Well, we finally did it. We finally got rid of the above-ground pool.
There was nothing wrong with it. It's been nice to have - when it's clean; when the weather's good, etc.
Unfortunately, swimming pools take a lot of work to maintain and keep clean. A few years back we hired a pool man.
First, the owner of the pool service came. He was a wrinkly old man who stripped to his Speedo in our back yard and did a great job patching and cleaning our pool.
After that, though, he sent a kid every week. The kid didn't seem to know the job and even caused some damage. Not so great.
And pool service isn't cheap either.
So we - Caroline! - struggled alone to keep it clean. It was not easy.
Remember when the frogs took over the pool?
But now the problem is solved, and we have a nice flat (and grassless) patch which is perfect for a vegetable garden!
Can't wait to get started!
By the way, here's my colorized version of Ridin' Along:
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
