no bloody idea you old mence!!!! - to the senior kook surfing at barrenjoey, late anzac morning.perhaps in your advanced age you hearing isn't so good and thats why inspite of repeated calls you dropped in on me. maybe its your prerogative as a near-pensioner to deny that you were in any way to blame. it is also quite possible that it was your failing eye sight that led you to say that a severely torn earlobe (courtesy of the tip of your board) was a "little scratch" before you paddled off without further concern.whatever excuses you may have, i just want to say thank you for the 3 hours wasted at mona vale hospital,the 4 stitches in my ear and the prospect of 2 weeks out of action. karma will catch up with you buddy
