"Do these shorts make my butt look big?" (Am I right?) Happy 2015! January 01, 2015 "3 minutes!" A show of hands for who has participated in past plunges. Strength in numbers. Oops! This guy was an eager beaver and went in before the start time. Not looking so happy. And they're off! Looking like a nice, sunny, warm day... at not quite 40 degrees! Brrr! Who is going to win the trophy this year? The trophy goes to the most enthusiastic polar bear -- the kid who jumped the gun. Triumph. Looking much happier than the initial dip. Britta and the polar bear. Sunny, the puppy. The annual hog ride. The polar bear got lots of honks. Santa on his hog. Britta got some good photos on her phone. Paddleboarding? I might have to dig mine out today. Back home to Blue's stick collection.
