In a few hours I am heading to the United States Lifesaving Association's National meeting in Galveston Texas. Guards come from all over the US, including Hawaii. I am meeting my best friend Erin and many guards that I have known for over 25 years. 5 of us from Chicago will be attending this conference. The picture above was taken in Galveston in 1991 at the National Lifeguard games.
It's funny my friend Erin lives 30 min away in Beverly where I grew up and the only time we seem to get together is at these meetings across the country. See you in a week
