun again. Looks like McDaniels got himself in a tub of hotwater trying to lure Casell to Denver. But the other turncoat Scott Pioli snagged him first. I hate the business of high paying sports. I'm so old school it ain't funny. I liked it when a team had pride and motivation to stay with one another as a team. Not some price tag.
Back in 2001 the Pats were like an old school team for awhile. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy to have witnessed 3 Superbowl Victories. But if they had gone 19-0...I would NEVER EVER open my mouth and say anything bad ever again about the BEST Team in the History of the NFL. Instead, I've become a grumpy old Pats fan again.
Oh well...things could be worse.
Thanks for the kind words, and thank you for adding my link to your site. Yes, I'd be happy to include any info you guys might have. I have a community page, that was designed for these sorts of things. Let me know what you have after your meeting, and feel free to email me, or give me a call.
Thanks. Keep surfing!
Nate. Shooting you that morning will be something I remember the rest
of my life. That cold ice coated sand. The blazing Red orange sun globe.
And you out there alone in perfect surf. It was like a New England Endless
