NOW ROSIE AND I NEED SWIM SUITS

Well, Now I am sure that the doctors told my husband that I am going to die. Yesterday he had a heater installed in the pool house. Next week, the gas company will run the gas lines and get it turned on. No he didn't do this for himself. He never gets in the pool--didn't when we were young. It is strictly for me.

We had a heater when we first put the pool in but when it broke about 10 years ago, we didn't replace it. I don't know how many times, I have said I wish we had a heater again; but it is just to expensive now and I am to old to enjoy the pool anyway. Guess I will have to get in it now whether I want to or not. And the real upside is that Rosie will get warm baths this spring in the pool.

Wonder where one gets a swim suit for a senior citizen?

Skip the swimsuit. Let it all hang out. The beauty of age is that it finally doesn't matter anymore and you can just do whatever the heck you want!!! Let the rest of the world sweat the small stuff - you don't have to. Enjoy the feeling of the warm water on your body and have a ball Lucille!

Lucile, Your post made me laugh. Maybe your Hubby has always meant to replace the heater and kept putting it off. Now he knows time stops for no one. Enjoy!!! I am sure your Hubby is not in the habit of wasting money, so he fully expects you to get as much use out of the pool heater as you can in the next 10 yrs and with modern technology that pool heater should exceed the number of years it lasted when you first got it. How old will your and the pool heater be in the next 30 yrs?

You're a riot, Lucile! I think your hubby knows that now that your heart is all fixed, he'd better give you some form of regular exercise or you'll be too much for him!

That was a good one Karen
Lucy that sounds so nice swimming Rose will have to chase you around the pool. FYI It is hard to find swim caps these days

I say----God gave you the best suit already Lucile! Your BIRTHDAY SUIT! If you find the neighbors with their noses pressed against your fence peeking in---just smile cause that means you are ONE HOT MAMA!!!

I agree with Julie....Swim suit, nothin doing, I suggest you get husband to plant big hedges around your back yard and just go have fun in your Birthday Suit. Swimming at night is also very nice, if you must get a bathing suit you can find some cute ones online but they are so confining. Keep a robe by the pool.

Susi I had my hair cut really short before surgery and I liked it so much had it done again. Now I don't have to do anything but towel dry and run my fingers through it--so no swim caps.

Years ago we did the no swimsuit thing late at night. The six-foot fence takes care of the neighbors seeing in the back yard; but when DH got strangled on a drop of water and couldn't get his breath and I tried everything to calm him down and talk him through it. I knew he wasn't dying cause he was making a little wheezing sound. All he had to do was calm down and relax and the spasm in his throat would relax also. He wasn't having any of that though and thought for sure he was dying. I finally in exasperation told him that he better get his breath cause I wasn't dialing 911 and flaging down the ambulance in my birthday suit. Beelieve it or not, but that worked. he got his breath and started laughing.

Oh yes, in 30 years the heater will be 30 years old and I will be 96.
