    Most of us were taught to swim in that manner. Just a great little poem. Enjoyed much.

    Delightful nickname and your memories stir up my own of swimming in a local river which I would never let my children do. Times were different then.

    A memory worth keeping......a boy growing up, and learning something that will never be forgotten. Nicely done!
