Sure it's been foggy and dismal the last couple days but the swimming couldn't be better.  And the morning was brightened considerably by the mystery lady who left a stone cairn on Captn's and my flip flops.  Not to mention an impromptu sojourn to Solly's for post-swim breakfast this morning.

 At the risk of making a complete fool of myself yet again, and with the caveat that my predictions are more wrong than right, I humbly predict that this will be a great swimming weekend.  The current conditions are fantastic and the forecast for the weekend is for warm mostly sunny weather with light onshore winds.  A perfect recipe for some fine swimming, it seems the planets are aligned.

We are hopeful that we can do a longer swim, perhaps even repeating our wonderful Big Bay swim accomplished last Saturday.

Capt'n has a choice tomorrow morning:  He can waste fifty bucks and run the Badgerland Striders half marathon on a hot humid awful day.  Or can he can swim with us for free in the cool refreshing rejuvenating waters of Lake Michigan.  Care to give him any advice?

He sure does. Yes, let us all proceed to give the Cap'n advice:
Cuando amor no es locura, no es amor.
Bed is the poor man's opera.
The anvil fears no blows.
The dog's kennel is not the place to keep a sausage.
There is no economy in going to bed early to save candles, if the result is twins.
Twelve highlanders and a bagpipe make a rebellion.
The church is near, but the way is icy, and yes, the tavern is far, but I will walk carefully.

And finally: Where there is a sea, there are pirates.

A stich in time saves nine.

A rum in the hand is worth two in the bush.

If your head is wax dont walk in the sun.

You dont have to be crazy to work here-we train you!
