    Great swims! It was nice to see you and Ali. Have fun at the forum dinner tonight. I'm sitting at the airport right now.

    And a collegiate swimmer! Never would have guessed after 3 years off; thought it would be rowing. Glad the decision was made before Nats. She will be very near my niece who works in LA. My sister and I can visit together!

    Only one chick left in the nest.

    Thanks Frank! I hope we have a great time, so that Teen Fort will want to come back to more in the future after college.

    He has a pretty interesting back story. If he comes to Nationals, I'll tell him I read his bio!

    Have an open mind. If it is something totally bizarre, and you have a good meet, that will become your new favorite color.

    I won't wear acid green. I will wear a LZR Elite instead and trade the green one in later. I am counting on the fact that they wont be making acid green in bulk. NO pink either -- that's Karlyn's color.

    Oh no! I forgot to ask what colors the suits were. Now I have to stress about acid green or white.
