Finally, a beautiful day Laughing

1. Have you been able to wear flip flops/sandals/open toed shoes yet?

2. At what age did you/would you let your child date?

3. Swimming Pools: Do you jump right in or sit on the side?

Why don't you two get along?  Oceans seem more intimidating.

Have to agree with you on this one. I will swim in a pool but basically just wade in the ocean. I don't go in water that I can't see my feet either. That is why I love the Caribbean. I can just sit in the water up to my neck and have a cocktail. lololol.

I grew up on an island in Maine so no ocean water is too cold for me-- and nothing makes me happier than some seriously wave riding.... I'm not a huge lake swimmer though as lake bottoms squick me out... but the ocean makes me so happy

I have never met a pool chemical that I didn't have an allergic reaction to.  Isn't that lame?  When my son took swimming lessons at an indoor pool, I had an asthma attack every time I walked into the place.  Chlorine is the worst offender...I also have to use a filter for my shower.

The today show had this really cute segment about how boys are proposing to girls for the prom.. "Promposals" they called it, Lol. Only a couple of DD's friends have steady guy friends, I don't get the big deal, They're so young!

Well, that sucks.  They do put a lot of chlorine in some pools.  I'm usually thankful for it, but I can see where it can get dangerous.  Maybe there's a salt water pool nearby.

I agree.  I love the ocean but I'd rather watch than play in it.
