Yup, them four little words are going to have to be used by quite a few congressfolk who don't like colored blokes. Awwwwwww, what a shame!
Hmmmmm, that "lady" congresswoman named Michele Bachmann had better get used to saying it. Along with good ole boy McConnell from Can-Tuck-Eee. Wasn't he the bloke who called President Elect Barack Hussein Obama "uppity" and referred to him as "boy"...?
Ahhhh, isn't the diversity of the human race good? I think it is.
Before I go any further, here's a pic of a cockatoo on the roof:
Oi, mate! Gimme some grub!
Now, here's where I get to talk about the pool... and my back. The pool is good. My back is not. Before I start blabbering on about those two particular things, here's some more birdie pics:
Getting back to the pool... I just finished vacuuming out all this morning's duck crap from it, and I've also skimmed the surface from all those mean, nasty, creep-crawlies that got blown onto it.
There's just oooonnnnnnnnnneeeee more thing to do: scrub the sides. Now, see I can't scrub the sides while standing over the pool. Why? Well, my back is not the best back around.
5 compressed vertebrae, left hip 13 mm lower than right, spine curves to the left, right shoulder 11 mm lower than the left, and 2 neck vertebrae rotated 15 degrees counterclockwise.
Anyways, standing on the edge of the pool with the scrub brush with a 4 meter long handle while bent double trying to scrub the pool wall is just not one of my most pleasant activities.
In fact, I'd rate it right up there with death.
But never fear, gentle readers. I've found a very very very easy way to clean the pool walls.
I stand in the pool while brushing the walls!
No bent-over-ed-ness, no sciatica the next day, no walking like Quasimodo for the day.
So, it's just a terrible day... I've got to scrub the pool walls. It's 88 F in the shade, 124 F in the sun, and pool water temp of 79 F. I'm just gonna have to persevere somehow... Damn it'll be nice when summer gets here and the darned pool warms up!
Of course, after I finish the horrid job of being in the freezing cold pool while scrubbing the sides, I'll be sure to take 5 (or 50) and flop in my new inflatable pool lounge. You remember, it's the one with the dual arm rests, two beer holders, and head rest?
