    That's the courage I took when I jumped into mine, dirty and all. I feel my pool and I have bonded after I choked down a bit of chlorine and dirt.

    72 degrees - it's WONDERFUL!

    I cleaned it, but the wind keeps blowing junk in from the fir trees in my neighbors' yards. Had to wrestle with the Kreepy Krauly for old times sake.

    Well, it's over cast right now in our part of Metroplex too. But great time to clean the vinyl and rubber stuff, including spa cover, and do 303 Space Protectant on all. Good time to wash grimy windows too. Of course do the work near the pool with a cold one.

    We got a few sprinkles last night that dampened the trees some. I made an eight foot fire pit, surrounded by heavy wire doggie exercise pens, to keep the puppies out, and started burning the debris from our freak snow storm. Also trimmed some broken limbs out of the big Holly trees. Today going to start working on the aged, rotting wood piles that are great homes for the copperheads.

    Last night I discovered the attraction to fire pits so many people are putting in. While I was baby sitting the fire, into the wee hours of morning, I made my plan for a permanent pit.

    I woke up with a wee bit of a hangover.
