I'm the whistleblower

Got my Red Cross lifeguard/CPR/AED certification in mid-October. I just wanted the skills but the local YMCA is desperate for guards so I took on a few shifts.

I swam alongside an older woman recently and told her she was a good swimmer and asked her how far she swam. She told me “only 4 laps” and then said “I’m 97 years old”. Her advice was “When you’re 97 shoot for 4!”. I enjoy our YMCA.


Castoff and I both have relatives who are 96 and still going strong.

Great headline, Tom. Congrats on the certification.

Nice. Can they swim more than 200 meters? :wink:

Probably just the butterfly.

Thank you Rookie.
