Took A Sick Day On Vacation

My apologies for not posting yesterday. Several weeks ago my wife had bought us an inflatable pool like the one above and we spent a good part of the day setting it up and filling it with water.

In the process it seems I got a little too much sun and made myself a bit ill. I'm still not quite right, but then I never really was.

Got the thing filled with water just as some pretty nasty thunderstorms struck the area. As the rain hit an echo of BG's voice whispered in my ear "Now the pool is going to get all wet! It's ruined!!!" I just had to laugh. It was so something he would have said.

It has also been a full time job keeping the puppy out of the people pool. She doesn't quite understand that the big pool is for people and the little pool is for dogs.

You can see a short video of her in the dog pool here. She does enjoy the water.

In the meantime I have made a table to go with the chairs. I will post a pic of it tomorrow when it's dry. I'm about to make an important decision about all of those chairs and things piled high on my front porch.

But I think it's time to start making something different.

I'll let y'all know.


  1. If you lived out here you could build boutique chicken coops for backyard chicken keepers. It's become quite the micro industry out here.

  2. Critter- As soon as one of us wins the lottery I'm headed that direction. I could build chicken coops...

  3. Powerball is 222mill and my office has a pool going so I've got 56 chances to win. After taxes my take home would be 2.4 mill.

  4. Critter- Thou dost tempt me sorely.
