CRAZY

In my day summer fun was crazy! Malta comes to mind, vivid memories. Playing water polo in the roughest sea! Crazy! Snorkelling on my own, two minutes down, looking up, fifty foot, gagging! Worth it, the wonders seen, amazing! Crazy! Three times rescued, suffering cramp, swimming, the worse, with a friend, we'd swam a bay one k., halfway back, it struck! Crazy! Diving off a thirty-foot cliff, swimming up the cliffs water spout, on rough days could be seen for miles! Crazy! Oh! I could do it all again, sadly now not even a maybe! We, the wife and me, still enjoy the summer sun, on our patio with family and friends, fun, but never Crazy! All true, the friends who saved my life, Alan Hobbs Captain Ian Spence, then a bunch of mates, who noticed I was being battered by the heavy seashore surf. Crazy!

Excellent Mick! A swimmer I'm not...a doggie paddle at best. Good luck in the contest. Charlie

I'm noticing a parallel of risk and crazy.. but it doesn't look like anything ultimate holds you back, and that's "good crazy"!
