My 11′ Atoll Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board arrived today.
It was beautifully packaged. Work of art.
It has surpassed my expectations. Very well made. You can feel the quality.
Using a ‘Driftsun High Pressure, High Volume Dual Inflate/Deflate‘ pump I pumped it up to 13psi. It was plenty rigid then. Next time I will go higher.
It was stable. As you can see from the video it was WINDY and this was my first time up on a board in probably 3-years (and I had knee surgery 3-months ago). I still did OK.
I was impressed. I had fun. I think this board and I will become great companions.
Next week is going to be COLD and windy. But, I am sure I can find a day to take it out again. Hopefully it will not be as windy.

Teischan (13) is convinced that I timed it as such, and that it is my present to myself. As if I would be that organized or self-serving.
Not going to be using the Board on Sunday. Cold and rain.

Yes, ONLY available in Sri Lanka
from the irrepressible ‘Kapruka.com’.
But, THIS Father’s Day cake really does take the cake!
When I saw it, I cracked up LAUGHING. Only in Sri Lanka. Only by a Sri Lankan.
There is so many things wrong with this cake and so many different levels.
And to exacerbate things, ‘drinking’ is still has social and cultural stigmas and women, in Sri Lanka, are not permitted to buy alcoholic drinks at bars.
So, we now have a cake sporting 4 bottles of “Jack Daniel’s”.
First and foremost, what exactly are YOU trying to tell your Dad. That he is a raving dipsomaniac?
Let’s assume that he is, i.e., he is a raving dipsomaniac. What is he going to think? Do you think he is going to appreciate this cake. I doubt it. It will aggravate him, no end, on two fronts. He doesn’t want the bloody cake, he wants at least one bottle of Jack Daniel’s. So, that will be his first gripe. I don’t want this damn cake, you should have spent the money buying me a good bottle. Then, the second gripe. This really does look like somebody is taking the mickey out of you. Implying that you are a raving dipsomaniac.
Well, I do NOT have to worry. Nobody sends me cakes or makes me any. That I do not eat cake might be a small factor.
But, I am not sure how I will react if I got this cake.
Now, if it also came with 4 bottles of Jack Daniel’s, all could be forgiven. By the time you finished two of the bottles you wouldn’t even remember the cake.
Happy Father’s Day — especially IF you are a raving dipsomaniac. I can relate. Cheers.

This is not comprehensive or even representative. I did NOT set out to take pictures of flowers today. To be honest I was in a rush. I was snapping away at random. It was only when I uploaded the pictures that I realized that I had quite a few in the ‘flowers & fauna’ category. So, decided to do a quick post so I could share them with you. Nothing special here and I will reiterate that I was rushed. SMILE.
