Swimming Pools, Movie Stars

While my computer "rests" my screen saver of past summer photo's splash on the screen.  What a lovely reminder of sunshine and warmth during this winter chill. 

I live in the Pacific Northwest and we seem to be the focus of jokes about how rusty we are due to our rain fall, and how our State flower is mildew.  Yea, ok.  We get it.  But it does get warm here too.  Truly, I'm not kidding. 

We are so fortunate to have neighbors that have the most lovely pool in their backyard.  It's really dreamy.  The house was built in 1956 and has never been remodeled.  If you are a fan of Doris Day movies, where women are perfectly quaffed and martini's are poured when the gentlemen returns home from work, then you would love this house.  (I do!  I absolutely do!!!) I was told JFK dined in this house while campaigning!  Most of our summer pictures come from my girls playing in the neighbors pool, while I lounge in the shade (pretending we live there ;->).

There are those hot, miserable summer days when I have dreamt of having a pool.  We might be able to handle an above ground pool in our back yard, but then the temperatures dip down to our normal summer 80's and then the idea drifts out of my mind.  Until... the next round of summer sunshine and warmth.  Ah, some day.
