When I was growing up, Memorial Day weekend meant two things--school was out and the pools opened up.
Years later and not having children, school getting out isn't as big a deal as it was back then. But one part Memorial Day weekend is that the outdoor pools will finally open. And even though I swim laps five times a week and it's not like getting into a pool is all that big a deal, part of me has to admit I still get like a little kid, getting excited that the outdoor pools will be opening this weekend (at least the ones at the Y!)
And, of course, one big part of being around the pool is finding that just perfect piece of swimwear. Looking at The Nashville Rage
's swimsuit issue last week and seeing the prices of swimwear for the ladies, I have to admit I am glad I'm a guy. Also, I'm glad I'm a guy as the only real choice we have is what color of trunks do we want? (I will repeat it again--unless you are competive swimming, guys, you do NOT need to wear a Speedo as a courtesy to yourself and everyone around you). But it seems as if the ladies have a ton of choices available to them and at a huge range of prices.
So, in counting down to the big pool openings this Saturday, I am going to feature a week of posts with women in swimsuits. Here's the first one, taken from the Nashville Rage
's swimsuit issue.
