Redneck country club

My mother invited us over Sunday and it was 90 degrees outside. So we brought out this 12-foot by 6-foot inflatable pool and Mark Wayne blew it up. Not THAT way! We're rednecks. We have an air compressor.

Anyway, we filled it with hose water. I'm telling you that was a COLD pool but it was 90 degrees outside after all and I enjoyed it. Let me tell you all a story 'bout a man named Jed.

Mark Wayne is on vacation this week and I'm really busy at work so I won't be posting much. So... enjoy WWIII and keep cool.

That is awesome! How deep is that pool?? Claudio and I often say we are going to get one of those pools for our yard because there is nothing I like more in the summer than a swimming pool. I don't suppose you can swim or even float in that pool can you???

Heck! I'd definitely get an inflatable. You have to get an air compressor to fill it up. The pool is about 2 feet deep. I am 5'10" and I could stretch out width wise with a brew. That's living! I thought it was most pleasant personally but everyone else thought it was freezing cold. My mother got in for a while, and my brother (who has a beautiful, heated 'cement pond') just got in for a second. Course we didn't go over to his house with the heated pool. No, we hung out at my mother's in an inflatable. Mark Wayne complained loudly about how cold it was and then left.

We have a real nice air compressor...Cla uses it for book binding (his dad is a machinist and made him binding machines). So that's no problem. Unfortunately we have NOOO privacy though and we already have a psycho nieghbor who called the cops (who gave us a warning) because we didn't mow our lawn in a timely enough manner.

Man, I dislike being around people. I have a psycho neighbor, too, but we're separated by five acres.

Funny story about them there pools-when they first came out many years ago, my SIL got one for her kids and yep...they DIDN'T have an air compressor.
Took me and her 2 hours taking turns (just going until you 'bout passed out) but by golly, we got 'er done! It helped that I have alarming lung capacity. But I will never ever even toy with the notion of doing that again!
