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.
meleahrebeccah said…
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".

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik
