James Thornton...

May very well...

be in the building!

Looking forward to finding the hooligan who stole my FastSkin Pro the last time I was at LCM Zones in Maryland, and instructing my henchmen to beat him or her up, this thrashing delivered for the purpose of Old Testament Justice, even though the suit is no longer of any use to me.

Jim, I should be there in the boot. It can be used as a weapon!

They slapped a Denver boot on you for not plugging the meter?

Alison, I feel your pain. In Pennsylvania, still a relatively progressive state, you have to pay to park only if you have a car.

Just out of curiosity, did you hurt your ankle in or out of the water?

And who or what exactly is Clyde?

Clyde is my tag along friend the ganglion cyst in my ankle. I plan on having it taken out around mid-Aug, hence the boot for Zones and probably no swimming.

That's right-- I remember now. You opted not for the Wrath of God Biblical Cure I recommended to exorcise Clyde...slapping with tremendous whacking force a Bible upon his head, smiting him, in other words, with a mighty, mighty vengeance!

Good luck with namby pamby surgical techniques, which might evict Clyde, but will never get rid of his Daemon overtones, which require righteous severity to evict!

Clyde appreciates your concern but will stick with his extraction the less painful to its owner way.

Too bad Clyde won't be there when you go to Zones!
Since you can't swim, will you be volunteering or just hanging out?

Hm.. maybe I can bring Clyde in a jar. Rich keep wanting to rub him for luck. Then he can always rub him for luck.:D

I will probably just be hanging out at Zones. Most likely with my husband and son unless I can find a ride. I don't think I'll be able to drive by then. I think I'll be out of commission for 2 weeks and Zones will be only 1 weeks post-op.

Any idea when psych sheets, etc. are going to be posted?

Also, maybe it is just my computer/browser, but I am having trouble accessing the USMS event calendar.

Did Colonies Zones LCM ever get posted on this?

Just so you all know. There's a growing grudge match via email starting between Shark and I. By next Zones meet - you'll be seeing me..... SWIMMING PAST ALISON!

Careful. It's not wise to tempt a shark. She might just take a bit out of you, unless you challenge her to a 50 backstroke. See, she LOVES backstroke, esp. the sprint backstroke.

Oh... just so you know, hairy one, I tried to challenge him to back and he... backed off (pun intended). He wants to go at the shark in the 50 free. I'm getting my jaws warmed up now http://pinkseptember.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/shark-attack-girl.jpg

You kick, just more of a 2 beat kick. You should consider distance swimming...wait, that would be like me considering distance swimming...never mind, I can't be bored for that long.

Janet, that just means you'll have to come back down soon so we can meet. And next time I'll be swimming, I promise.

I can kick. Some times... when I feel like it. I just like to swing more :D

For those who were unable to attend this year's Terrapin Cup, you can get the flavor of the meet as such was experienced by one turtle run over by a truck on Day 1, and resurrected by true grit and a piss poor attitude on Day 2 (the latter not yet written but will be soon, I hope), by clicking here. http://forums.usms.org/blog.php?b=11260

For fans of Eney Jones, former professional athlete, and rumored swim suit model, there is an additional bonus photo of her groping my moobs.

Really, is there any better reason to swim Masters?

Just think of the backstroker you guys could have produced. Aaron Peirsol or Natalie Coughlin should be happy Susan never took an interest in you back in school! :D
