Aloha TC and Beyond!

For those of you who are going to miss the Laid Back Luau at the Cove on the 20th, here's another chance to talk story with the surviving daughters of Eli Hedley, the Original Beachcomber.

August 27th from Noonish to 2 or so, at Bamboo Ben 712 Yorktown ave. Huntington Beach, Ca. 714-960-1860.

They will be re releasing How Daddy Became a Beachcomber, a new auto biography by Bungy and signing a few family pictures of the past.

Cold pineapple juice and treats will be on hand.

Re; Bamboo Ben's on 27th!
Ol' Bamboo Ben forgot to mention the most important Book for all you Tiki Lovers! It is "Eli Hedley Beachcomber 1943 Catalog Reprint" with all the creations he used to make from driftwood etc, and lots of pictures of his hand carved TIKIS!!!

Also! My Book is called "View From The Top of the Mast" with my sailing adventures throughout the South Pacific!
See ya either at the Cove (Royal Palms) on 20th..or.. at Bamboo Bens on 27th! Yipee!!! Auntie Bungy

Aloha Bungy!
For those of us who unfortunately can't make it down to meet you at the book signing, will your books be available at our local bookstore (Barnes & Noble, etc) or on Amazon.com? I would really like to get a copy of them! I have loved your stories and can't wait to hear more adventures of your life. And also, see all the amazing carvings by Eli Hedley.

Ben/Bungy,

I got an orginal copy of "How Daddy Became a Beachcomber" a while back from a book collector. It's a wonderful book and one of my favorites. I've probably read it 30 times. What a wonderful life it must have been. I would love to get signed copies of the new books when they are available!

You know, I've been waiting for "How Daddy..." for over 2 years now.
I was on the list when it was getting passed around and yet... I still don't have it.

I also want to purchase your book bungy.

Help a braddah out, Boombam.

I was lucky enough to be able to read it, and I would love a copy of the re edition book. How is it going to be sold ? Are you going to sell the book through TC ?

Auntie Bungy,

I received the books Monday. I'm about a quarter of the way through View from the Top of the Mast! It's wonderful. It's nice to see your perspective on events in comparison to Mare's. I'm glad you didn't just rewrite the same story about the first part of your family's life. Very well done!!! I should be finished with the first reading this weekend. The catalog is wonderful too but I don't get the horses....I guess they were popular at the time. I would have loved to have seen the house at White Point and the store in Hollywood back in the day!

Scotty
