Hey Brownie I didn't see you on Saturday. Did you get the boat out okay?

I thought I saw you on a motorcycle Saturday morning on the way to work.

If that bike has Ohio plates, I passed you just as your hat flew off in the black Excursion.

Call me if you need help with the boat.

It does have Ohio plates. It belonged to Art Arfons (Green Monster). Thanks for not running over my hat.

Brownie, you amaze me; not only were (are) you in the thick of all the offshore stuff, you knew Arfons. There's another incredible legend!

That was quite the U-turn you pulled!! I looked and said "no way was that you" It was probably my jet wash that blew your hat off.

Art Arfons was a drag racer out of Cleveland/Akron right? Land speed guy in Bonneville too.

You'll love this. I am working with Dave Spangler on a quad Deep Impact (ex hooker header, another land speed guy) Who just got back from an attempt last week in Bonneville. I owe him a lunch at the Ft. Laud show.

Carl, my man George is coming down today to haul the boat. I will give him your number at the shop, and I appreciate your help.

Thanks for acknowledging my existence and including me in your exalted thoughts .

I must point out that you humbly failed to detail your part in perfecting the single hull catamaran. Many people don't realize that your wooden Cougars upon contact with rough seas....or even calm seas...automatically became two separate single hulled catamarans. Some of them also burst into flames creating a wonderful heat source for baking marshmallows...
