    New critter scenario

    While I was at work today hubby grabbed pool towels that had been hanging on the deck rails since probably Saturday and threw them in the wash. I came home needing to wash clothes (having just been a spectator at the kids outdoor swim meet in 95+ degree temps) so I threw those towels in the dryer and proceeded.

    He just came to tell me there was a dead frog in the dryer (front load type with window). NICE !!

    Now there is one that should have made it into the skimmer instead of clinging to a towell. Would have had a better chance. Ahh..... Rural life

    That's better than what I was thinking you were going to find... like a dead squirrel, chipmonk, snake...

    My husband found this in our pool last year, posed it and then sent it to me at work. He wishes he would have put a beer in its paw..lol

    The frog in the dryer was interesting. It was plastered to the view window but today was a rat that survived the night balancing on the skimmer weir. Fun fun.
