Lost email?

 Anyone who has written me an email at account harryflashman23@gmail.com, and has not received a response, please retransmit the message.

I am almost sure I lost some emails when I tried to open the "social" email box. I'm not sure what happened, but it looks like several messages just disappeared. They aren't in the "trash", so I am at a loss as to explain it.

  1. I wrote you back in 2012 if you thought the Russians might invade Crimea, and you never responded.

    Pretty prescient on my part don't you think? LOL

    1. Russell, I'm sure sorry I missed your comment. Yes, you had it pegged. I didn't follow all that and really didn't pay much attention to it until things seemed to be getting out of hand.

  2. I have a lot of missing emails. I will get a second email from someone, mentioning a first email. I don't know why that happens.

    1. In this case, I opened the mail box, read my "regular" emails. Then I opened the "social" mail box, read the first message, but when I went back there weren't any more. I could have confused the "regular" mailbox with the social mailbox but I don't think so. I don't see why Google feels compelled to add all these bells and whistles to people's email account arbitrarily, without asking them first.

    going surfing this mornin'

    surfed yesterday for about two hours. Banged out one really good wave that reconnected all the way to the beach. Don't worry, waves were only three to five foot. What we call waist to chest in size. The 12 foot tall stuff are the big ones down here. Water is up to 77-78 degrees and feeling real trophical. This stuff is like lap swimming for two hours. Great cardio workout and low impact.

    I really like my new longboard (one I got last year) best board I have yet'

    Just for any historical perspective. On the movie Apocalypse Now, the surfboard used in that movie was a 8'6 Yater Spoon model. Years ago I had copy made by another manufactuer of that board in a 9'6 length and it did not work in the Gulf Coast. Too much rocker, or bend in the board. That shape's better for California waves.

    Yater did produce a "Charlie Don't Surf" model complete with camo paint job that was a commemorative take off of the board used in Apocalypse Now. I would have bought one, except they were $2000 each.

    Down here in South Texas, someone enterprising person came up with "Taliban Don't Surf" stickers right after 911. They were everywhere on cars and trucks on the beach.

    1. CC, wouldn't you be happier in Hawaii? I was there for several months in 1973, in the summer. Surfing was the be all and the end all. I never tried it, for fear of the Tiger Sharks everybody was talking about. Also, that was the first time I had really been around the ocean much and I wasn't too sure about it.

  4. I just lost one I know I wrote to a friend. At my age it's scary because you begin to wonder if you actually wrote it or just imagined you did. I have g-mail too, shame on them scary old ladies and losing emails all over the place. Anyway, it was comforting to know this happened to you too, but sorry for the inconvenience.

    1. Inger, I share your concern about memory. At first, I thought maybe I imagined it. But I have a friend who uses a different email moniker when he writes, and I am sure I saw that in the "social" email box when I opened it the first time.

      When you get older, you do have to worry about things like that. You are not alone, my any means!

  5. I meant to say: scaring old ladies.

  6. Harry - this happens to me all the time. i hate the new changes to gmail and i don't understand the "social" thing....awwww well. i haven't had any probs with people getting angry with me for not responding to an email....most people just send another and ask if i received the first. when i tell them no, they just re-send.

    what worries me most is that this time of the year i am so busy and yet have to keep trying to keep posts on our blog, answer comments there, answer comments on my fave blogs (some slip by the wayside and that bothers me), and then try to answer email!!! it's a full-time job - bahahahahaha! but one that i greatly enjoy!

    your friend,
    kymber

  7. Kymber,

    Sometimes it does get difficult to keep up. Especially since the days are longer so you can work outside more. There are also a lot more things to do in the long warm summer days. In winter, it always seems cold and dark, so I tend to be inside more and on the computer more.

    I just don't want anyone to think I ignored them. I know I would feel badly if I wrote to a friend and they didn't reply, and I am not a particularly sensitive individual.
