I'm thinking about it.  Will be cold starting in the morning.  Time to test out warm clothing again.  Water about 50 deg.

   Yes, I can picture the scene at the Third Beach Parking Lot on Sunday. A crowd, estimated in the tens of thousands, impatiently waits for the arrival of their Hero...some have braved the severe weather and slept overnight on the cold, hard ground to secure a better vantage point.
   Then suddenly, as the sun rises in the east toward Sakonnet, that magical moment arrives. A formidable armada of limousines cruise into the parking lot. But all eyes are on the particularly fancy limousine, the one with the kayak on top. The older fans, tears streaming down their faces, clutch photos of their Hero in one hand, and a pen or marker in the other. Young children gleefully sing in delight. Babies burp and coo with satisfaction. Young men bow down, saying "we are not worthy!!!", and young women swoon. Jupiter aligns with Mars, the moon is in the 7th house, all is right with the world. Then all turns silent...the door of the limousine opens...and out comes...Ricky B's representative saying "Ricky B. couldn't make it..."   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( ::) :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :

P.S.  I know, I know, I have far too much time on my hands!  ::)

Thanks for the laugh out loud Tony - or is it a premonition?

    Well, it may be wild, it may be reckless, but I'll be there with you at 10AM.

Wow!  Tony's hysterically funny description of tomorrow morning is SO vivid and exciting that I am tempted to be there in disguise just to see the frenzy.  But, alas, it looks like tomorrow will be a leaf raking day for me (at an undisclosed location, of course, to avoid causing any further disturbances).  My apologies to any autograph hounds.

Enjoy!

Yes, It is 10 AM. tomorrow.
Too bad about Ricky B. not showing... I thought when you are famous
there will always be groupies around who want to rake your leaves.

Change of plans, don't wait for me. Rick is letting me rake his leaves!! And no, that is not a euphemism.
