That cat knows a cool spot when he sees one. Good to see your man enjoying himself, Chico, I've no doubt he deserves a nice retirement. The pool and deck look lovely. My DH would have liked a pool but can you imagine it full of fairy grass, dust, gum leaves etc.. The effort to keep it as clean as yours would far outweigh any pleasure he could have got out of it, so like any kid reared in the bush here, he makes do with a bigger 'pool' and used to jump in our dam to cool off.

Yep, time to come for a visit to see that retired man and his wonderful wife again. And, of course, the kitties and yard.

Melinda,hubs enjoys every minute of it,loves gardening "his"kitties,chippies etc...I do too,but I never really held down a 9-5 job,because of problems with my kids,I quit work at 50.

Dahmer and 14+,practically any day of the week is fine with us,it's you girls who have to arrange it,with your work-schedule..Love to have you here and of course it has to be sunny and warm.

Melinda,I have always been a"fish"love the water,be it Ocean or a pool,so we have a pool.
As for travelling we have done a lot of that,does not interest me any more,I've seen most of Europe(from when we lived in Sweden),have no desire to go back at my age.
We used to go to the Carribbean(sp?)every winter,but the dogs and cats in those places just bothered me too much,I spent most of my vacations feeding animals.
So,now we go to Myrtle Beach,South Carolina, every year and I do love it there,love the Southerners,but we go in the fall,I would never go away in the summer.Mind you I still always find kitties to feed
I think it is all how you feel,what is important to you,most people don't see the beauty even in their own backyard,the birds,other critters and Butterflies..the flowers blooming etc...those are things that makes us happy..my"friend"will never understand that.
