As our society has become more "refined," I'm left wondering, do people still swim in creeks or just head to the pool now?

When I was a kid, the pool was great, but usually was located in town, and sadly, I lived out of town.

That's where the local creek came in. Oh sure, there might be a few more "hazards" to watch out for - sharp rocks, submerged tree branches and the occasional snake, but if you found what we referred to as a "sippi hole," you were in for some good swimming and good times.

So, my "hard-hitting" question, about swimming in the creek...let me know!
