Hello from the South!

LB,thanks for the message.All contact with home is welcome.I finally got a good day of waves yesterday(9/7/08) in Halifax at a point break called Backyards.It was 4-6' and very strong offshore winds from the remnants of Hanna.Hanna really fizzled out up here with 35 mph winds and a little rain.I'm glad NS was spared a damaging storm.The Dolan family here in Dartmouth are treating me like a king.Kevin(who I surf with)and his wife,Kathleen,have put me up for awhile as have Bill and Joanne his parents.Bill is a member of the National Woodie Club and we spent 9 hours in his garage trying to solve a break/blinker problem on the Plymouth.We solved the break light, but I'm going to have to get a new harness for the steering column to fix the blinker.We thought that an hour was all we needed and 9 hours later Voila'.You don't want to know what we discovered electrically once we dug into the situation.Let's just say;that I'm lucky that the car did not burn down.I'm happy that I have a quality"fire & termite" policy in force.I'm putting this on the website because I type so slowly it is easier to create content this way.Otherwise I would have to retype basically the same information for the blor followers.Hope you don't mind.Yours with the Waves,BIL aka Ralph

Hi Ralph!

Just wanted to say "hello"!

It looks like you are enjoying yourself.

I hope that Hanna has brought you some good waves.

BTW, the Woodie looks great!  Who injured the driver'sdoor and fender chrome?

Chad was in PRthis week, and had to make a quick departure due to Ike.

Take care, and I hope the surfing waves continue your way!


Brother in law,
