Will You Still Need Me...

A co-founder of the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers is also our youngest swimmer at heart. Doug scrapes the top of his age group tomorrow when he turns sixty-four, but he is still waiting for his body to readjust to his real age of 24. Yes, he probably was around when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, but that does not mean he is old.

His beautiful wife, Christine, another formidable swimmer, handed out lyrics this morning. Instead of another horrible chorus of Happy Birthday, we sang a modified version of the Beatles' song When You're Sixty Four. Click HERE for photos from Today.

He may be a Reverend and a Doctor, but he is a physical force to be reckoned with. Every week at the start of the ocean swim, he demonstrates defense against shark techniques. I pity the tiger shark that threatens him. He also passes down swimmer lore, ask him about Ted's Point sometime...

Happy Birthday Doug
