We used to have a pool. It was a nice pool and served its purpose for almost 16 years. We got rid of it, and the ginormous deck we had, 2 years ago, when we built the porch addition. A lawn was planted in the crater that was the pool space. Trouble was, you could tell that a pool had been there, and Mr. GreenJeans was not pleased. So, now, he's ripping it up. 1/2 my yard is being roto-tilled as we speak.
