Sure, you know it. My much younger colleague knows it -- younger than I, that is. The refrain goes "Coo-ool, clear water." It got a reasonable amount of radio play in the early 80s. And I think I know one of the earlier versions, too.



Hugh McMeniman

Hugh McMeniman (born 1 November 1983 in Brisbane) is an Australian rugby union footballer. He currently plays for the Queensland Reds in the international Super 14 competition and has played for Australia. His usual position is at lock.

McMeniman made his Super 12 debut for the Reds in 2005 in a match against the Wellington Hurricanes. That season he played nine games at lock and one at blindside flanker, but missed a game against the Cats through injury. Following a strong debut season, McMeniman wasa selected for the Wallabies team for a match against Samoa that year in Sydney. He went on to be included in the subsequent matches against Italy in Melbourne and France in Brisbane. He was elevated into the starting lineup for end of year tests against England, Ireland and Wales. The following season he was called up to the Wallabies squad but has an injury.

Yet another athelete to ignore.

I remember the Sons of the Pioneer version...remember hearing on the radio even. I didn't know that it had been covered by the others though...must find.


I like mine!

Sampson State Park (along with Sampson State Park Beach) is located in Seneca County, New York in the USA. The Park was once a Naval training station, then an Air Force base. It is also located next to the former Seneca Army Depot, a munitions storage site. Some buildings were removed but the roads remain, leaving a network of 38 miles of paved trails in a wooded 3-square-mile area. It also features a Naval museum, located in the original "brig."

Many people enjoy coming to Sampson State Park for the museum, camping, swimming and to remember their days spent at Sampson.

The park is south of Geneva, NY in the Town of Romulus on the east shore of Seneca Lake, one of the Finger Lakes.
