If you are swimming, of all the different strokes the “Key Stroke” is probably the least effective.


note: If you can’t swim, you can always go in a carpool.

double note: photo from 2006 in Brazil. Yes, it’s cheesecake, but I like it anyway. As Jack Nicholson said, “Maybe, this is as good as it gets.”

  1. Gosh Ross! You are soooo such a tease! I wonder if anyone will notice if I blow this up and put it up on my wall? Yah, they probably would. Brat.

  2. I usually do the “Sun Stroke” or the “Heat Stroke”.

    As much as I love palm trees, the climate doesn’t love me.

    Also, if you put me in the water, I’m what you call a “sinker”.

    “What’s that at the bottom of the pond?”
    “Uh… I think we need a lifeguard!”

  6. So that’s what you looked like before you put on 60 lbs (30 kilo’s). 😉
    my favorite stroke is still the breast stroke.

  7. Heat stroke!!!! Oooh baby! What was all the fuss about having to suck your stomach in? Either you are convincingly good at it or you are lowering expectations…
    Either way, I have a sweet tooth, so bring it on!

    I’ll have a posting about the children from Ilha Grande in the near future. Next time, hopefully I’ll make it to Salvador de Bahia. And Buenos Aires and Patagonia and Santiago and Tahiti and and and… 😉

  8. Well carpool it is, I hate water, I always thrash around clumsily and end up almost drowning … That looks like a lot of fun, lucky you 😦 !!

  9. I meant you “were” lowering expectations. Now they are jacked up fo’ sure!

  10. Thanks for all the comments 🙂

    S. Le: You forget!! I am the cheese 🙂

    Augusto: I like that quote as well 🙂

    sweetiegirlz and nathaliewithanh: just ignore Kelly Pettit’s comment. I don’t think I’ve gained any weight since then; just a few more wrinkles 🙂

    Turkish Prawn: Aren’t prawns usually found at the bottom? or is that lobster and crab? 🙂

  12. In view of conflicting allegations and considering the 60 lbs disparity between statements, I demand to see proof.
