So we talked a bit and then Jerry left to go to church because his granddaughter was serving as an ‘altar girl’ and I was left alone in the pool. Apparently, it had been a busy day because before I arrived, the pool had over eight people in it at one time and this is all before 7:00 AM.
While swimming, I noticed that one of my fellow Sachs’ patrons, Marky Mark, a young man who frequents the gym, showed up as he has been for the past few days to get in the whirlpool. I had just gotten in when he arrived, dressed for a workout. He takes off his t-shirt and plops in with his nylon jersey workout shorts, never once admitting to the fact that there was someone else in the vicinity. I think he is one of the few people I have seen who regularly avoid trunks in the whirlpool, any others I know just don’t wear anything. I have noticed that he is always listening to a music, either he is crazy for it or he is using it as a ploy (as so many do, it is quite effective on a plane if you don’t want to strike up a conversation) to avoid communication. I got out, hit the locker room, shaved, took a shower and he flew in, showered, and dressed faster than the speed of light. That usually doesn’t happen as I am notoriously fast in the locker room. Needless to say, Marky Mark is an interesting character.
My thoughts go to Wayne, Dan, and Carol. I remember their most interesting shared experience with us, when they helped Richie work on a science fair project, one of my pet peeves. More to come. Off to check out the roof!
