Deanna was the architect of a tremendous surprise birthday extravaganza. She planned 3 days on Catalina Island, each day with a new posse of friends. The first day, as I got into line in Long Beach for the boat, I turned around and saw Lindsay, Oliver, Ashley, and Mark. I was totally caught off guard.
We cruised over to the island in the Commodore's Lounge.
Santa Catalina is part of a bigger chain of Channel Islands.
Lindsay got a present for me: A strap on microphone and speaker system so I can give a guided tour as I steer the boat around... It was a BIG hit.
We strolled around after our boat adventure and Ashley
was feeling very patriotic.
We took pictures on the mermaid/mer-man bench, Mark couldn't resist
frenching the Howard Finster-esque
Later we discovered Marks dark secret, his only tattoo is a portrait of Roseanne Barr on his ass.
It was so nice to spend a day frolicking in the sun with some friends, thanks Deanna for making this happen, and to Ashley, Mark, Lindsay and Oliver for coming over and making this day super memorable.
We sent them off into the evening back home, it was nice getting to stay on the island as the boat went off to the horizon.
And a special THANKS to all the people who wished me a Happy Birthday on the comments page!!!!
