Right Rail Rumpus Room: Is it May yet?

Howdy, rowdy rumpusers!  

I'm back from vacation in Southern California and admit I hardly checked in to the Sox scores while I was away; accessible and handy At Bat app be damned.  Having reviewed scores upon my return, I think I made the right decision to take a break from all the stresses in my life.  April White Sox baseball included.

Knowing I'd be in Los Angeles for the week, I asked my dear surfer friends in Huntington Beach to shape me a new surfboard that I could pick up while I was down there.  For the cost of materials alone, my friend created a short board based on my requested dimensions and artwork.  

I paddled the beauty below for the first time into the lineup and head-high waves at the Huntington Pier on Saturday.  This was also my first session in "warm" waters, having only surfed in Washington and Oregon prior to now.  A special day, indeed.  I hope the majority of the reading audience will enjoy the art I chose for the board.

In other news, yesterday was the release of the Thao Nyguyen and Mirah album, and I can't recommend it enough.  I had already put in a good 20 listens from the free stream on NPR, but I woke up yesterday and downloaded it right away.   Here is the link to the free NPR listen, though if you're a fan of Thao at all, I say go straight to purchasing the album.
