    A man of Aloha, Lord “TallyHo” Blears was, larger than life; with giant noise and cauliflower ears! Legendary!
    Also a master story teller; here is my recounting of one tail he spun for me while watching the summer sunset at the Royal Hawaiian over Mai Tia’s, with my friend Clinton and Lee (Mrs. Blears).
    ————
    In the Fifties someone stole Lord Blears brand new surfboard. He put out the word that he was looking it. Soon he received a call from a friend from a surf shop in Waikiki!
    “TallyHo, there is a guy trying sell me your board!”
    “Keep him there, I am coming!”
    The shop owner, fearing what may unfold next, called the police.
    Upon Lord Blears arrival he quickly identified his board and asked to have his property returned to him. The thief insisted the board was his!
    Lord Blears did not have a receipt, so the police said he could not recover the board, explaining that:
    “Possession represented nine tenth of the law.”
    Lord Blears thought for a moment, walked towards the door, then turned and ran full speed for the thief, leaping into his world famous ”Flying Kick”, smashing the thief into the wall, knocking him out cold.
    The cops stood speechless as Lord Blears rose to his feet and grabbed his board.
    “Possession is nine tenths of the law, right officers”
    “Yes Lord Blears, possession is nine tenths of the law!”

    Lord TallyHo’s best quote ever: “Never Give Up!”
    The Duke said: “The Best Surfer is the One Having The Most Fun!
    So the next time you stand up on a wave exclaim: “TallyHo!”
    It will be the best ride of your life!!!!!
    Aloha & Mahalo!
