I may get Polio and die from a thousand different cancers but at least I can say that I have swam in the Saint Lawrence! It’s been striking me lately that not too many of us can say that, at least not off of Verdun. We live our whole lives here….My generation of Verduners came along around the time of the Polio Scare and so we tended to stay out of the water and used the Natatorium for our summer recreation. That all started in the 50′s when Hollywood horror films were featuring post nuclear mutations and the message was creeping through even if only subliminally….
Still, I have to say I have not felt that refreshed in years. Now if I can try to contain myself to only twice a week…..
And as far as that old what to do before I die list goes all I can say is Check!
