My Old Bike – Skinny Dipping

Skinny Dipping

Skinny dipping isn't necessarily about sex. As I see it, kids are naturally curious and adventuresome.

Let's leave perverts and pedophiles out of this discussion... they do not belong in this world anyway!

Moral of the Story

Need I say it... Keep your clothes on in public places!

Just think about all of the cell phones out there with built in video cameras. And don't forgetĀ surveillance systems... You never know who's watching. Besides, you might get a mosquito bite in a very unfortunate location šŸ˜‰

Talking Points

  1. Was Paulette being mean, playful, or curious?

Personal Note

As a kid I was kind 'a like Frankie and Scrawny Ronnie rolled into one. In this situation I was more like Scrawny Ronnie. Let me just say, "I don't like getting caught with my pants down!" šŸ˜‰

Being on the water has been my passion as far back as I can remember. I was always dreaming up ways to built a boat. My friends and I even tried making a raft out of fallen logs in the woods, but we never did figure out how to get it to the river.

For my tenth birthday my mom and stepdad gave me a rubber boat, complete with oars. Today my wife and I have 14 kayaks, 9 Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boards, 2 sailboats, and a powerboat. Can you say obsessed? Ā Good thing we live on a lake šŸ˜‰

That rubber boat got me on the water and there was never a shortage of friends willing to join me. One buddy in particular had the great idea of skinny dipping while we were at a campground. Yup, you got it, he tossed his swim trunks over the other side of the boat and they were never seen again!
