    Is this it?

    It's 30 minutes to sundown, pool is like glass other than the slght roll from my last dip. Water is TFP perfect and 83 degrees. Outdoor thermometers indicate that it's still over 90. Barley pop is cold and within reach. Margaritaville radio rolls at a reasonable volume out of the boom box. Cats relax in the cool recently watered lawn. My trunks are still damp but could probably use a refill. The pool light is on but not yet taking any effect other than playing the role of cyclops at the far end of the pool. Anything beyond 'right now' is far from my mind.

    Yep, this is it. This is one of the moments that I envisioned when I crossed that 't' when signing that contract last June. Ahhhhh.........

    Re: Is this it?

    I'm afraid so. Pool maintenance can get pretty boring.

    Take a water sample down to the pool store and see what you need to get things fixed up. That will give you something to do for the next few weeks.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Re: Is this it?

    We didn't go in tonight, but we went to Freddy's, got some ice cream for dessert after grilled shrimp skewers and sat on the edge of the pool after dark talking about our day and watching the kids run around like fools barking their cute little corgi heads off. Sometimes you don't even need to get in the pool to feel its relaxation.
