Another great chapter

That view really is something. That grass was pretty odd too, although I hear that the next generation of skyscrapers around the world will try to include stuff like that in the design.

I had to laugh at the statue of liberty though. What a great costume!

You're doing a great job with the formatting of course.

That sounds cool!

Judging from the pictures, I must agree.

That wouldn't have stopped us from taking 70 more pictures.

That seems like a reasonable assumption.

Am I the only one that, at first glance, thought this was a picture of a shower head in use?

I figured that either you or Dan would get this round. Although I'm waiting for him to come back and say that he can see her in every single Swarovski crystal.

I wouldn't know where to look for pictures from back then. Our old film pictures are so un-organized...that's a project for another day, or several.

Please re-enact, with a film crew present. GreatBiscuit can put it together with slo-mo and the whole thing. Green screen, if necessary.

Great. Having thought the trip report took a strange turn, I have now caused it to take a strange turn.

Here is the story - I will have to go back and find the pictures. PB is saying I moved them and from work it is blocked- which is new-

The Ryan Lochte story - From 5-5 -10 MeMoms Mother may thread page 86 post #1268

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok Ladies, and you guys who appreciate this sort of thing.

Here I am at the Ultra Swim swim meet doing my thing. My thing is to watch the swimmers at the turn end of the pool to make sure they conform to all the rules of swimming for that stroke. At this level of competition, I am decoration.

At this level of competition, the judging is a bit more formal. I am seated and as the swimmer approaches the wall I have to stand, approach the edge of the pool and stand one foot forward and watch. As soon as the swimmer finishes the turn I turn and go back to my seat.

That being said, and explained, here I am doing my thing.... I see Ryan along the side of the pool talking to a coach, being stopped by girls for pictures etc. He makes his way across and stops NEXT to me. I mean literally this



is 6 inches from my shoulder.

Ok no problem I am here to do a job.

Then the towel comes out! Yes he wraps a towel around himself and I know what is coming next!
You see, some of these guys don't do locker rooms to change. They do a deck change, meaning.... yup changing right there on deck.

So now at some point out of the corner of my eye He turns a bit towards me to remove his suit. Then again, out of the corner of my eye I see the blue undies come out of his bag.


yes the ones pictured here.

Then he puts those on and well like most guys do .... adjust. I am trying real hard to focus on the job I am there to do.

Just then a swimmer is coming ... great now I need to make it to the edge of the pool and not fall in ... oh yeah and watch the turn.

This


was just 6 inches from me!!!!!!

Who does this happen to!


By the way here is the whole package- so to speak


This was when he has the shaggy hair.

He is with my friend Christy who works at the Aquatic Center. While I am trapped poolside she gets to go outside and get a picture

Well there you have it. I was pretty much flashed by Ryan Lochte.

no not every crystal just one of them in the top corner.




i do agree with marv this round on his winning guess...i would have been right there, but was on a family vacation for hte last 4 days so missed out on this update.

can i make a formal request to have lauren write your TR to disney section as well, she is much better than the original writer of this thread.


just kidding.
