    Five I Guess?

    I've always loved water of any type. Trouble is, I was kind of slow to learn to swim. One day when I guess I was 5, my Uncle N took me to the local pool.  Lacking proper attire, he had to stay outside the pool enclosure and watch through the fence, trusting the lifeguards to...
