    Pool time with PawDad

    My grandsons have a swimming pool in the back yard of their home in the desert. Though I've had the pleasure of splishing and splashing with them in it a time or two, Jim — who due to job demands hasn't been able to visit the boys as often as I — last saw the pool when it was in progress and merely a big ol' hole in the ground.

    Jim's perspective on the pool changed this past Sunday.

    My husband and I took a quick trip south to see the boys and their parents over the weekend, and Jim, er, PawDad finally got to join the boys in their pool. And in their hot tub, too.

    Clearly it was no fun at all for anyone, and future pool time with PawDad shall be avoided at all costs.

    Today's question:

    When did you last have pool time with grandkids — or any kids?

    My last pool time with kids was 2016 August. My serene floating on a raft in one daughter's pool was interrupted by a gang of little "cherubs" who besieged me with water guns. I slipped off and spent the next several hours splashing away with them, enjoying one of the most fun times of my life!

    What a fabulous memory, Joyce!

    So long ago that I can't even remember it! Sure looks like PawDad will remember his trip and pool time.
