I Have a Friend!

Next Swims:  Tuesday June 30th, Wednesday July 1st, Thursday July 2nd, 6AM very day

Also:  A full moon swim Thursday July 2nd at 8:15PM at Big Bay Beach, two blocks north of Hampton on Lake Drive.  On some maps it is shown as "Buckley Bay" or "Back Bay".  The full moon rises over the lake at 8:54PM.  The reason we are going to Big Bay rather than our usual swim spot at Klode is that Klode (a village park) closes at 9PM whereas Big Bay (a county park) closes at 10PM, and we'll have more time to view (and howl at) the rising moon.  Afterwards we can go to Three Lions Pub only a few blocks away.

Last Swim:  Monday June 29th 6AM
Water Temp: 58
Waves:  Calm
Water Clarity: Excellent
Crew: Mr. Anonymous, Showgirl, Little Fish, Nivens McTwist, Diablo, Kahuna, Capt'n, Patriarch
Wetsuit/Skin: 5/3

Thank you Mark Zuckerberg!  You have saved me from dying a lonely embittered isolated old man.  Having led a desolate facebookless existence for 66 years I have finally joined Facebook and have my first friend.  Capt'n has announced to the World Wide Web that I am his friend!  And I always thought it was just the Killepitsch talking.   Oh, the tears of joy and happiness that cascaded down my face when I received "Capt'n has accepted your friend request" message.

Mark, having transformed my life, will you be my friend too?  And, by the way, where is the "enemies" feature?  I have a long list of people I want to send a "I hate you, you worthless piece of s**t" and it seems to me that Facebook would be perfect for that.

Hi there, is your swim group open to newcomers? I'm an experienced open water swimmer looking to swim some mornings (or evenings) while staying in Milwaukee!

Any chance we'll add evening swims? 6 am is good for swimming, but very good for sleeping. Kate and I may be there next Monday morning (but don't hold me to it).

Thanks! And, I think I'll back a wetsuit and try to join you next week.

OneShannon: Yes. Please join us when you are in town. Info regarding the group and our swims in general are posted in the links on the right side of the blog. Details regarding the last swim, and the next scheduled swims, are in the daily posts. The swims are always at Klode Park Beach, unless the daily post indicates otherwise (like a few days this week, when Klode is closed for fireworks). Cheers. If you have any other questions, feel free to post them in the comments section, and one of us is likely to to respond. -- Kahuna
