Weekly Winners/Sundays in My City

Holy cow! I almost forgot to post tonight, and I'm deliriously tired for a Saturday night. Forgive me if I talk nonsense...

We attended the Conference Swim Meet today, in Manitowoc (man-i-toe-wok), Wisconsin. You know you're at a conference swim meet when you see this....

(They're in the stands because they are the divers of their team, and diving was yesterday.)  Thank goodness they can shave it off eventually.  Kyle's is more yellowish, and only two kids on his team (captains) were brave enough. (Sorry....I forgot again to take a pic of his....he was wearing a swim cap, anyway!!)

For the record, the bathroom floor at Lincoln High School is freakishly annoying; see if you don't agree....

It was really hard to look at (even now, it's making me a little queasy) and actually made me feel a little disoriented. What were they thinking (about a 100 years ago, when they built the school)?
I couldn't help but notice a similar pattern in this shot, but I found it much more tranquil....

The calm...

Before the storm...

Kyle (on the far block) was so ready...
He achieved two Personal Record times today, in the 50-Free and 100-Free. After the 50-Free, he stopped by where we were sitting nearby, all lit-up and happy, wanting to share the great news (as if we hadn't noticed.)  As he walked back to his team, the lady in front of me turned around and said,

"Was that your son? That just warms my heart."

Mine, too.
