Doodlemor, I think that must be the same VW bus we had a run in with just outside of Beckley in 1997 or 1998! Guy driving it looked like Santa and drove like a complete lunatic.  I'm honestly surprised he didn't drive off the side of the mountain.

That is so incredibly funny.  Did he still have the green and white webbed lawn chairs on the roof?

He must!  How many Santa look alike lunatic drivers could there be?
Some people lift weights.  I lift measures.  It's a far more esoteric workout. - (Quoted from a personal friend)

I thought they were harvest gold/green, but I guess they could have been green/white.  It's been a lot of years. How many VW busses could there be with lawn chairs attached to the roof and a Santa driver?

We had a snowflake at my exercise club this morning.

I've belonged to this club for almost 15 years.  There has always been a water aerobics class in the lap pool Saturday morning 9-10am.  The pool has 5 lanes, the class takes the shallowest 3, adding the 4th if the class is large. 

Today there were about 20 of us in class so we took 3 lanes.  There was a lap swimmer in lane 4.  Lane 5 was empty.  At about 9:45 another member started pestering the teacher about when the class will end.  I didn't hear the conversation but I strongly suspect he was trying to get our class to end earlier so he could swim laps in lane 3.  No, lane 5 was not acceptable, he wanted lane 3.  He wanted the 20 of us to cut back our workouts by 25% so he could have that lane.  Our class ended at 10am as scheduled.  We had the lane ropes back in place and were out of the pool by 10:03.
The same guy was back today, this time during the 8:15-9am class.  Same request - he wanted the 3rd lane for lap swimming instead of the already empty 5th lane.  The teacher turned him away again.  The early class was added to the schedule several years ago.
