JOY OF A BLOW-UP POOL

The birds are singing and the grass is greening up..... The mountains above the city are still white with snow and each warm day causes the canyon rivers to swell from the melting snow.... SURE SIGNS OF SPRING in the Rocky mountains!!!

I am perusing my K-Mart ad and see that the large blow-up pools are on sell for an amazing one day only price of $9.99!!!! Ah...... Reflections of the fun I had with my blow-up pool just last Summer. Sadly the pool had to be trashed due to an unpatchable leak!!! But the JOY, the unexplainable joy that I had with that POOL!!!! Many a hot 100F day would be relieved in that pool.... I would be working in my back yard and the crystal clear waters would beckon to me, pulling me away from the dirt and sweat of gardening, inviting me to take a dip in the 18 inches of ice cold hose water. I would succumb to the temptation and strip off and splash in.....Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... Memories.

I'm heading to K-mart to get me one of those amazing blow up pools!!!

I want to get one of those this year for when we are trimming the landscape in the back yard. When it's almost 100 degrees at 7am, a pool, even a blow-up pool, would be just the thing!

Sounds like fun! I had a little plastic pool for my doggies a couple of summers ago. Buffy chewed it up!

My son loves his! We were too afraid to build a real pool with our house for safety reasons. And it doesn't seem to matter. He'll jump in and out. Give him a bucket, and he's in heaven, dumping water all around! Amazing what joy a little water and a few bucks for the plastic pool can bring.

Lisa! You're from Colorado? Get out! I grew up in Gunnison. I knew you were cool.

Oh, and in S. Texas the marinating, I mean wadding pools are a must!

Does Mesa like the pool? I get a plastic pool for Bailey every year (Norm doesn't like the water splashing)! I guess Chloe will have to learn to share because I don't know that I could keep Bailey out of one in the future!
