Heading to Fripp

video

We had a fascinating conversation as soon as we hit the road. It started with Biggy correcting me about my earlier post:

Biggy: It's golf CART, by the way--not golf CAR.

TR: You're wrong. Everyone always says golf cart, but it's actually golf car.

Biggy: What even makes you think that?

TR: Someone corrected me once, so I looked it up.

Jack: Someone CORRECTED you for THAT? That's like getting on to someone for saying PIN instead of PEN [emphasis on short e].

TR: True.

Jack: I got in an argument with this kid at school because he heard me say Billy Joel, and he corrected me. He said, "It's Joll." And I said, Jo-w'l.

Biggy: Billy Joll.

Jack: Jo-w'l. Two syllables, but kinda slurred together.

TR: Right. Billy Jo-w'l.

Biggy: Whatever.

Jack: That's my point.

Catching up after couple days of camping. Thanks for great bday message. Planned to call on way back to Denver but phone was dead and, as always, I forgot to put charger in truck.

Wish I was at Fripp, in my Lands End Overstock high neck (due to last pre-cancer removal) old lady tankini that will last until I die. I'll never find a bathing suit that makes me happy, so one that lasts forever is better than nothing. I'd also happily jog/shuffle/walk with you every day at Fripp.
