Thanks Dave. Yes the red makes it seem as tho you are correct.

I have probably said it to a hundred people over the years: this is the most amazing group of people I have ever gotten to be part of. I appreciate being allowed to rub shoulders with all of you.

Follow-up: the knee replacement didn't happen. I got in there, was getting ready, but my neck pain was so bad, and new x-rays of it are iffy enough, that we canceled the surgery. They want me to take care of this cervical problem first. So that was a fizzle.

Thanks again to everyone who made this happen!

Well I decided to just sit down and finish it. Nothing too long or super crazy. Just the clips I slapped together. Enjoy!

And of course thanks to Calvin, Andy, and Gdog for the frosty adult beverages after the dive. :partyman:

Also, my deepest apologies to Gdog about putting peanut butter in the cupcake frosting. I am SO sorry!!

No harm, not a morsel touched my lips! Pen, you did a fantastic job. We are all indebted to you. You made it all work!

It was a fantastic day, some great dives in, thank you penopolypants for organizing this and for being my dive buddy. I had a lot of fun and it was great meeting everyone.

Dave: good luck on the surgery and have a swift recovery, knee issues are no fun.

Awesome pics everyone! Thanks everyone for the fun day-it was great to meet everyone in person after reading all the posts over the past couples years. A big thanks to Gdog for taking Doug and me on the dives. It was a great intro to Sund Rock and we were amazed by all the wolfies on both dives. We look forward to more club dives in the future.

Here a few of my shots from under the water.....

There were plenty of wolf eels, I think I saw around 6-8 on each wall

Also plenty of Nudis...

It was a great time, and thank you to my dive buddies, Sashimifencer, and Doug, for being patient with me while I took photos.

Huge thank you to everyone who came, helped and enjoyed themselves - especially our ever dependable Cruise Director penopolypants for womaning the grill, and big buddies for taking little buddies out under their wing. It was great to see everyone again or put faces to names. What a gorgeous day. PS - the last pic is of me doing a totally unnecessary surface swim from the ramp all the way over to the Rock :dontknow:

It was great to see some familiar friends and make some new ones today. Many thanks to penopolypants for all that cooking, and to everyone for all that great food that I got to eat while you were diving! :neener:

I'm having my left knee replaced on Tuesday, so there's no telling when I'll get back in the water. But in my heart, I'm down there with you. Thanks for a terrific day!
