Well sort of...... I live in the south, and in this swimming hole at least you don't have to worry about alligators. I do the maintenance on my neighborhood pool, and every year it takes about six weeks to get it ready to open for the season. You know.... cleaning it, repairing all the damage done to the club house (by the party crowd...no comment....lol...) from the previous summer, and fixing all the broke pump/filter equipment.....that kind of stuff. That's why I'm not as active on the music scene during the Spring months.
I finished everything up on Wednesday the 14th of May, (opening day was today the 15th) and this how the pool looked yesterday......
Well, we had thunderstorms, high winds and rain all day today. It's midnight and it's still raining. I went over there with a flashlight, and it doesn't look like the picture anymore...lol. Oh well.....At least I know what I'm going to be doing tomorrow!
I love the Café.....!!!
PS...my house is the one directly behind that lifeguard sign on the far end of the pool, so it's close to home! And did I mention?....I do it for free because I love it.....
You're a good man Dave! We have outdoor pools here, but you're only allowed in them for two months out of the year and they cost an arm and a leg to get into. That's North Dakota for you. It was May 15th yesterday, and when I walked out to my car after I got off of work at 7am, there was frost on my windshield I had to scrape off. Today was the first morning I didn't have to break out my ice scraper. I'm starting to wonder if we'll ever have summer.
But I would give my left kidney to go swimming in that pool. It would be awesome.
I am not perfect...but when I'm not I look good doing it.
Yeah Mel....we got Alligators. At least we ain't got Crocs like you guys do. But they're both some nasty lizards.....so I do most of my outdoor exploring way up on shore and I do it during daylight hours.
Do your aligators eat people? coz our crocs like tasty tourists..but fortunately they are very far faraway from where I live
Here in South Carolina, in recent years one person lost an arm to a gator that I know of but it was on land so they must have been messing with it. I don't swim in any lakes though and I've actually seen one about 8 feet long laying up in the yard of a house nearby. There's still a lot of swamp lands here, and the more we build houses and such the more likely you are to see them. Someone posted this vid online...it's about 2 miles from where I live. I don't kayak in any lakes around here either...lol
