Murph, don't you believe Anon #2. You're a true leader in the sport. Had it not been for you, Laird, Yater, and Metz, we'd be stick in the 'dark ages'.

murphy, don't let em get you down.

remember its not too cold, too windy or too small.

you're too good. keep up the good work buddy.

murphy said...

Believe it or not, I did surf yesterday!

Yes, that's right Murphy. Don't let things fet you down. This San-O Daze tried to dismantle Henry Ford (County Lifeguard) and his ample belly, but it shan't happen to you. Lifeguard Ford bounced back, now he's Curator of the Legend's Museum located beside TSJ up on the hill, overlooking the ocean. Henry is an ongoing
'Living Legend', as are you. I know both of you remember the S.S.Dominator. See, there you go. I see nothing but great things in your future. Surfing is kept alive by you and County Guard (ret) Ford. Gidget sends her best.

who remembers Bob Moore, another great county lifeguard???

uncle remus said...

Okay , Doggie, how about Dave Ballinger, or something like that? Does Bob Hogan ring a bell.

murphy said...

Yes, I remember Bob very well. Man could he paddle as well! Great shaper in his day too! Henry's the best! He was my mentor!

Well, no use telling you he was on the same Malibu wave as Nick Gabaldon when Nick hit the pier.

Bob Moore pulled my floating, out-cold body out of the water at Doheny after getting hit in the head by some ho'dads board in 1959.

My mom would give me extra money each day and say, Don't forget to buy Bob a soda too.

uncle remus said...

Municipal Doggi, you must be Minnie Mongoose. Right or wrong, and you know who Minnie is in real life, do you not?

Ahem! There were no
hoe-dads in '58. Might you not mean 'greasers'?

murphy said...

Sorry to have to tell you this but, yes there were Ho-dads in '58', because until I started surfing in'57', I was a Ho-dad! used to run with a group of kids and we called ourselves "The Wharf Rats" on the Redondo pier. When my older brother (by 5 yrs) was a teen thats when they were called "Greasers"!

First off vato, it's hoe dad not ho-dad. Maybe you do, maybe you don't. Hoe-Dad was coined by Marty Martell, Tim Kelly, and Mike CLaypool, on their way to Alondra Golf Course. It's a long story and a short pier. Free tip, if you don't already have it, get a copy of 'Dora Lives' by Craig Stecyk and Drew Kampion. Not the one by Rensin.

Perhaps, you, sir, are from another time warp. You were surfboard riding in '57. As you advance in years you will find the first thing to go is your memory. Oh well, there's a State Beach named San Onofre tailored for the senile.

p.s. The name is Anon' Ymous.
