The Rip Ryder's own has a birthday today. Keith, if there is a wish from your buds, it would be that we get an opening from the backside on S. Beach, kinda like the one on North Beach.

To our partner in crime... happiest of birthdays

Just think if you were born in May we'd all be buying you a Guiness now. You'd be a pretty drunk boy. :)

Keith...just a little follow-up for your birthday consideration.....I recently returned from Florida....while there I was invited by a filthy rich guy I had met, for a day of fishing on his yatch.
His boat was at a private yatch is what I experienced:
1. we arrived at the gated club and he punched in his secret code and the 10 ft gates opened....that would be a nice touch at the entrance of your Morris location;
2. a valet opened his door and took his car keys and waited for...
3. another attendant to take all our equipment out of the vehicle and then proceeded to load it in the boat;
4. our hands were held when we were guided on the vessel by a pretty young lady;
5. the guy ordered sandwiches and beer for our day trip of fishing....within 10 minutes our sandwiches arrived in decorative baskets and the beer was in a clear plastic aqua colored containers loaded with ice;
6. another attendant dumped the ice and beer in the built in cooler so we wouldn't strain ourselves
7. a quality control young lady asked if we had all that we needed and checked off her survey of our satisfaction.
Then he proceeded to "top off " his fuel at the tune of $275.
Upon our return....we were assisted off the vessel, our gear not only carried...but they also washed down all of our rods and reels....the valet returned the car to a close location so that we wouldn't strain ourselves, packed the vehicle for us and asked if all was OK.
Just thought that you might be interested in considering some of these services for this upcoming season:hihi:
PS: In replying, please remember that this is a family site.

I think I would "stain myself" if that happened at Morris Island! :lildevl: :lildevl:

Have a great day Keith. Looking forward to our first ride on the new Rip when we come out in May. The very best....Tom

02-04-2008, 09:56 AM be honest, I didn't like the major sucking up experience...really an uncomfortable experience being that tended to. I noticed that I was the only one saying "thank you" or "I appreciate that " to any of the "servants". It appears that the pampering is expected and desired by the members. But they pay for it....$100,000 one time initiation fee plus monthly dues. Still not right in my poor white thrash opinion. It was interesting though to see how the other .001 of the population lives.
And oh......he fished with live shrimp and I caught the biggest fish on a there was satisfaction :)

Happy Birthday Captain! Don't get any ideas about a $100,000 one time fee...However, if you want to adopt any of the other items my father mentioned please feel free...You an start by carrying our equipment up and down the stairs... :hihi: and maybe you could come out at noon with beer and sandwiches...

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'll be sure to have a Black and Tan for each of you on the 17th.

Please everyone, don't worry about Paxton's little fantasies(hallucinations):Eyecrazy: , you will see on Gary's birthday post, I have spoken to Gary about his father and this issue. You can all be assured Flydoc will be notified, and we will get his meds (cialis) back on track.

I will make a wish for his quick recovery during cake and ice cream.

I hesitate to air out family issues but, at "dad's" age, he's so confused that when he took Cialis his thumb stiffened up....:chuckle:

02-05-2008, 06:00 PM's official. I am going to change my FF site handle from Paxton to Rodney Dangerfield...just get no respect :)
Just one more question however.....would rubbing cialis on my Sage RPLXI change it from a medium flex to a fast action??? Just wondering.

02-05-2008, 07:59 PM
If it does and it last for more than 4 hours you are directed to call "Flydoc" immediately!

I see it did not take long for this post to stray off course.... Very funny:biggrin:
A belated Happy birthday to the good Capt'n

Glad to hear from you Warren, Hows winter life in the frozen tundra?

Well now that you asked....The New Hampshire weather is fine, been hovering around freezing with no real extremes
However I just returned from North Dakota and it was &^%$#& cold out there -30F (-34C for you metric types) and windy to beat the band
