prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. Retired oilfield. I am an old man. Will be 90 next July 20. I blog a lot about my body. As I approach death some things work erratically. I am able to attend sports and bluegrass events. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. Read at your own risk.

Lionel Moore to the rescue!

About 7:30 this morning I was quietly treading water in the aqua exercise class. Then there was a tremendous noise next to me and a column of water arose and fell down on me. Lionel had just made a shallow dive. He was swimming when he hit the water. He swam rapidly across the pool and helped a gentleman who was having a problem with keeping his head above the water. Lionel helped the gentleman to the stairs out of the pool. The gentleman was able to dress and leave the pool building on his own. The action by Lionel was impressive and well done. He received a standing ovation from the aqua exercise class. The picture below shows Lionel on guard. I am glad he and his fellow lifeguards are there!
