Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ

It’s a good thing we blasted a big hole in the ozone layer, otherwise we wouldn’t have these spectacular out-of-season afternoons. 63 degrees? A day before December? In the northeast? It’s a gift!

We visited the boardwalk in Asbury Park. It got pretty busy as the afternoon progressed, but nothing like in July. 7-Year Old Daughter brought her scooter and I brought my skateboard. We cruised up and down the boardwalk. She yelled at me again about not having a helmet. I’m Mr. Bad Example.



3-Year Old Daughter is still too young for any mode of transport other than her two feet. She demanded equal time so I carried my skateboard.


Did you hear the cops finally busted Madame Marie
for tellin’ fortunes better than they do?

Yes, there really was a Madam Marie.

Asbury Park was once the playground of Presidents but this is all that’s left. It’s okay. I like it just fine.

  1. You are such a kid at heart! How many kids can say they skateboard with thier dad? Memories they will never forget-pricelessMT

  2. MT: I am astonishingly immature. It’s a fact!Daisy: I wish I had taken a better pic. It’s actually a small kiosk on the boardwalk where she use to tell fortunes. That pic makes it look like some graffiti on an anonymous cement wall.Map: It all came together for one afternoon.

  3. Nurse: Actually, this took place on Sunday. I took a timeline liberty.Sid: That’s what’s so astounding! I should have hung up my skateboard months ago.Jeff: I do not know the Fastlane. Probably has something to do with having two kids. Poindexter: Welcome! Great memories for me, too.Nurse: I think you’re fabulous. But you’ve always known that.Gnu: Plus, they muss my hair.
