Pool Guest

As I walked by the window last week, I glanced out at the pool as I normally do. A little something caught my eye, so I had to take a second look. There was a brown ball of fur sitting on the cleaning tube. A little brown mouse. Apparently, it couldn't figure out how to get out of the pool & had been swimming a long time. It must have been exhausted, since it didn't try to run as we approached. After a few tries, Randy netted the little creature and tossed it onto the deck. Randy said he would dispose of it, so the girls and I headed inside...didn't really care to watch what might come next. I just know that I didn't want to find it on the bottom of the pool...or even worse, in the filter basket after having been sucked up by the cleaner! :-0

Oh the poor thing! (& no, I wouldn't want to keep it around either!)

How's your family enjoying the pool? Upsides and downsides to pool ownership?
