Wow....what a difference 24 hours can make!  24 hours ago the Kru's streak of 24 consecutive days of swimming in the lake nearly came to an end when both the Patriarch-o-Meter 101 and the Captn's Macho Meter 2000 failed to reach 49 degrees.   Weren't it for one of Showgirls best performances in recent memory our streak surely would have came to an end!  (Rumor has it she'll be back in action Monday morning....so be sure to come out and hear first hand how she saved the day!)

Today, by comparison, the water temp was a whopping 20 degrees warmer...with some spots surely being even warmer than that!  Unfortunately our rapid return of warm water did come at the expense of enduring a few white capped but playful sea serpents during our swim this afternoon.  But with Blondie volunteering for the role of Bay Watch Beach Babe / Life Guard our Kru of all male swimmers showed absolutely no reluctance to walk the plank.  Under Blondie's watchful eye the Kru returned no worse for the wear....which likely could be attributed to her keen inspection of the Kru as they prepared for battle. ...or was it that she was only keenly inspecting one Kru member in particular?

My husband is so concerned with finding movers in Michigan he hasn't taken anytime to think about what we are going to do when we get there. He loves to swim and always loves to compete in races. I am going to forward this to him so he knows!
