    That surfboard thing was just out of left field. With it being that spontanious, it was more funny! But the whole Jessica Alba thing leading into No Doubt was funny to read. Knowing you guys too, I can see you and Redgek saying that to each other in person.

    More info about me. My mother gave birth to me at 16 and after I was born, My grandfather and grandmother took care of me since day 1. When my grandfather retired in 2000, he wanted to adopt me so that I would be his son legally. He is the only father figure in my life and he was so cool with me doing what I do. He always wondered why I liked star wars so much but always asked if I needed any money or anything to get what I needed for my collection that I started in November of last year. One time, I had a marshall cab in layaway at Guitar Center and I owed $150 of it. I went home from school and he said that I needed to get his newspaper out of the truck. When I went to the truck, there was a big box with that Marshall cab. He was so spontanious at times and this was one of those. In a way, I never knew my real father but he filled in that spot perfect. He is pretty much my hero in so many ways.

    Sad thing though is that today at 7:30 am, he past away. I will miss him. He died from Lung cancer. He lived a year and a half after he found out. It was nice to know that he saw me graduate this year.

    That is such a kool story about your DAD! You were & are soooo lucky to have had him as your DAD. He was a true dad in my book for that, just alone.

    Always treat him as if he was your real dad because, that is how he treaded you. As his SON.

    I'm so so sorry about the loss. Always remember, even though he's not here physically here he'll always be looking after you.
