May’s a tough month. Lots of swimming because the sun’s up, but cold. Very cold. I love May. Love it. Bye bye, Pool. The water feels cold – “I don’t care” as Trevor Malone said when he jumped in prior to his channel swim a few years ago. Of course, Trevor followed that up with “I’m swimming to France”. Most of us won’t be saying that!
Why am I talking about May? In June? I was too busy lately to spend time on important things – like reading loneswimmer.com. So, I missed the article from two weeks ago that I’d asked for two years ago. “Write fancy stuff about May, Donal”, I said. “More of that flowery shite that Mr. Finbarr loves”. “No”, said Donal. Only a few years later, he changed his mind.
Mr. Finbarr loved it, I’d say. The Myrtlevillians even got a mention at the end! FAME – at last! You can’t go higher than loneswimmer.com. Thanks, Donal!
