Yeah... Maryse told you to put the cover back on the pool again and you just didn't listen, did you?
Cheryl said…
That's what she said.
Laughing Mom said…
You sure dove right into this challenge.

probably time to close the pool, yo!

We left the cover off to dry out before we put it away for the winter. And our pump bought the biscuit. We'll deal with that expense next spring.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, right about now I'm just floating along.
nonamedufus said…
We closed it this week as a matter of fact.
nonamedufus said…
Actually my wife made the call. And the guys came to close the pool.
Ziva said…
Okay, before I comment on the photo, try not to drown, okay? I'd miss you terribly.


Now, the photo. I really, really like it. I love the little leaves floating around, and I love how we can see your shadow on one side, and the sun glinting off the water. It's a lovely photo.

Please be careful and don't drown in the pool - you wouldn't want the EMTs to show up and see all those leaves floating around.
nonamedufus said…
I wondered if anyone would pick up on my shadow. That's the morning sun behind me.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, Mrs D really fell behind in her chores here.

Everybody into the pyool!

Ah, ha! A chore you have ignored!

Face it, Ziva is doing the breast stroke just to stay afloat. The rest of us are doing a less graceful dog paddle.

Too cold now. Turned off the heater a month ago.
nonamedufus said…
I'm trying to visualize this.
nonamedufus said…
Good to know. Now I know who to call.
Coco said…
Did you do it, meaning leaves, for today? It's beautiful if it naturally be that way. Nice photo!
Nonamedufus said…
Oh no I didn't do it. Our pool is surrounded by trees. the pine needles aren't good for the filter though.
Jamie Baker said…
Given where you live, I'll bet that water is getting CHILLY.
Ahhhh you have a solar cover!!!!! But Jamie might be right... looks can be deceiving !!

Now I've got that Mrs. Robinson song stuck in my head.
nonamedufus said…
We may have closed the pool too soon. Air temp this weekend expected to be balmy.
nonamedufus said…
We actually gave up swimming when the air temp started to dip. We shut down the heater then to save money.

One word, Mike: "plastics".

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
