The pool closers did their thing. We live in a one-season climate for the backyard pool, for sure. This was a very good season for dipping, I will say. Thank you, my dear wife Karen, for your wonderful pool upkeep so we could thoroughly enjoy our oasis.
With my dear wife Karen working weekdays in Schenectady for her traveling sterile tech gig this month, we’re off to a slow pool start. She’s the one in charge of the whole backyard pool thing, glady. The pool company has visited. The cover is off. Karen starts a local gig come the start of July.…

It wasn’t too long ago that the backyard pool was covered with snow and ice. My dear wife Karen has already talked with the pool company rep. The weekend before Memorial Day. We are optimistic, yes.
Let the collection begin.
