    Here I am teaching my surfing pal ,Izzy Esnard aka Piper, some of the nuances of using a draw knife. Me in the black T shirt. I am a year older than Izzy.

    Aya Bern. Good stuff and congrats to you and Pop!! Off topic my RHS rotator cuff is u/s from all the overhead work and my now apparent Menieres thus Amber is up for sale and my sailing days are somewhat suspect. All the best!

    Nice pic Jay. This must have been taken in... I'm guessing, mid eighties? Not because you look so young (you do of course) but because your t sleeves come down to your elbows... ha ha... we were so much more sensible in those days.

    No, picture is only six years old. I was seventy seven then. Izzy was seventy six. Shirt is a Long Tail T from Duluth Trading Co. They offer these very sensible shirts so you can "Just say no to crack". Incidentally Izzy is a surfing legend, right up there with Hobie and Tom Morey.
