I've been stopping by the new record store on my way home from work now and then. They had some magnets for sale a few weeks ago, so of course I asked about FZ magnets. The store owner said he had "a guy in Ohio" that makes them and he would see if he can make any with FZ albums. Today, I stopped in and they had 57 of them!

We'll see if they can make any of the albums not shown!

COOL!

I spent half an hour looking for my crochet needle. Turned out I'd tucked it in my pony tail.

Surfing lesson was "ok" but the conditions were seriously lousy. Giant shore break and a rip tide from hell. My shoulders have been screaming "you bastard !" since yesterday.

That's pretty adventurous. If I were to take a lesson to learn something new I'm not even sure what it would be.

long board surfing surfing. Although what I did was an abstract version of actual surfing. It was more like man trying to survive in hostile environment.

Went to "see" the optometrist.
New glasses won't make any difference.
Have to go in for surgery, on my left eye, due to cataracts.
Really looking forward to this.

It was the same old Isaac shit you post when you make your infrequent visits to this forum, so it's nothing remotely interesting.

But I guess it's better than the endless threads that are only designed to boost post totals.

Good luck. It sounds kind of scary but cataract surgery is pretty routine these days and with good results. That's easy for me to say as it's not my eye.

Way back in my ebay addiction days in a burst of inspiration I got 100+ Zappa fridge magnets from an online fräulein in Germany, enough to completely cover the then new'n'trendy stainless double door fridge. My shallow partner at the time couldn't bear the thought of one of the shiny jewels in her kitchen being obscured by tacky fridge magnets. After a short sharp exchange of expletives, all but one (currently the Apostrophe cover) were exiled to the front and side of the beer fridge in the man cave. There are a bunch of album covers, official up to Trance-Fusion and a stack of boot's, heaps of the usual posters and Frank promo pic's, I kept buying them till I ran out off room..... :wink:
