Call Me Crazy

IMG_0205

It was New Year's Day and time to go visit my friends from the Missouri Disabled Water Ski Association doing their annual Polar Bear Club craziness. They go water skiing in the frigid Mississippi to raise funds for their work teaching people with major handicaps, including paraplegics and amputees, to enjoy the sport. Nice people. A little loopy but very nice.

This gentleman was doing handstands on what I'd call a boogie board if I saw it at the beach. In the end, human weakness and the laws of physics took over.

I say this as a rock climber... there is something loopy about doing that on a frigid January day...

Oh well done to them Bob, you really have to admire the extremes people will go to to raise money, I applaud them loudly!
