Haiku # 237:
Left My Beloved Ocean City 1600 On Muir Beach
Gone now forever
Ocean City Bait Caster
Heartbroken right now.
Left it sitting there on the beach, Sunday, after I packed my kayak in the dark. Ugh. I can't express how much I had come to love this reel; in fact I had just recently named it: Ghetto Master. How sad and miserable I am right now. Was really looking forward to rubberlips and pogies... and now its gone.
... kind of hard to write a primal scream. This is my second lost reel this year. The last one was a bit more painful (financially I mean). Don't remember? Let's dig way, way back in the Monkeyface archives to see how history repeats itself... (click here).
This Just In
Okay, I'm the high bidder on a .99 cent Ocean City 1600 on E-bay... $1.75 was my bid. We'll see what happens.
Hmmmm there's a brand new one up there for 35 bucks. I mean, never used, right out of the box it was packed in in 1951. Okay maybe I'll splurge. That's the penalty I deserve for losing the Ghetto Master.
Time to go...
From high above Ocean City. This is a very sad Lombard Of The Intertidal, for the MFN. Signing out.
