Gianna, D & I went and had a healthy breakfast then stopped at Ron Jon in Clearwater Beach. Gianna had mentioned she wanted to surf! She was really motivated by "Soul Surfer," knew I competed decades ago, and played on that. She was shocked when I followed up and told her she had just motivated me to get back on the board and I wanted to do it with her! She was excited. I think it's by the fact that "GrandmaDiDi" and I will not blow her off and always test the waters. I will never extinguish a dream, especially when it comes to my Granddaughter. D's the same way. G gives us too many signs of brilliance and we want to give her opportunities to check things out! And speaking of checking things out...


My lil' Surfer Girl!

Here's the shocker! I spoke to some of the staff, hit it off with them, then talked to the manager after seeing a "notice!" I came home and applied for a staff position at Ron Jon's! Gianna was so excited she told me to tell Mommy what I had done. I told Mommy, "I get the job, she gets the board!" I'm also checking out the local surfer's swap meets they have in Treasure Island at St Pete Beach! It would be awesome to surf with "The G!" Hmmm...wonder if "GrandmaDiDi" might wanna catch some "tasty waves!"

    How fun - I have a couple of friends that surf locally - they also wind surf and kite surf. So you will have company.

Will someone clue "Timmy" that I'm not a "wild woman" despite the fact that I will occasionally crossdress at certain appropriate races!

Robin, D & I were just talking about that today. It's good to work balance and control. I know the Gulf targets for fair riding but it's hit or miss. I can always go up to the panhandle to catch waves or from St Augustine to the Space Coast to the Gold Coast as well. It'll be an adventure in any case!

    Did you guys go over to Surf Style and ride the surf?? It is in the building with the Guy Harvey mural on it on Clearwater Beach.

My niece saw it on groupon one day and wanted me to go check it out for her so when she visited we could go surfing. Unfortunately, she wasn't going to be in town before the groupon expired.

But I gotta say, it looked kind of cool!

    How exciting for you and all. Your Gianna is so lucky to have you and D as young grand parents living so close by, enjoying life.

    Your cute little family (G-daughter and all) just give me tingles. That little Gianna is so lucky to have outstanding grandparents. I always felt blessed in having so many of mine for so long... and you get so much of the fun of life from them! You're doing your jobs, Monty and D! Spark on!
