Have you ever wondered how that agitator Diablo manages to stay out of trouble?  Saturday we found out - Mrs. Diablo bails him out.   On Saturday he and I were having a grand time swimming south and before we knew it we were 3/4 of the way to Big Bay.  We decided to head all the way to Big Bay and along the way Monica joined us.  One problem.  It was too far to swim back, and we had no gear or no plan on how to return.  It would have been a long barefoot walk.  But Diablo did his best to look pitiful and a lady on the beach let him use her cellphone.  And somehow he convinced his wife to pick us up and drive us back to Klode.  She's way too good for him if you ask me.

I can't make it tonight but would like to swim Tuesday at 6pm if others are game.
