    Well, it's not a pool yet, but it's a start in Waxahachie

    Got woke up from my nap and pool equipment was being delivered. So the official dig starts Thursday
    morning at 7AM. Finally good weather, my work schedule is right and all is well with the universe.
    And just as soon as I have time to figure out how to posts pictures....that will be right also.

    Yea, they asked me right as the dig started " is there any rock"? I said they better have their big boy pants on.
    7AM this morning back at it. The dig is finished, the base has been laid. Now anxiously awaiting pool delivery at 1 PM. Gonna make lift with crane over the house. That ought to be interesting.

    I wish I had me a few of those white rocks. I would like to have some sizeable ones in my landscaping. Bit far away for me to come and get it though.

    Also, what mecarcrazy says, I wanna see video too! or at least some pics!

    The pool was within 1/4" level on first attempt.....wow!! The installer has been doing this for 30 years. Nice job so far. It;s all about the prep work.
