Our farm manager and I used to fly to Alberta a couple times a year to go to cattle sales. We always booked the window and isle seat for the four our flight.
 

More often than not the middle seat remained empty. But this one time there was an older gent between us. We didn’t even get pushed 20’ back from the gateway and he was dropping the most deadly air biscuits we had ever smelt.🤢 It lasted for at least half the flight and thankfully decreased along the way. We never booked our seats that way again. 

 

Ewww...!!  😖

Pool furniture went out today even thought the pool is not opened yet. It is a bit early but the weather today is 77F, feeling like 81F. Much warmer than normal but we will accept it.

Very nice!  And very inviting looking.  🤗 Great job on the design.  Hope that was the end of your snow, and becomes real pool season soon!

Beautiful yard and furniture. A balmy 42 today with clouds and some rain. Snow on Tues.

Flying: I hate it and white knuckle the whole way. 3.5 to 4 hrs just to get to a cruise in FL. 

And have picked up awful sickness from people around me on a plane.

We will be moved to FL by fall and drive to a port.

 

 

 

 

I am in Florida and can drive to a port...but for some reason they won't let me drag my luggage up for drop off with the porters this last year.  😮😉

Beautiful set up.  Installation of Unilock pavers begins next week on ours. Will be done in 2 weeks (so the contractor says LOL).  May I ask the make of your dining set & pool loungers?  I’m having trouble finding ones that match (and don’t have cushions).

Exactly and the Royal Family are respecting this.

They will be wearing face coverings too.

Reminds me of the older gent standing in front of me at muster drill one time.  As if standing outside in oppressive Miami heat and humidity packed in like sardines wasn't bad enough I was forced to breathe in some of the worst gas I've ever smelt.  Eventually had to pull my T shirt over my nose so I wouldn't puke.

Last set of snow tires removed and stored away.  Pool vacuumed out after a long winter, chlorine added and the pump set to run a few hours every night to keep it from going green.  It will be another couple months before the heater gets turned on though.

It will be a bit cooler next week but that should be it until the fall. One neighbour was cutting his grass today, but he loves to be out of the house.  We also think that way he is also away from his wife because he cuts the lawn twice a week.

I gave the laugh emoji but really it could have been this one too. 🤮

Graham, curious and admittedly have not been keeping up with current news regarding Prince Phillip, are Harry and Meghan attending funeral and how will they be (or expected to be) received?

I didn't remove a cover, or vacuum, no chlorine added, no pump to turn on, and it will be some time before the heater does anything at all...20200112_170048.thumb.jpg.b12de6ecdddb48f08453eee77bea239c.jpg

If I had my way, I’d fill it in but my wife likes it so I’m stuck with maintaining it. In 20 years I’ve been in less than a dozen times. 
 

id take your “pool” any day of the week.

No, no!  The cat is their “pet” in their car who isn’t allowed out.  Love the Golden puppies...puppy breath...💕

Ahh, I didnt realize the cat was in same car.  I'll have to play closer attention next time I see it on tv.  Too cute!😺

I moved from Florida in 1999,  from a home that had a pool.  I have no desire to have another one to take care of. Of course, fire ants love to build their nest right next to the filters. But when they start biting, the perfect solution is to jump in the pool. They don't last long in the chlorine water.
