Thanks JT for sharing your cool photo and for your energy, enthusiasm, and friendship! Keep shootin' photos and we will keep posting. Hopefully, some more of your contemporaries will join in and help us post more lifeguard related content of interest to our readership. We are still holding our breath on a long ago promised story from Harold Dunnigan... ahem, ahem... :-)


Until next time.....
