@edgarblythe,
Not a total non-swimmer, edgar. Just a crappy one. I doubt I'll be taking up surfing in a hurry! Laughing

@msolga,
My parents often told me that on the ship (migrating to Australia) that I constantly wanted to jump into the ocean (!), because I was so taken by it! At around one year old? Surprised So perhaps they were simply curbing my natural enthusiasm? Wink


Also, I've noticed that quite a few European folk tend to be non-swimmers. The ones who don't live anywhere near the seas.

@msolga,
Okay should we be the a2k Lead Weights Club? The a2k Sinkers Club? a2k Ocean Floor Walkers Club? Any other ideas for our club name?

@tsarstepan,
Excellent idea, tsar!
Let me think on it for a bit ...





(Oh I neglected to mention that I almost drowned in a duck pond, at around 3 years of age. (Another family story.) And was fished out just in the nick of time, covered in duck poo. So I guess that counts as aversion therapy? Very Happy )

@tsarstepan,
My father had my benighted eyes, but begged to be let in., late
41, early 42. I have the letters..
eventually a high colonel in the AAF, but he could never have been a pilot, or me either, which I considered when I was about fourteen. Osso, girl pilot (all need to duck, even before lift off).

the choices we make in so little time..

@tsarstepan,
The Anchor Club, or The Heavy Anchors, what do you all think?

@msolga,
I completely understand that, msolga, if not fully with your experience. My mother was, in my memory, in a worried state. She probably wasn't always, but the oh, no times predominated. I am probably my present belligerent and or playful self in reaction.

This is at the end of the posts:

I think you'll find that that photo of the koala was taken during the February 2009 Victorian bushfires. Wildlife suffered greatly - and there are several photos of koalas drinking from bottles, lolling about in baths, etc.
