In Honor of Dr. Ralph

There was another preventable tragedy yesterday at Old 'Nofre.
An elderly fellow did his surf, pulled his board from the water, walked up the berm, became disorientated and was dead before he hit the ground. People over 40 should be aware if you surf prepare to meet your Maker because your heart isn't ready for 180 beats a minute. Please don't use that soggy cliche, "I'm gonna' surf till I die." Because, you will.

He died the way he would have wanted to go.

That's Jake, cause the Surfee Club will program a beautiful farewell for the deceased, paddle out and all, with a bunch of vines signifying a Haw'n motif, but would it not be wonderful if Corky did a column on the recently departed. What is puzzling is BIGKOOK was right ther when the older feller passed away.

It was the 2nd Sunday in June 1983, Father's Day. The phone rang I picked it up and on the other line a voice asked'Is Terry there'? I said 'yes' to whom I speaking with? He said Miki! I then traipsed down the corredor to The Great Ones room. I told The Steak Dora is on the phone and he needs a ride he's stuck on PCH in Newport. The TOObs instructed me to call every resource I had to get Da Cat. I called the Mole, rang up Goat even Dewey Deluxe but they all had the same excuse! Only did 'Da Grinch' Gallagher pull through. This before Dora had a Scooter Boy as a friend! B.K. was'nt around yet!

MOE, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.

Paralyzed for Life said...

With all the stroke victems and heart attacks, and coronary occlusions on the unpaved dirt road, what became of the defibrillator on which the Club spent a king's ransom. Sal Geeze heart stopped on the way to Bldg. #4, but they didn't know where the Club hid them. Someone said they were using them to inflate bicycle tires for club members.

No Point said...

Knock him if you will, at least Murphy had enough sense to sell his boards and stay out of the water before the big one hit.

The North County Times reports that the surfer was Charles Solon Todd Jr., aged 63, of Aliso Viejo.

I suffered a stroke at San Onofre while sitting in my car at Old Man's. It was a debilitating episode that I hope and pray never happens to any of you. My stroke took place in Bldg. #5 at Dogpatch. I fell to the floor, and like Zsa Zsa couldn't get up. I screamed for help , a voice from outside said there should be a defibrillator in there. Hey, fe was a real wise guy, there weren't no nothing in there. They should have a test before anybody can join that club they they have down there.Also, they should raise the dues to get rid of the riff-raff that hang around down there all day long. Everyone has either a heart attack, a massive stroke,
drinking problem, can't swim, or do nothing all day long. If I hadn't coughed up over a hundred scoots for a annual pass, I'd tell that whole bunch down there to KMMFA.
