The water temp is perfect at 81 degrees. You would think everyone would be falling all over each other trying to get here to swim, but the numbers are down. I refer to this as Lucky’s Lake swim Fall paradox. The better the water temp, the fewer folks show, go figure; however it may due to this email I received below (my comments in red)
I’d like to say that their is something similar to the Loch Ness Monster living in your lake (of course there is, it’s called thelake cane monster), but perhaps it is just a very large carp (no, the carp we added were 10-12 inches, just small enough for the pelicans to eat).
This morning i was swimming back to your beach. I got a bit off course (been there, done that) and ended up down by one of your neighbors’. About 3/4 of the way to touch down, i was broadsided by another swimmer, or so i thought (it was a swimmer, just not human). Something very large (Ron) crashed into me and knocked me sideways. I looked up to apologize for crashing into another swimmer (you didn’t have to, it was likely Ron’s fault). i got the words “I apolo….” part way out of my mouth before i realized that there was NO ONE THERE! (must not have been Ron, he couldn’t have swam away that fast).
The fish (“Slimbo” is his/her name, the monster does not like being called a “fish”) that ran into me had to have been at least 4′ long, maybe more (you probably bumped into its head which is about 4feet wide). I felt a significant impact when it collided with me (this is covered in your release form, I think in paragraph 3 or 4). Anyway, it kind of shocked and frightened me (not recoverable damages) and made me swim faster (you should pay extra for that) then usual so i pulled my calf muscle (okay you don’t have to pay extra). After realizing how ridiculous it would be to drown myself because i’d run into an innocent fish (the monster is not innocent he/she is hazing you) i calmed down and swam back with just my arms. LOL!!!!
The Rollins college swim team joined us for a swim Saturday before last, and they had a killer breakfast afterwards, which made me want to swim for Rollins, but then I checked the tuition costs and decided I am fine eating at McDonalds.
Katherine Gianini broke the women’s 40-44 lake swim record with a time of 21:06
Candee Crowe got inducted into the 100K club
Yes, it is true. Digger has learned how to fly. He can be seen on Wednesday mornings flying around the lake pulling a banner ad.
Thanks to all the lake swimmers that bought raffle tickets for the Gladiators (14u water polo team). You are all losers (not really you are winners in my eyes you just didn’t win the raffle). The winner of the raffle was Alex Kogan who won over $600.
Simba scored his 200K shirt. Which looks exactly like the 3rd 200K shirt that Ron got.
Allan Shields gets in the 100K club but the scene is stolen by Don “pump you up” Paradis.
