Another Moment of WOW

In keeping with the current Olympic Games, I am reminded of another WOW moment in my life. As a lifeguard at a private country club pool, I had the privelege of swimming ANY time I wanted (day or night) since my family also lived on the grounds (my father was the club golf pro). This allowed me to practice my strokes and dives on a regular basis. Never Olympic material, but I DID learn to execute a lovely Jack Knife dive. I was SO proud.

Fifty Shades of...Shame

Well, I finished it...Fifty Shades of Grey...and I am sorely disappointed in myself for falling into the temptation. I said I would NOT read this book; but I am glad that I now have  first-hand knowledge of the plot. I am also extremely shamed at the same time. How can such a poor portrayal of my role as a woman earn such high praise in the world of publication? Granted this is NOT my genre of choice, but I had hoped that it at least there was some literary value to its existence. I am so very happy to mark the reading of this off my to-do list.

A WOW moment

One of my first WOW moments had to be the first time I directed my high school marching band as the newly elected drum majorette. I love being in the band and it was my dream to be in this position. I was honored to be Monongah High School's drum majorette for two years. Good times...
Tell me about one of your WOW moments.
