Prep school boys, swimming naked; typical Monday for Martin ….

naked swimmingHi, friends and readers:

I’ve no idea how when the photo at left was taken, but I’m guessing it’s close to one hundred years old. I’ve read about these type, all-male prep schools, in the U.K. and the United States. Swimsuits were never worn during P.E. classes, everyone swam naked. I’m told this was also true at the YMCA, when only males were allowed to join. Guys swam in their birthday suits.

Ah, the good old days ….

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me during the past week, but I can’t seem to get out of bed in the morning, at a reasonable hour. This morning, I slept until ten, despite the fact I went to bed last night around midnight. Who needs ten hours of sleep? At any rate, I’m up and it’s another beautiful day outside, sunny and breezy, with a temperature in the mid-70s.

This afternoon, I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. And, no: I won’t swim naked. Then I’ll visit the golf course to practice my swing and my putting. Nothing too exciting, but a great way to spend a few hours. Have a nice Monday, friends.
