Ripperside Shawn moved to West Virginia a few months ago to work a farm there. We have scouted, drained and cleaned many pools over the past few years. I missed him when he moved away. He drove across country this past week and arrived in Escondido Saturday night.
His son — Gopa — celebrated his birthday and Shawn drove into town. He asked me to set up a pool mission for them. Easy. One of the pools I had set up was a new little Blue Haven kidney. I was pretty stoked to be taking them this weekend. The owner text me yesterday and said they’d be gone all day, so it was off the list. I thought of the Pink Motel. I knew that Shawn and Gopa had never ridden there.
Rick and MRZ drove over and we met up and had the place to ourselves for awhile. Good friends. Fun. No other reason to be doing this…Happiness. Happy Birthday Gopa. Thank you Rick, Shawn, Gopa and MRZ. Excellent. I value your friendship. Skate – Ozzie
