Redneck Review

Tuesday, July 26, 2005


We returned home from a trip to see Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory to find our pool had some serious
drainage issues. Not a good thing when it's 98 degrees
and two kids are counting on their nightly swim. We
grabbed the hose to try and fill the void. As of now, it
has been filling for 4 hours, and is only about 6 inches
deeper. Oh, don't worry about the kids--they got in and
"swam" anyway. That water is going to be really cold

    The other day I bought an inflatable pool, filled it with water, got some beer & a paperback.
    Yesterday, somebody stole my pool.
    Deep sigh.

    Hi Hillbilly Mom,
    Ok, time for a family meeting. Who went swimming in High Heels? Because someone has put a hole in the pool.

    At least you still had the beer and the paperback. One summer my 5 roommates and I scrubbed out the pool at our rental house. It took 5 days. We started filling it, and after about 6 inches of water, the landlord came and took down the pool to move it to his own house.

    We tried to blame the cats. Then HH came home and said the pump hose had come loose. Then we blamed HH, because he's a man, and that is just about all he has to do: mow the lawn, take out the trash, and make sure the pool is working. #1 son used to wear high heels when he was 3. Shhh...he doesn't like me to tell people that. Hillbilly Grandma bought the shoes for him.

    The first year we bought one of those pools, the cats would get up on there to drink and deflated the ring around the top. This year, SO FAR, no cat has ventured near the pool. One is too busy stalking our duck. The other is too busy killing rats for her kittens.

    Our cats did that last year. They liked to drink the chlorine water, when they had perfectly good green fishpond water that was easily accessible. If we blew up the ring every night, the pool was fine. This year we have a bigger pool, though the boys say they have seen the cats get on it. I splash them every time I get a chance.
