It is on......

This seemed like the appropriate time for a first entry. I called the bank to get a "foreign draft." The deposit for the pilot to guide me across the channel. If you don't know what channel I'm talking about, it is the English Channel. I'm on the schedule to swim it next September, first postition, second tides. It is my big "mid-life" crisis, or "what I'm going to do when I turn 40." This journey really started 3 years ago when I decided to swim it the year I turn 40. It was also the first year I was back in the water since I was 21. I have been on the 4 year plan. Only now, certain things make it more real. Arranging for the bank draft is one of them, I guess it is time to stop messing around and start practicing.

Foreign draft

"Foreign Draft". Sounds dangerous - like a crew of foreigners that will randomly grab you and draft you into their military.

Regardless, this deposit might also turn out to be an investment ... right now the dollar seems to be going down against the Euro, so if you are lucky, you could get more dollars back in the event things fall through.

Not that I want it to fall through! Go Laura! Stay away from the jellyfish!

Well I've always had this soft spot....

For men in uniform, maybe the bank is having me join the french foreign legion.....

Love the pic of my BF.
