    so looking forward to seeing him in a couple of weeks for some more lessons and straight talk--he has a great emphasis on footwork and movement under the bag which i hope will be our focus this time--he is indeed a really good man--grins dd

          I had the pleasure and privilege of spending 1 -1/2 hours with Ernie while in FL recently. He invited me to hit with him on his home-made platform in his garage. What a super bagger and great individual.

            Glad you got to meet E.O. Sorry I was not home when you called.

                Joe, I made an conscious effort to wear that shirt. Looks good, huh?

                I was in FL last week visiting my brother; he's about an hour away from Sarasota. I left a message at the YMCA where EO works, and he called me back. I met him at his house.

                I'll PM you his info.

                    Hey Alan, Ernie was excited when I told him I met you and had attended the gathering in Keyport. As soon as he knew that, he said let's call Alan.

                    He is a great guy, with a storied background. He told me all about his experiences and his trip over seas - showed me his scrapbook too!

                    It was great to spend some "hanging and banging" time with him. He's quite a colorful character (I mean that in the most respectful way).

                    Too bad we missed you that morning.

                    Za,
                    I think the only one that would agree with that statement is my wife (and I'm not too sure about her).

                      Too bad you couldn't get him to make a Pizza for you. When I stayed at his house he made pizza one night for dinner. It was awesome.
