The Incident

We had a little incident over the Christmas break. Stephen’s nephew, his wife and 4 children came for a visit.  They came for dinner and as it was rather hot, Stephen thought it would be a good idea for the littlies to have a swim. Sounds great doesn’t it? However the incident showed that NONE of them could swim. Stephen’s brother David relates the story below.  Not quite right, but very funny all the same and I thought you might enjoy a telling.

“Just to let you all know that we have an unassuming heroine in our midst. The story has just been passed onto me from two different sources and I want to share with all. The location is Kerry & Steve’s place, early in the New Year. The children are playing in the backyard pool with adults chatting and “supervising” suddenly there is a yell “he is going under!!”
Well, her horse might be slow at the barrier, but Our Kerry is a thoroughbred and without hesitating and oblivious to the carefully applied makeup and the six inch Manolo Blahnik stilettos she dived head first into the “cement pond”.  She swan into the murky depths and  found the child, grasping the scruff of his tee shirt in her pearly whites she then swam for the surface and carried the poor soul ashore.
When asked later why he decided to fall arse over teakettle and make such a splash the boy said that it was an involuntary action. “All I remember is waking up in the arms of Aunty Kerry and seeing tears in her eyes.  I said don’t cry, you have saved me in time, I’ll be alright. She is skinny but she is strong, just like Wonder Woman.”
I doubt that Kerry will tell you the same story but we all know that the true heroes (heroines) are modest about their achievements.
Thank you “Wonder Woman”

YES I did dive in and save the little one, fully clothed as well… Here is Mathew, below in orange with his brother and sisters.
