    Guess who's back...

    Hi guys

    As some may know, I had to be absent from here for a couple of weeks (my mother broke her leg in 3 places and I went to help her when she got released from the hospital )

    Mom's doing as well as can be expected (she can't put any weight on her left leg for 4 months while the brittle old bones mend) and I left her to the care of home health aids, physical therapists and friends last Saturday as I went to pick up my 11 year old daughter for our annual "winter vacation" week together.

    Though I missed participating on TFP, I knew that 17 days would leave me with a backlog of posts to check and take a few hours to read/ answer, so I didn't log on til Wed. (having only a couple weeks/ year to be with my daughter makes every moment I get to spend with her all the more precious) Now I'm free of my duties as both a son and a father and can once again turn my ~full attention to pools :P

    I'd like to thank the folks who PMed me for their support and well wishes (mom appreciates them too) - some of my best friends are on this site and even though we may never meet face- to -face, I appreciate all of you who have become my friends via this site

    Now let's all have a BIG group hug and get back to helping folks with their pools

    Luv& Luk

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D

    POOL SCHOOL, TF Testkits, Jason's Pool Calculator, CYA vs. cl chart, (Just a few DARNED handy links!)

    Dang Waste !!

    Sorry to hear about your mother and her leg. I hope she gets well soon. I broke my tibia and fibula bones in my lower leg in 1995 and was on crutches for 9 months before they put into a walking cast! It takes time for bad breaks to heal so she needs to be patient ... I know what she is going through !!

    On the other hand welcome back !!!
    Don't have a pool right now. Just sharing what I have learned over the years!
