Swimming in Cape Cod Bay on 1/1? Not So Much!

Here is today's reading. I know it's for a good cause, but honestly...that water can be cold in July! I cannot imagine how cold it is on January 1!! Hello?! Good for the Polar Bear Club...God bless them every one! I hope they had nice warm towels waiting for them!

Thats almost as bad as Mama doing her yearly drunken dip in the pool in nov.:]

When I was a kid living in northern Michigan we used to always go swimming on the first day of May. In light of what these people did, it doesn't sound like much, but back then there were still huge icebergs in Lake Huron on May 1.

It was among the dumbest things I have ever done.

Big D: We didn't need to tell all the other bloggers that I'm a crazy Masshole! :)

Mike: I have done something similarly stupid, like jumping in the pool the night before Thanksgiving, in Arizona, but the tequila made me do it! I swear!

Mike said...

It's always the tequila.
