    Don't Let Anyone Tell You...

    That chores are not dangerous! I smashed my head off of a newly hung shelf yesterday vacuuming around the baseboards.

    Rusted skimmer

    Well, I knew when I closed I'd be pulling the skimmer to check the integrity of my wall around the skimmer cut out. I'm happy to see that the pool wall is still solid and a pool replacement will not be needed. On the other hand, the pool does need work which I will be doing in the spring. I need...
