Go jump in a lake!
I had plans with friends to do a "social distance chat and swim" for Monday. Of course that's the day the dry spell ended, clouds moved in and thunder changed our plans.. typical! I really needed the distraction, I could have used the company but that's what happens when you are me, Mr Bean. Oh no? You don't think so? Well then I decided that I felt comfortable enough for a haircut, I haven't had my haircut since March 9. Suddenly it dawned on me that I didn't need to go to the city, the young woman who used to do mom's hair is really good and cuts men's hair as well.
I called to make an appointment and she said, "I'm sorry Steve, I had to close down, I went for a walk along the river, tripped and fell, I broke my fingers on one hand". Poor lady, finally allowed to open her business and now she can't.
Fortunately we decided to try the swim and chat for the following day. It was a go! I brought my own drinks, lawn chair, sunglasses and Speedo... not. We sat around under the trees having a good conversation. There were two rules however; no political talk (especially that name.. ugh) and no virus talk (especially that name..ugh). After a while there were some dark clouds in the sky so we decided to go swimming.
It brought back many memories, I often swam in this lake as a child and up to my twenties. I couldn't help feeling like a kid again. Once I got in, the water felt great, there is always that moment where (for men) "the boys" try to convince you that submerging them in cold water is a bad idea.
Eventually the day turned into evening and it was time to go. I said my thanks, packed everything up and left. Last night I had one of the best sleeps I've had in a long time.

Sometimes it's the simple things that make life enjoyable.
Sounds like you had a lot of fun!
Yay for going out. And I think we’re gonna need photos of you in speedos. Just because.
Nice stress relief! I second Sixpence about the speedos pix. If that is too much, I would love to see your hair.
Greetings from the cape! Not quite Mr Beans...you didn't get a leech stuck to your dick! And have you seen the boys yet? It sure doesn't feel good to get away for a while doesn't it, getting out from the four walls so to speak?
I'm so glad you had a good time... the swimming bit... was it with our without trunks?
The socializing you needed! I’m glad it worked out for you. And it provided a good night’s sleep in return. Double bonus! Now, when do we get the speedo pics?
Richard, yes and that's why I'm trying to seek them out.
Anne Marie, yes we are... hahaha!
Sixpence, yes I enjoyed myself. I'm waiting on the pics you sent first! ;)
Deedles, yes it was a good stress relief. My non haircut, think of "Cousin It" from the Munsters only ginger. Haha!
Maddie, yes I could do this for a week.
Dave, well after the women went back to the house, one guy said "trunks off boys" and tossed his towards the beach. Then everyone started laughing and did the same. Many of the men did not seem affected by the cold water.
HuntleyBiGuy, you will see my Speedos when I buy some, so that's never. ; )
Life at is simplest...and best. I used to swim every summer in the lake near my hometown. Good memories.
Michael, yes especially when it brought back memories of better times. We were also talking about how different life was for us as teenagers compared to kids now with the phone on under their pillow at night.
