In our pool in Fort Meyers, Fla. 1969

Last week, I emailed my Mom, asking her for any pictures of me from either my 9- to 11-year-old swimming era, or my brief but illustrious high school era. I was planning another blog post about swimming you see.

She said she'd be damned if she couldn't find any.

But she sent this, assuring me: you were always a natural.

Thanks, Mom.

    For some of my stories I am having to look for stock photos. At the very least, I get the story down. I don’t have a lot of pictures of my grown children, either.

    I work in Fort Myers, FL and live in a town right outside! It’s cool to know that you were here on vacation way back when!! I’ve lived here in FL since 1985, but was born/raised in Wisconsin. I love to listen to the Nutritional Weight and Wellness podcasts you’ve suggested. Not just for the great health and wellness information, but also to feel like I’m back home in the midwest again!!
