    It's not much....

    But it's ours.



    Moved the offset (left umbrella) to that spot today, not fun when it's 87! If we're lucky the fabric will last the season.

    Next project, deck removal and reuse as a "pool stuff box", hoses, toys, all that jazz.

    Thought I'd share.

    What a pretty shade of blue!

    I look at the above ground pools sometimes and think, "what a pain to have to climb the ladder." But then again, the only stuff that ends up in your pool is from a direct hit; anything on my patio is a likely candidate to end up in the pool. That includes lawn clippings that blow out from under the mower, shingle grit, bits of charcoal and ash from the barbeque, drunks....

    24' is pretty good-sized unless you wanna swim laps, and very few of us have room for a pool that big! You have nothing to apologize for.

    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!
