I wasn't sure where to put this thread,
Hopefully here is ok.

Marie King, The Bar Manager,of Don the Beachcomber, and JonPaul's(of the Insects and Boardwalkers)Girlfriend was in a really bad accident
last Fri night.
She has had a 4 hour surgery and is in stable condition now.
but it was very scary there for awhile, as she has some bleeding on the brain.
That had stopped and they were able to put her on Pain meds, and go thru with the operation. and she is healing now.

As much as the Tiki crowd likes Marie at Don the Beachcomber.
I am sure that the Surf bands/fans are thankful to her also for having so many bands playing there recently.

here is the thread on Tiki central about it, if you want to read more there.

but Please everybody post yer well wishes and keep her in your thoughts and or Prayers.
She is going to have a long hard healing process.

My thoughts and prayers go out as well. Talked with her a little the last time I was in Don's.

for anybody that is local in so. cal.

Great turnout at Dons tonight to sign the get well card for Marie.
Thanks everybody.
if you couldn't make it,
I left the card, and 3 ring binder with more pages for overflow,
at the bar, just tell them you are a TC person, and you want to sign it for her.
It will be there till Sun Night. after the Bamboo Ben event.
you can sign anytime between now and then.

thanks again everybody,


Why bad things happen to awesome people is beyond me but I do know first hand good things come of it...Look how it's pulling all of us together to pray for both Marie and JonPaul and realizing how lucky we are to have the opportunity to support both of them...Jeff and I talked about providing cards for everyone to sign...Just as Jeff has done at Don's, I will have a card available at the Surfin Sundays gig May 2nd at Pier Plaza 11Am to 5 Pm...When you are suffering there's nothing more uplifting than knowing you are well loved by so many well-wishers...
On behalf of the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum, the surf bands and the surf community we are ever so grateful to Marie and JonPaul for their continued support in booking paying gigs at Don's for the bands who donate their time to play during Surfing Sundays...Everyone in the surf community is praying for a full speedy recovery and great strength for both Marie & JonPaul to get through this ordeal...I will be dedicating our May 2nd concert to both of them as well...
Thanks to Bigtikidude for posting Marie & JonPaul's plight...
Love to all!! Linda aka Momma Queen...xo

I'm a lover not a fighter, a hugger not a handshaker and I take friendships very seriously...Love the life you live, live the life you love. Cool

Thank you so much Linda.

and thanks to all of you for leaving comments,
It means a lot to me.
and I am sure that JP will show her this thread when she is able to be more
