    Really? Just three? That really must have been painful. Though I think extreme cold is just a little less horrible than extreme heat.

    Well, it makes you want to swim really, really fast. I recall one day jumping into a river in Yosemite that was coming off the snowpack. Didn’t breathe once going across. Then had to turn around and swim back.

    Rosalyn, do you know what a garotte is? ? It’s a choking weapon that can be formed very easily with that towel, if you get my meaning. ;/

    True about lifeguards, Calvin. But she’s also your babysitter, and knows a few things extra.

    As a child I joined the Y to learn how to swim but the pool water was absolutely freezing and so I opted out. At least I did learn to float.

    You may not realize it yet, Calvin, but your life has just been saved by good advice.

    Resuscitate? Impressive vocabulary for a six year old.

    Of course they always teach swimming lessons early in the morning when the pool and lifeguards are not busy. . because the water is too cold for the relative air temp. I taught lessons in the AM in the early 70’s (and took lessons in the 60’s) and I sure didn’t want to go in the cold water either time. Obviously not an ideal atmosphere for learning anything. Later in ‘77ish when I earned my Water Safety Instructor certification they at least recognized that cold water and learning don’t work well together.

    She knows how to get Calvin “motivated”. ;) The best way to warm up is to swim around! Oh, he’s just learning though. :P

    You’d better hope Rosalyn doesn’t have to resuscitate you Calvin.

    She’ll “resuscitate” you in her own special way!

    It’s a pool, for crying out loud! It’s not glacial runoff…

    She resuscitated your desire to get in the water.
