I guess I'll start this little story with the continuing saga of the great "pool project". Finally the ground was ready and the pool parts came out and everything went up just fine. The water man came and filled our little above ground sweat shop and he was impressed how nice and level it was. I say "was" because the next day the torrential rains fell and like the little church song about the "house on the sand washed away", the little pool on the sand almost did! Here's a pic of what happened on Thursday.
Thankfully, the water didn't come to the house...it kept on flowing like a river to the creek side! I wish I had taken a video just so you could hear the roar..I was dumb struck at how fast this flooded and how much rain we received in such a short time. Did I mention that we were getting ready for my Granddaughter's graduation party on Saturday? The yard was drenched, alot of mulch we had put down in flower beds was now in the lawn...the pool however did not collapse. Never saying "DIE", Jack found a way to get it back on level ground and he, along with my Sister who was visiting, got it back to normal....whew! The water receded fairly quick and we had our party on Saturday.
Oh yes! My sweet Mom and my sister Midge came from Chicago and as you can see Mom is doing well. Her left arm is healing great...the right is taking longer because it was really a broken mess..but it's doing good. She had a good time and I don't know what I would have done without Midge's help in getting everything running smoothly...Thanks Sis! Love ya! So the pool saga is doing fine...although we're having a rainy beginning of the summer, I'm so hoping for a little bit of dry weather so we can enjoy it...for now, I'm gonna take a nap! The End!
