Hot time.  Summer in The City a thing of the past for me.
When I was ten, we moved to Milwaukee (West Allis)
and hot it was … after the glorious summers in Northern
Wisconsin…HOT.  We moved near a public swimming pool
a great place to cool off.
Memories of the swimming pool shower first,
feet checked.  Girls HAD to have a rubber swimming cap over
their hair. UGLY.  Now that I think about it, so were the
swimming suits !
I learned to dive…they had a “low” board, and “high” board
and the most common dives we did were cannon balls and
belly flops !    Hot times…fond memories  !
