Paul had promised all to buy the first round so he was at Meehans at 5pm when he bought himself a beer and the first round was history! And all us "latecomer's" were on our own!
All kidding aside, it was a nice relaxed affair and we thank Bob for setting it up -- again!

This is sort of a joke but not really a joke because you can actually order, (and wear), this Huntington Master's Open Water Swim Team T-Shirt on Zazzle.com. It was always a bit of a pain to have to order 50 or 100 t-shirts, then try to figure out who wanted them (and wanted to pay for them!). Now, we can just design a T-Shirt, or a Mug, or a mouse pad (get the idea?) -- and let a web site like Zazzle handle the printing and fullfillment. They have them in all different sizes and colors -- just stick with a light color as I haven't designed one for dark shirts yet -- before I do, I'd like to know what you think about ordering Huntington Master's Products this way.
Don't forget -- Tuesday December 30th -- 6pm at Meehan's Restaurant for a few quick "shooters" BEFORE Water Polo the following morning around 6am! Thanks Bob ths sounds like a plan!

An endless pool.
A perfect stroke.
Goggles that never fog-up.
Swim suits that never stretch out.
Chlorine that doesn’t make your skin itch and your eyes water.
Ahhh… its Christmas Eve and those “specific” Christmas Wishes for Swimmers don’t seem all that important! Relax. Enjoy. We’ll be back in the pool before you know it and since 2009 is almost here, can Open Water Swimming be far away?
Open Water Swimming: that’s a whole NEW set of wishes – NO Jelly Fish, NO sharks, (yes, I still hear the music from Jaws with every Open Water Swim!), and the list goes on. But instead of all the “Negative’s” lets concentrate on the “Positive’s”. The biggest Positive -- all the really good friends I’ve made while swimming at the Huntington Y. Which brings us back to this Swimmer’s Christmas Wish: Peace, Health and Prosperity for All – as for the Swim Stuff – a few extra laps couldn’t hurt. See you in the pool.

I asked Tom for some water-theme pictures and he was happy to take them...
Tom could not finish his beer, (yes, I know that is HARD to believe). but he had a friend who was happy to take it off his hands...
This makes walking your dog look a bit easier, doesn't it?
Hint -- it can be found in one of the fried goodies displayed below...
Thank goodness that it's 2008 NOT 1968!

What would you do with 4 or 5 EXTRA and un-expected days to spend in Saigonin Late November / early December?
Well, based on the emails that I received from Tom, -- NOT a real lot except trying to figure out how he and Judy were going to get out of Saigon. And, where they were going to go when they left, as their next "port of call" was scheduled to be Bangkok Thailand. Remember, Bangkok's airports were TOTALLY closed by the Yellow-shirted protestors.
Tom would like all to note that he is wearing a BLUE shirt and that the YELLOW shirt he wore when he passed through Bangkok's airport, (just a few days BEFORE the shutdown), had nothing whatsoever to do with inciting the protest. Hmmmm?
