Oh, Snap!

The Hula-gen’s are anxious to try out their new pool, since it was built in the fall and then promptly covered in preparation for the impending cold weather. In a couple of weeks, the cover will come off, and we can start getting it ready for swimming. The cover is one of those heavy duty thingies that’s supposed to hold up an elephant, but the Hula-gen’s, being the skeptical sort, have been afraid to test it.



Now, we don’t have to. Special Delivery did it for us. He danced right across it Friday while we all watched, unable to stop him. I’m happy to report that the cover held like a charm.


But we all need new underwear.

OMG! We have the exact same cover on our pool - we've never tested it with humans, but it holds several feet of snow load with no problem. They may be a pain to put on and take off - but SD just proved why it is worth the effort!
