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.
