Whit received his birthday present a week early from me– a brand new Loaded longboard (skateboard). Ever since Jonathan Ivey rode around the little town of Black Mountain on his, Whit has been itching for one. And then, our friend Tony here in Gwangju also has one he brought from Canada.
So this weekend, Whit finally joined the longboarding ranks. He and Tony have even started a club — The Gwangju Longboarding Society–though I tried to explain that I think GLS stands for something else quite different. They didn’t care.
Also, this weekend, we went to Tony and Caroline’s cocktail party–a chance to get all fancied up in our nicest clothes and drink fancy drinks. It was a great time had by all. And since Whit and I never seem to get dressed up, we took a few pictures on our way over there.
