SUP!




'Sup my buds? SUP also stands for Stand up Paddleboard and by golly if that wasn't one of the best days of my life. I am not even kidding, that's what I kept thinking later that day. I guess it's just one of the most fun things I've ever done, and to do it with the one you love is sublime. The lake water was so cold that when I fell off trying to gain my balance early on, it took the breath out of me a little. But later you get braver, and that's when you decide to do a back flip off your board. So a little water gets up your nose, you'll live! You're posting a happy picture of you with your bathing suit on which you normally wouldn't do...then you remember a wise German woman named Manuela who told you back in the Dominican Republic when you didn't want to run into the ocean in front of your boss...that life is just too short.

p.s. If you're going to Tahoe, Jerry and Sergio at West Shore Sports in Homewood will hook you up. Thanks guys.

p.s.s. look Danimal, no leashes (wink)!
