    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...

    Am I Weird?

    I was really crazy about water as a kid, although I learned to swim rather late for a water freak. Anyway, I was drowning many times because even before I could swim, I felt so good in water that I wasn't scared at all, so I was never careful. Can't say that drowning is pleasant...
