What is happening chez ici.

One day, Bear found some interesting looking big black things out in his yard. "Hmmmm-," said he. "I wonder what the Daddy Man is up to today."

So he looked up on the roof, and, lo and behold! There was his beloved Daddy Man! "Whacha doin' up there, Daddy Man?" he asked in his most precise Poodle-ese. DaddyMan hollered down- "Yer Ma wants a warmer pool. So she's going to get a warmer pool."
"Far out," said the Poodle.

Later in the day, the "little sister who must be avoided at all costs unless she has food" said-"Hey dad. The pool temp is 85 degrees F."

(Please ignore the crazed look in the eyes and the attachment of the hand to a water gun. They are both figments of your imagination. And the picture taker did not get THAT wet)(Although the kidlet was told to walk away from the water pistol. Quietly and without any sudden movements.)
Even the gigantic dragonflies seemed to like hanging out with the new warmer temperatures in the pool.
Gee, solar heating for the pool is nice. 85 is such a nice number.

I love Bear posts!

I think that would be too hot here. I'd much prefer my water in the 70's or 60's.

Mmmm, sounds good to me, too! Ours has only gotten up to 82 once this year. With all the rain this week, I'm sure it's back down to 75 ish.

Hmmmm...that is sounding like a bath tub. Is it refreshing? I bet it's relaxing!
Does it help your aches? I hope so.

Love Bear's new haircut! So adorable.

It rained more and we were down to 72, now up to 75. I'm thinking solar heat like that would be wonderful!

As far as I am concerned, that is the perfect temp for pools!
