A swimming lesson

I did not go to the pool on Saturday or Sunday or Monday.  Shame on me.  I am a jump on in kind of pool person.  I go to the deep end, wait for a clearing in the crowd and jump.  I love that feeling of going down and coming up.  You just can't beat it.

Class was so so - I really missed the stretching out and going forward of lap work.  And I'm thinking I need some pointers.  What's the best way to do this and that and fins or not and board or not, etc.  And what not to do.  I learned to swim when I was a kid which is also the last time I had a lesson on horizontal in the water.  My aqua exercise classes are all vertical work.

So I bought a swimming lesson.  $36 Tomorrow.  With Alvin.  Alvin sometimes teaches the aqua exercise class and can be very good. He's been teaching swimming and coaching swim teams for a long time.  Plus, he's around a lot lifeguarding so... if I can get him to give me some pointers then, maybe, when he's life guarding and he sees me do stuff wrong or sees what I can do better he'll let me know.

Tomorrow at 1:30.

In other news, I'm trying to download fewer than 300 pictures from an old Flickr account so I can then upload them to my current account.  Trying to do this has eaten up most of my day and caused me all kinds of headaches.  I finally paid (only $5) for a little piece of command line software to do the job and it hit a wall with an error that makes no sense.

I sent an email asking for a fix or my $5 back.

Then my brother sends me the answer to a question I now no longer care about. It's a swf file that won't open on any machine I have.  I sent him an email and got the following reply:

"Can you dear out in ie?"

That is all his note said.

But, it's not just me.  I just got this little exchange in G+ (The words "Grocery Outlet" are hyperlinked)


I really wanted to ask her if she knew who was buried in Grant's tomb.
