Summer fun With My Granddaughters
Isn't that what Summer is about? FUN!! My beautiful granddaughters and I went swimming today at our local pool. It brought back such memories. I closed my eyes and listened to the people just like I did when I was young. The smell of sun tan lotion the sound of people, really took me back. I lived most of my childhood at the local pool. My best friend Lee Ann and I. Swim team,(breast stroke and butterfly)buying large Slowpoke suckers at the concession for 5cents! What wonderful memories. Well, some not so good too. Getting up at 6:00am for practice. Cold Cold Cold!!! We about froze our cookies off. My friend was so skinny the poor thing would turn purple. Could you imagine kids of today freezing like that? LOL The pools weren't heated in those days that's for sure! We were at our pool so much they let us in free. We would WALK home to eat dinner only to WALK a few miles to get back and swim till close. Those were the good old days. I was in such great shape too.
