    Having trouble getting in the groove this year...

    Don't know what it is? I know what to do to keep my pool trouble free, but somehow I'm lacking the motivation...

    Yeah, what woody said^^^ What's up with you , Beez?

    Try this for motivation: Ignore a flower and it will die. Ignore your pool and it will come alive

    Do you have a Margaritaville frozen concoction maker? ...just asking....

    Note to self: spit shine concoction maker for impending holiday weekend. Their shot chiller is pretty nifty too! Takes the burn off the edge at 15 degrees.
