Monday Mystery

Actually, I was going to use this as a "Friday Frustration" post. But, I decided that I've been complaining too much lately. So, instead, I'm going to abbreviate it and turn it into a "Monday Mystery" post.

We've been having problems with our pool. A lot of problems. They seem to be continuing from last year. Well, actually, pools are just problems in general. Ours are ongoing. 

Butch has been handling everything pool related for the past several years. Frankly, I'm glad of it. It's just too darn frustrating. But since he was out-of-town this week AND Thursday was the beginning of Camp Aunt Barb, I reached out to our pool guy to find out if any cleaning was going to be taking place. He responded that they had been by on Tuesday and then sent this picture:
What the??? In the 27 years we've had this pool, I have never seen anything like this. I have no idea what it is or what it means. I guess it's some sort of measuring device. Who knows. 

All I know is that the pool is NOT clean and the pool cleaner is sitting dead in the water---for week 3 now! 

It's a mystery to me what this means. And a further mystery as to why the heck we can't get the darn pool fixed!! And I'm having a pool party on Tuesday. I have no idea what shape the pool will be in by then.

If it's not one thing it's another! I'll quit complaining now.


  1. That looks like one of those water testing kits that measure alkaline levels to see if the water is safe to swim in. I've no idea what it means when all the colours show up but I'm guessing it isn't good news!

  2. How pretty! That would make a cute embellishment on a page about your pool parties. (How's that for making lemonade?)
