Do you have a pool?

Heavens no. I'm sure I don't know wherre we'd put one.

Alas. No pool. We had one as kids. My sister has a pool that I like to lounge near during the summer when I visit.

For swimming? No. For betting. No. For contemplation, yes.

My townhouse complex has an outdoor pool that is heated from April through November, along with a hot-tub that is kept hot all year round.

No - in this country only millionaires have pools.

No. Had a 15x24 footer growing up (10,000 gallons). Ironically it got destroyed by a flood.

Not any more, thank God! I left it when I moved. I don't miss water testing, chlorine, pool cleaning, clarifier, the pool cover, or getting the pump fixed.
