    You always remember your first...

    Amphi & I had become a little complacent with
    "first timers" in our amphibious realm until we
    shared a ride with someone who was afraid of
    the water. Imagine that... being afraid of water!!!
    Anyway, this new passenger encounter really
    drove home that the proverbial virginal wet entry
    is really something kinda special. After all there
    is only one "first time" for any Amphi rider, even
    though the thrill is nearly matched with each
    successive re-entry. And of course the ever
    mounting anticipation is a marvel all unto itself.
    Amphi likens himself to the Magic Johnson of
    introductory first time swimmers having logged
    dozens, perhaps hundreds, of the newly wetted.
    It is indeed a special gift to be shared with all,
    that first time in, be it back seat, front seat, or
    even the voyeuristic gleam from the pier. All
    these Amphi encounters are treasures we should
    cherish. From Amphi's perspective - even the
    slow entry, and gradual buoyancy that follows, is
    appropriate in some cases - the young and the
    elderly seem to actually prefer the slow entry
    method, while most others hope for the wildest
    possible Amphi interlude. And some just like to
    go in-&-out, in-&-out, in-&-out as long as there
    is adequate protection and it's safe. Oh... how I
    digressed from our water fearing passenger tale...
    perhaps another time.

    On the semi-related topic of tranny balls and shafts
    posted by others - I will endeavor to research this in
    depth and report at a later date.

    Please remember to cast a few votes in the "Polls"
    on the value of Amphipoda postings. The votes
    are completely anonymous - even to me. Thanks.
