Master of Fiascos

1 strong hard-headed man + 2 females of the same persuasion = 1 fabulous pool!

A tiller and 2 days of work were required, and really I didn't do any of that, but the pool is up, filled and running. Ready for use just in time for 90 degree days...They ARE calling for one this weekend...Yep. One. Never mind that it's in the 40's at night. Right?

I came in at the tail-end, which really is preferable when I allow someone to "tear up" my yard, and besides the beautiful, filled pool there were, a, no...Indian burial mounds all around the thing. I was told I got to spread the dirt/put the grass back in since I was the bright child who insisted on saving it. So I did. I filled my wagon and filled in the "dog-trail," I put it off the deck, I put some in near my new gate...Then said strong man, "You might want to save some to put back in around the pool." Ok, ok! I admit it...they have wisdom too.

A migraine knocked me on my as last night but today I can say I've spread, patched, watered and raked all I care to.

I mowed the lawn too. Well, part of it anyway. You'll have to wait to hear about that.


  1. Good job! Sounds like you're all ready for the 90's. Enjoy the pool.
