Life's ups and downs

Yesterday just ahead of the storms, I finished the deck boarding job! Today my 15 year old pool decided it didn't want to hold water anymore so 12,000 gallons spewed out like mount St. Hellens. You know the pool loss isn't so bad because it really was used by my labs now however, the $5000.00 it will take to reconfigure my whole back yard just blows right now! I'm getting too old for this kind of stuff! It had to happen right before my son's wedding and I was going to have friends over that are coming in from out of town!

Just think HM, things could be a whole lot worse. Everyday that one wakes up in the morning is a good day. You may be sore and achey but you're still there to fight another battle. I don't know if that sounds right but I'm trying to be as inspirational as i can. Without the pool you have more room for square dancing and all that stuff.
