Aloha shirt, shorts and slippahs will get you in the door at McKenna's. Of course if your legs are white as a ghost and haven't seen the sun since last year you should probably wear slacks or jeans so as not to blind anyone dining without shades!

I have ten-year old Teva stripes on my feet. Never really noticed it until this Thanksgiving when I went back to St. Louis and my brother thought I had some sort of odd vitiligous hypopigmentation...or vice versa depending on which part of the Rorschach sandal stripe you’ve noticed.

Nothing to worry about, Webster.

I'll be happy to give you a ride. Laguna Beach is on the way from Dana Point.

You can even bring your wife or SO if you have one.

I'm bringing mine, so there'll be a number of non-techies to enjoy a conversation about things other than Macs eye rolling smiley

I was just looking at McKenna's lunch menu to see what I might order and found a selection that was staggering.

So many choices and so reasonable!

If you haven't checked it out yet you should look it over.

I haven't given up just yet.

After all, I did offer Webster a free ride to the Lunch smiling smiley

It would be a shame if he doesn't come, since he lives just a skip and a jump up PCH from me.

Why don't you guys write him a PM and see if you can twist his arm a little? He seems a little shy sad smiley

Let him know that we'd really like him to come.

Punkindrublik, right now the Members confirmed for the Lunch are:

Carm
Effin Haole
Punkindrublik
Pat
Carthaigh
MikeF
N-OS X-tasy!
GeneL
Harbourmaster
RgrF

There will also be some wives/so's and Harbourmaster mentioned that one or two of his teenage kids who "lurk" on the Forum may come along as well.

Also, there's a chance that haikuman may make it over from Hawaii. Keep your fingers crossed because he hasn't gotten back to me yet.

No word from bfd or anyone besides you from San Diego :^ (

As I said above, I'm really disappointed about Webster J. Duck but what else can I do?

The bottom line is that we will have an excellent turnout. I'm absolutely sure that the Lunch will be a super event.

We'll have lots of fun with the blind raffle and something else I'm putting together as a surprise.

BTW it's N-OS X-tasy!'s birthday tomorrow smiling smiley Get ready for the "Obligatory Birthday Celebration!"

See you all soon,

GeneL

41 tomorrow. Ugh.

Many thanks to Gene and Roger for the early observation. I appreciate the thought, guys. smiling smiley

I'm off to Mexico tomorrow to ride in Saturday's Rosarito-to-Ensenada bike ride. This will be my third consecutive time in the ride. I finished the first time, not the second (the 15 or so shots of tequila I had the afternoon/evening before had much to do with that). Will DEFINITELY finish this time, and with any luck I have a dinner date with a Mexican cutie I met last time I was down there.

Thanks again for the birthday wishes!



It is what it is.

It sounds like it's going to be a great event. Too bad I'm going to be the only Southern, Southern Cal participant, I know there's others here but at least I can represent!

Happy B-Day N-OS! N-OS and I were at the original get together at LAX. You've got big shoes to fill Gene, but you're doing a great job!

Punkindrublik, if you know anyone else who lives in the SD area why don't you drop them a PM? Perhaps they haven't been following the Forum for a while.

I didn't realize that the MR UGLA Dinner at Tam wasn't the first get together. How could I have missed the one to which you referred? Details?

As to the job I'm doing, tell me when it's over smiling smiley

See you soon!

Gene, the other get together wasn't a MR UGLA, it was done through the other place. pRON was flying though LAX on his way to the orient. In attendance was pRON, Greg The Dogsitter, N-OS, Marc(I think he had a different handle here) and I

Unfortunately I don't know of anyone else other than bfd from San Diego by name.

What a great idea.

Based on the great response and the highly recommended location, I'm sure that this get together will live in our memories for a long time.

Don't forget to "plain wrap" your donations for the "blind" raffle!

As it stands right now, I expect that there will be around fifteen guests at the Lunch including wives, SO's and family members.

If you think of anything else, any other ideas etc, please send me a PM or email me at mr.socalug@cox.net

No, there's this thread I just came upon on the bottom of page 188 (at least until it rolls over):
[forums.macresource.com]

It has 2166 views. But it was someone padding it. I'd put the link but if you click on it, it gets larger.

Of course, we wouldn't pad this thread...

And I didn't really check out the other 180 pages...

You were absolutely right, Harbourmaster. I didn't get to bed until 4 AM.

Good news!

I received our "Commemorative Name Badges" in the mail yesterday, all the way from Hamburg, NY. They look great!

Our thanks to Dennis R, who made them for us as a donation to our Lunch. It was a very generous gesture smiling smiley

Just now Mavis is "plain wrapping" our donations for the "mystery" raffle. I'm sure there'll be some surprises on Saturday.

See you all very soon.
