H2O: two parts heart, one part obsession

When we lived in our last house in Nashville, we had an in-ground pool. When we bought the house, it had been unoccupied for a couple of years, and there were dead animals floating in the pool!!
 But after a lot of work by a handyman that we hired, it wasn’t too bad!

When we moved to Kansas, the pool was probably the hardest thing for Randy to leave.

So, he has wanted a pool ever since. The area that we live in now is very rocky and it isn’t cost-effective to have an in-ground pool. But with Randy’s neuropathy, we decided that even a small above-ground one was worth the effort. So, he has been working (after his day job) for the past couple of weeks on getting one in our back yard. Here’s a play-by-play through pictures:

We had our kids that live in Utah and their families over for Memorial Day and we had a barbeque with swimming. It was wonderful.

  1. Actually, I think the handyman did very little work on the pool. I think he removed the 2 X 6s and wire protecting it from kids falling into it and drained it into the street with a roof pump and I did most, if not all of the repainting of the surfaces and got the pump working.
