Topics of conversation:
Welcome back to DK, who is feeling much better and seemed back on his usual form, especially when Abs needed a rub down.
The temperature has really dropped so much of our conversations was around keeping warm after the swim. Abs has to drive home so she needs to get her circulation going before she jumps in the car, as does Boo Bob. Movement is the only answer and we talked about the sledding and Milos's techniques of arm rotations and hand flicking. Obviously we tried some jumping up and down and running about too. We also discussed the term sled v's sledge and decided that sled was simply the american word for sledge.
As we were making our way back home Abs (with tongue firmly in cheek) asked if we use lard to keep us warm in the winter, The Pirate's rapid response was "NO!!" and then he qualified it with "I'm vegetarian!"
I found these online today, so Abs, if you are reading this, it might be worth a try.
