The pool is crystal clear now. There was a major leak in the pool one night it lost about ten inches of water. The major leak has been fixed, but I believe there is a smaller one somewhere. We have been having rain, so it is hard to judge the loss. I will need to get in the water and locate the other leaks, if any. Did you know you can patch these liner pools with the water still in them? Well Don was talking the other day and told me how to do it. That was fortunate because when I found the leak I knew exactly how to patch it. Good friend, good advice.
Jen over at ‘starting over’ said in her blog, she might consider getting married again if she found a man who would not be embarrassed to purchase Tampons (Or some words to that affect). It reminded me of an embarrassing incident when I was about six years old. (Yeah Lucy I can remember back that far! LOL). My sister in law Ruth had came to live with us for a few weeks while my Brother Odis and Uncle Hisure went to Texas to find work.
Well to a six year old a Kotex box looks a lot like a Kleenex box. My nose was running (I didn’t have my coat on or I would have used my sleeve, ha, yeah I know you girls never done that!)
Anyway I needed something to blow my nose on, so I took a Kotex out of the box. Now this was confusing. WHY did they make these so thick? I was sitting in front of the closet seriously trying to tear this ‘thing’ apart. I had just figured I had better use the thin pieces at the end when Ruth walked in. She was as sweet back in 1945 as she is now. She got me a handkerchief to clean my nose. Funny I knew I had done something wrong by her and mama’s looks, but I did not get embarrassed until years later when I realized what I had actually done.
