    Brisk waters

    Well today was the day One of the kids talked me into getting in the pool. The water temp was 75, A bit cold for an old guy like me... but hey after you chip the ice off your skin, it really was not that bad... so guys get your suits out of the closet and get in... it was only 58 outside temp so 75 felt good... happy swimming

    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!

    Dude! The suit you got out of the closet was your wet suit, yes?

    Yes????

    Where in eastern Washington? I lived in Pasco that first year after I immigrated. My memories are of the Columbia River and tumbleweeds.

    I remember Moses Lake and the drive there through the desert. There was a PX nearby where I did my shopping.

    Way too cold for me

    just got back in the pool yesterday myself. I've been in the spa all winter but it's not worth heating the pool if it's just me.
