gypsy jacket ambassador

i think ambassador is the new name for the surfers term, "SPONOED". anyways I got me a gal, who says she'll put a gypsy jacket on her beloved fish. here she is below...

I know, total babe right!? I may get in trouble for putting this on, so enjoy it while its up. You see, Alex, fondly known as Al Bear, hacks into my phone every now and then, to cover my wall paper and background images with her beautiful selfies...its all I had.

Alex Kent is certainly a gypsy of the sea, but she's so much more to me. She's an explorer of the heart and mind, a gypsy of the grandest kind. A friend, a sister and a warrioress.

not bad for 64 years

I have a regular customer, his name is Allan and he is 64. It seems strange, calling him regular, but 3 covers over 3 years is regular in my game...he lives in another country but sends really, like really, lengthy emails about his adventures. and there are heaps of them. he apologises for the lengthy replies and tells me the problem with getting old is that once you start you never stop. i dont agree with him.
he always asks for crazy colours "the more garish the better", and responds sometimes with a poem or two. all these things pretty much make him my favorite customer, and I hope one day I can meet him in real skin, in the ocean.

mustard, brown and yellow: a combination I sometimes love just a little too much
