17 Years Ago

17 years ago I was recruited to teach swim lessons and life guard at a summer camp in the Poconos, sounded like a fun summer job. Well the girls in the cabin I bunked in were nightmares, I think they were nine year olds. The counselor or their chaperone that also slept in my bunk left after a few weeks of camp, she couldn't handle them. Luckily for me I wasn't with the girls during the day since I was down by the lake...but at night.....
Alison was in the cabin next to mine, we shared a wall. She was recruited from England to coach track. She had 9 year olds too, and they were angels, really.
17 years later she is still a dear friend of mine. We don't see each other as often as we would like but she is often in my thoughts. Happy Birthday Ali!
