After spending a great deal of money on chemicals which seemed to do no good in our swamp, I mean pool, hubby and I made a decision to JUST DRAIN THE DAMN THING! We're glad we did as no amount of shock and chlorine could have fixed what was in there. We found a bicycle, lamp shade, family of muskrats and Shrek himself. Oh I'm kidding! Just nasty water, some leaves and algae is all. Although the last pic doesn't show it we drained every last drop of water and scrubbed it 'til it gleamed. Now today I must call for water prices. I think hubby is naive in how much it will cost. We'll soon see.
I'm a sucker for advertising. This candle boasted that when burning it would sound like a crackling fire. Hah! It sounds more like a cheap candle with a cheap wick. I'm so glad I paid a lot of money to hear a candle that sounds like it's on it's last leg.
