Lazy Sunday

Ginny & I need to decide what to do about our pool.

Peripheral winds from Hurricane Dennis dropped a branch into the aboveground pool puncturing the liner. We patched this along with a dozen or so smaller holes in the ten-year-old pool but it still leaks seriously. But we can’t find where it is leaking.

We could take the pool out altogether; or install a new liner; or buy a new pool; or keep trying to locate and patch the present leak Each option has advantages and disadvantages, and different expenses and expenditures of energy.

We are not sure what to do.

Not only does the pool give us pleasure and add to the value of our property, but it also adds a safety factor -- in that it served as a reservoir of clean water when the power and city water were cut off during the hurricanes last year.

I hope this is the most painful decision we ever have to make!

But, even in small decisions we ask the Lord Christ to help us chose aright.

We enjoyed a rousing breakfast at Dave’s with Jennifer, Pat, Donald, Eve & Patricia. The kids offered all sorts of helpful input about various situations other family members face.

The wisdom of my own children astounds me.

Afterwards Eve & Patricia came over to our house. Earlier, ripe fruit bent our fig tree and the girls planned to pick some. But while we were at breakfast, so were the bluejays and thrashers and woodpeckers. The birds stripped the fruit till nothing was left for the girls to pick.

Patricia began a new blog. So far all she has in it are a couple of test entries but here is her address. Please drop by and add a comment. Her site is The Rabbit Hole at http://www.holerabbit.blogspot.com/

I know limes aren't figs, but you're welcome to come by and unburden our tree for us, John!
