    LOL Marty! We will have to get you some shoulder boards or a hat with scrambled eggs to properly recognize your elevation to Grand General of the meet!

    I'm in - Creek Monkey sounds good.

    I hope to start depleting Creek Monkey's supplies around 6 PM, depending on traffic.

    :lol3 I have to take little miss to swimming first, leaving San Leandro by 17:30 (that's 5:30 pm for you land lubbers) and heading out via Bear Creek / Alhambra. So if traffic and such cooperates and the rotax parts the seas, 18:30 ish is landing time. I'm going to shoot to be at Bear Creek Road and Camino Pablo outside Orinda at 6pm and head out.

    @larryboy are you going this month? Iowa on the game plan? I'm still in until I flake - but looks good.

    Hey Marty good to see you, Greg and Justbob and Jim. I checked out helite, might actually have an inflatable jacket in my size to checkout...in 6X.... I know I'm a big guy but that sizing system does nothing to make me feel svelt.

    Hey I saw a sign for a Brewery/Pub in Fruitvale called Ale Industries. Any experience? Looks like a being food with you type of place.

    Their sizing seems to run at least 2 sizes smaller than anybody else.

    I haven't been to Ale Industries and I probably won't have a chance to check it out in the next several weeks, but I will eventually.

    105 office days. March 1 next year. Then I can yell "I am not a number, I'm a free man!"

    So you have a number to count down until you are no longer a number....

    OK. Works for me

    Sorry I missed the gathering but I have been snorkeling in Hawaii for the last 10 days.

    OK so I am not that sorry. See you next month

    Did I mention that I told the folks at work that after 37 years I expect a gold pocket watch as retirement gift, but it has to be broken.

    Hey Folks.

    Tuesday, August 22nd somewhere in Berkeley. Ideas? Must have beer, and casual attitude about who they let in.

    Cheers
