When I Took My Steps Sons Down The Canal.I remember the time when I was marrid to my ex wife one day my self and three of her boys alon kiven and phillip whet out for a walk down the canal.
apart from ofualesly mey self been able to swim as you will gather from m perivios storie alon and kevin could also swim puillip how ever could not .
as we were walking along every time we past one of the loachs kevin kept showing an intrest in going in for a swim in his clothing .
at first i tryed to put him of for a bit partly as I did not know if he was been genuien or not and also i know his mother would not approve if she found out about it.
but affter a while we got to the loach just afterkirkstall abby on the leeds and liverpool canal and he was still showing an intrest in going in swimming fully clothed .so been awer that his mopther would not approve and the fact his other two brothers were with us I warned alon and phillip not to say any thing to their mum .and i said to kevin if he raley wanted to do it I would show him how it was done I then proceeded to the edge of the loach and jumped right in swam to some steps and klimbde out .
It was now kevins turn to have a go at it this was the first time for him he when t up to the edge just as i had and stood for a while hesatting about it then he asked my self and his brothers to call him a chiken whitch we did at this point he lepy striaght in to the canal and swam accross it .
he seamed to enjoy it but not raely sure if he di or not. as he never whent again after that and it was not long after that that me and his mum split up.
