Hey Dan, kelly's been in bed with the flu for two days. If she doesn't get better, I'll be baby sitting
You need to swing by and pick Gerard up though

You've been on the lake too much Dan!!!

Besides, as AudioFN says, you can't drink "all day" unless you start in the morning!

Nort, I'm sorry we missed Colettes B-day party. We tried to get out of prior commitments but could not. We need to hook up soon bro!

And yes, Dan has been on the lake too much

Nort, you need to watch the Seadoo race too??
Dude, the real race starts at like 10:30 ish.

SeeDoo race??? HUH?

There are actually two races......one race starts at 8:00am with a flare gun and about 100 boats.....each with a guy staring at a big piece of meat dangling by rope behind the boat, another guy slamming the boat into gear while forcing the throttles through the dash, and third guy squinting through the morning haze looking for a 20 foot wide spot to squeeze by the other 99 boats sprinting for the 1/4 mile opening in the Long Beach breakwater while the throttle guy struggles to listen to both the meat watcher and the squinter over the roar of 99 other crazy teams and 12-15 helicopters.....all this while probably hung over from the night before.

The second race is more like multiple "1 on 1" races starting after traveling 62 miles and about 58 minutes later....hopefullly with thier meat still attached to the end of the rope, the engines and drives still in operation as race teams sprint for the finish line directly in front of the Queen Mary.

It's a great race.

Kid, Prouty is talking about Sundays race. Not Saturdays. "Rum Runner Race". Are you doing Sunday too or just Saturdays?

And by the way, your testimonial of the Ski race should be used in some sort of ad for it
