First swim
« on: June 07, 2007, 05:52:56 PM »
We had a hot spell about 2 weeks ago, the kids have been swimming in our pool.  The heater broke down last year so it is not heated.  But did that stop them?  Nope, the water temperature is cold!!!  Not for me yet.  Thought I would submit a picture. Have a wonderful day, great life, love this life you're livin'  Cindi

You would never get me in that cold water.

   I always thought it was invigorating.  Even when I turned blue. :-D
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

It's when you go numb from the waist down that you need to start worrying.  Especially about your future as a parent. . . :shock:

When I was  a kid, my grandfather took me swimming in our pond on one early Easter (end of March) afternoon.  The ice had just broken.  Sometimes he had a cruel sense of humor.   :)
