Yeah... Maryse told you to put the cover back on the pool again and you just didn't listen, did you?
Cheryl said…
That's what she said.
Laughing Mom said…
You sure dove right into this challenge.
meleahrebeccah said…
probably time to close the pool, yo!

We left the cover off to dry out before we put it away for the winter. And our pump bought the biscuit. We'll deal with that expense next spring.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, right about now I'm just floating along.
nonamedufus said…
We closed it this week as a matter of fact.
nonamedufus said…
Actually my wife made the call. And the guys came to close the pool.
Ziva said…
Okay, before I comment on the photo, try not to drown, okay? I'd miss you terribly.


Now, the photo. I really, really like it. I love the little leaves floating around, and I love how we can see your shadow on one side, and the sun glinting off the water. It's a lovely photo.

Please be careful and don't drown in the pool - you wouldn't want the EMTs to show up and see all those leaves floating around.
nonamedufus said…
I wondered if anyone would pick up on my shadow. That's the morning sun behind me.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, Mrs D really fell behind in her chores here.

Everybody into the pyool!
MalisaHargrove said…
Ah, ha! A chore you have ignored!

Face it, Ziva is doing the breast stroke just to stay afloat. The rest of us are doing a less graceful dog paddle.

Too cold now. Turned off the heater a month ago.
nonamedufus said…
I'm trying to visualize this.
nonamedufus said…
Good to know. Now I know who to call.
Coco said…
Did you do it, meaning leaves, for today? It's beautiful if it naturally be that way. Nice photo!
Nonamedufus said…
Oh no I didn't do it. Our pool is surrounded by trees. the pine needles aren't good for the filter though.
Jamie Baker said…
Given where you live, I'll bet that water is getting CHILLY.
Ahhhh you have a solar cover!!!!! But Jamie might be right... looks can be deceiving !!

Now I've got that Mrs. Robinson song stuck in my head.
nonamedufus said…
We may have closed the pool too soon. Air temp this weekend expected to be balmy.
nonamedufus said…
We actually gave up swimming when the air temp started to dip. We shut down the heater then to save money.

One word, Mike: "plastics".

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
