Crash Saves the Swim

Last Swim: Thursday 6PM
Water Temp: 70ish (Capt'n-o-meter still on the fritz)

Water Clarity: Good

Indeed, it was an exceptional evening for a swim. Sunny skies, warm air & water temps and a very enthusiastic crew. But there was a problem....despite The Patriarch and I having a considerable stash of Killepitsch at home, neither of us brought a bottle to the beach. What were we going to do? Who would break the unfortunate news to the crew? Surely there would be dissension in the ranks!

In times of crisis great leaders leap to action....and that's what The Patriarch did. With a crazed look in his one eye and his whiskers twitching The Patriarch whipped out his cell phone and called the Calvary....aka Crash. In a mere blink of an eye...or the time it took Diablo and I to swim to sewer pipe and back...Crash was standin' there on the beach with an ice cold bottle of the finest brew of Pitsch. The crew was delighted and the swim was saved....all thanks to Crash!

BREAKING NEWS! Kahuna and The Patriarch have officially decreed that Friday's morning swim is officially a "Solly's Breakfast" Swim. Everyone is invited to join them at Solly's for an exceptionally tasty home cooked breakfast at Solly's following the morning swim.
