Snow in Texas….Where is my heated pool?

Miracles do Happen!

Miracles do Happen!

Why is it that knowing miracles do actually happen….like making it snow  yesterday in Houston, Texas and today in Jackson MS, that I am now thinking of my backyard pool and how I wish it was 85 degrees and I was on my float soaking up the rays.  It seems the colder I get the more I wish I lived in Florida beachside.  Really, now is the time to start thinking of the improvements you want to make to your pool area so that you will be ready in the late Spring.  Ask yourself – is my pool liner in good shape?  What about that Turbo Twister slide the kids have been wanting? I guess as I begin to make plans for my pool next summer, I will do the next best thing by passing the time away in my portable hot tub out in my backyard.

Shopping for the Holidays is Easy

With so much to choose from, how do you even decide what to get your kids, friends or family members for Christmas?  That in itself creates enough chaos to last the whole year.

I suggest shopping on-line to begin with.  Many people have become professional on-line shoppers already.  But a way to capture some unique gifting is to purchase “fun” pool supplies that normally wouldn’t show up until the warmer months and have them shipped right to your door.

A pool slide is the perfect gift to put under the tree so to speak.  Well, you may have to set it up by the pool but you can dress it up with a huge red bow!

If that sounds too big to deal with then go for a smaller pool gift like the Remote Control Water Soaker.

The Remote Control Water Soaker lets you sneak up and soak unwary poolside travelers from the other end of the pool. The full-function, battery operated radio controller controls movement around the pool , elevates the nozzle, and controls the soaking stream. The Remote Control Water soaker features a nozzle that will shoot a stream of water up to 20 Feet!

The water resistant remote control can be used in or out of the water so hide around the corner and secretly soak your unsuspecting friends. The remote has two channels for interference free fun.

With tons of options for easy “click shopping”, there really is no reason for people to get so stressed out about traffic and lines.
