Thank you for trying to make the uninitiated feel included. I know you've ridden a mat. Therefore, I know this message will stay up for you. Good try, MF, but you've had a taste of the mat Kool-Aid and you're now one of us!
...............and it was a hearty LOL from him!
I want to get one this summer in the next 2 months.. I will need your help! =)..
You've got my help. We can do a mat session. All you need to bring is fins. I have several mats. But if you don't have fins, I have extras and I'd bet our feet are close to the same size.
Forgive my lack of worldliness... who is Faulkner ?? Does he surf ??
William Faulkner drank a lot. A lot!! Surfing? Nope.
I'm puting a little aside each month for one - perfect for NE beach breaks. Huge fan of your blog out here, it always gets me stoked. Check mine out of you feel like it. Faulkner! Growing up we called my grandmother Dilsey - silent but not dumb, unchanging, and around forever. "I seed de beginnin, en now I sees de endin" . I have to read that book agian. Be well & all the best.
Hey, JM!!! I love your blog too! I do look at it. I've just been a lurker.You know what's funny? When I was in grad school, I did not even want to take that class in Faulkner. I just bristled at the idea of having to read all of this work by this white Southern dude who had to be racist and who probably couldn't even write that well. Guess what? Faulkner was mind-blowing for me! I don't think I've ever recovered from the shock and awe I felt after reading the works of this genius. I've found writers who are similar (Toni Morrison and Jose Saramago), but Faulkner is, for me, perfection.
Ha! Foiled....yes I have had a go on the mat. And it was fun. I might be on it now if my ankle could stand the flippering, but may have another real go when I am fully fit.Hope you had a fun mat-meet. Waiting for all the pics.
Awesome pic! Love my mat and wouldn't trade it for the world!
