the daily Schwimmbad, 6-19-20

Today the wife and I visited our local Schwimmbad. The word ‘Schwimmbad’ is the German translation for ‘swimming pool’. I think they otter change it to ‘Schwimmgood’ because it was wunderbar! The water is warm and clean looking. I did save a bug who was struggling. I scooped it out unto the pavement. He wiggled…… Continue reading the daily Schwimmbad, 6-19-20

the photogdúmpenbùrgerdampf continues … Sports didn’t begin with the National Football League.

We have covered several athletic and recreational activities these few past days but now it’s time to put this baby to bed.

What is the opposite of yesterday’s post about the sedate, gentlemanly pursuit of chess? Why, it’s the Olympic marathon! Whereas in chess you sit and stare, Olympic marathon requires you to run (the opposite of sitting) and hallucinate (the opposite of determined concentration). Why is running such an important part of Olympic marathoning? That’s how you…… Continue reading the daily 26.2 , 4-23-20
