Polar Bear Plunge

Ok, for decades I made fun of the fools who dove into a lake on New Year’s Day.

Yesterday I did it.

My wife Joy and I joined 20+ other folks at Tims Ford Lake in Winchester, Tennessee for the Third Annual Polar Bear Plunge. I now am the proud owner of a pink t-shirt that tells the world that (a) I am comfortable with my masculinity and (b) I took off my clothes and dove into a lake in the middle of winter.

I will not be wearing it frequently.

And, yes, it was cold. Very cold.
