Smash toe into rock at low tide and break the nail...

Take girlfriends good scissors and roach clip found at The Point....

Carefully remove the broken half of the toe nail...

Get close-up photo for the sake of posterity (and lawyer)...

And a job well done!

Fats Headin To Mexico

Leaving for La Saladita in the morning, hold down the fort and keep those Point guys away from Four Doors.

Murph Report

In place of Murphy, Puttzle here with the Murph Report for today. Surf is small with a south wind. Lots of summer surfers in the wawa. It's chaotic. Thirty to forty-five minute wait to enter the park, starting at 9:00 in the morning. Nothing significant in the next week to 10 days, then we should have another whopper swell from somewhere far away. We'll update in the next Murph Report.

Now for the other part of the Murph Report. Where is Murphy? He seems to be missing. Has anyone seen or heard from him?

Our video guy couldn't make it so we are re-running a previous video. However, it looked much like this. If he doesn't make it tomorrow, it will probably look a lot like this also.

Big Wave Reports - The Scam Exposed

The news reports were full of stories of the 20 to 25 foot waves that were hitting south facing beaches, stories that specifically mentioned San Onofre. I heard, I went, I saw. I waited in line for four hours to get in. There were plenty of people in the water. The waves, however, weren't even 25 inches, let alone feet. It just goes to prove that old adage, believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

It seems that our Murphline cameraman had to get in line like everyone else, so he was late in getting down to the beach. Subsequently he had a less that ideal vantage point to shoot from.

First Tubesteak, Now Gidget!

First, erroneous reports of Tubesteak's demise, now PEOPLE magazine is saying Gidget died of a stroke Tuesday night. But these quotes from PEOPLE magazine -

The "mostly retired actor lived out her days lying in the sun"

"She charmed millions"

"She made so many people happy"

"She was a consummate pro"

"She delighted the crew"

"Gidget always knew where the camera was"

are not about that Gidget. Story and photo here.

Who needs a Harley!

On the farm lived a chicken and a horse, both of whom loved to play together.
One day the two were playing, when the horse fell into a bog and began to sink.
Scared for his life, the horse whinnied for the chicken to go get the farmer for help!
Off the chicken ran, back to the farm. Arriving at the farm, he searched and searched for the farmer, but to no avail, for he had gone to town with the only tractor.
Running around, the chicken spied the farmer's new Harley.
Finding the keys in the ignition, the chicken sped off with a length of rope hoping he still had time to save his friend's life.
Back at the bog, the horse was surprised, but happy, to see the chicken arrive on the shiny Harley, and he managed to get a hold of the loop of rope the chicken tossed to him.
After tying the other end to the rear bumper of the farmer's bike, the chicken then drove slowly forward and, with the aid of the powerful bike, rescued the horse!
Happy and proud, the chicken rode the Harley back to the farmhouse, and the farmer was none the wiser when he returned.
The friendship between the two animals was cemented: Best Buddies, Best Pals.
A few weeks later, the chicken fell into a mud pit, and soon, he too, began to sink and cried out to the horse to save his life!
The horse thought a moment, walked over, and straddled the large puddle.
Looking underneath, he told the chicken to grab his hangy-down thingy and he would then lift him out of the pit.
The chicken got a good grip, and the horse pulled him up and out, saving his life.
The moral of the story?? (Yep, you betcha, there's a moral to this here one!)

“When You're Hung Like A Horse, You Don't Need A Harley To Pick Up Chicks!”

Tubesteak is Alive And Well

Media reports of Tubesteak's demise are in error. The confusion is based upon the death of Oscar G. Mayer, retired chairman of the Madison-based meat processing company that bears his name. He was the third Oscar Mayer in the family that founded Oscar Mayer Foods, which once was Madison's largest private employer. Similar confusion between Tubesteak and Oscar Mayer family members occurred in 1955 when Mayer's grandfather, Oscar F. Mayer, died, and again in 1965 when his father, Oscar G. Mayer Sr., died. Mayer retired as chairman of the board in 1977 at age 62 soon after the company recorded its first $1 billion year.

The surfline cameraman was told he could not cut the line this morning so he could go in and video tape San Onofre for their Surfline surf report. He had earlier in the week talked the guard into letting him in before anyone else making her think he was doing a great service for the Beach and the State Park service. He didn't tell her he was payed by Surfline for the video and did no service for San Onofre at all.

Newest Surf Product from EmEx

Prototype test rider Joe heading for the surf to demo the new EmEx leash.

Notice how the leash stays tangle-free!

As seen here, the leash floats effortlessly behind the rider and stays out of his way. The guys outside wanted to buy one after watching Joe's demo.

Pay parking is coming to popular surf beach
State announces it will charge $10 per car at Trestles lot at south end of San Clemente.
The Orange County Register

5 Decades of free parking at one of America's premier surfing beaches, Trestles, is about to end.Because of California's budget crunch and state parks' efforts to raise revenue, San Onofre State Beach will soon begin charging cars $10 a day to park in Trestles' 84-space public lot at El Camino Real and Cristianitos Road."It could be (in) a couple of days. It could be a couple of weeks," said Rich Haydon, Orange Coast District parks superintendent."We have a lot of costs at San Onofre … we have to have some cost recovery there," Haydon said.Pay parking could take the form of an entry kiosk, an "iron ranger" collection device or, down the line, a pay machine, Haydon said.It's also possible that state parks may raise the day-use fee of $10 per car. Haydon said there has been talk of it but nothing definitive.Charging for parking in the lot could put a premium on free curbside parking spaces available nearby along Cristianitos Road, El Camino Real and San Clemente residential streets.El Camino Real has about 45 free spaces along the stretch in front of the Trestles lot. Cristianitos Road has about 15 free spaces next to the I-5 Freeway, plus an additional stretch of free parking inland, past a "no parking" zone.Years ago, San Clemente imposed a 2-hour limit on parking on residential streets near Trestles so surfers wouldn't take up the spaces all day when the surf was pumping.

The Three Dwarfs: One day three midgets were sitting around the table drinking tea and having crumpets.The first midget says to the other two, "You know, I think I have the smallest hands in the world." He continues, "And I think I should go down the Guinness Book or World Records and try to get in the book!"The second midget replies with, "You know, now that you mention it, I probably have the smallest feet in the world. I think I'll go with you and try to get into the record book, too!"The third midget joins in with, "I'm going too because I think I have the smallest penis in the world. Let's go!"So the midgets set off to the offices of the Guinness Book of World Records. When they arrive, the first midget is called in and is gone for awhile. Finally he comes out very excited. "I made it! They measured my hands, and sure enough they are the smallest in the world. I'm in the record book!!"The second midget is called in, and soon he comes out very excited. "I made it too! They measured my feet and sure enough, they are the smallest in the world. I'm in the record book, too!!"The third midget goes in, is gone a very long time, so long that his friends became concerned. Finally he appears with a rather forlorn look on his face"What's the matter his friends asked. The third midget responds with "Who the hell is FATS FLANNIGHAN?!?!!"
