WEST SWIMMING POOL

My ass is a draggin'....Anessa who is still not smoking(and Inky's still not drinking) asked me if I wanted to go swimming with her at the pool as she has been going every evening on her 2 days off. I said sure...wait I don't even have a bathing suit anymore..But she had an extra one so I tried it on..and it doesn't look half bad..Anessa said "you have a cute little figure."...yah, right..But I do have a waist line..which is a good thing..So I grabbed a towel and off we went. The West Playdium Pool is a big deal..I don't know for sure, but someone told me it was the 2nd largest outdoor pool in Texas..well up until they starting building all those outdoor water arenas. We got to the pool about 4pm and left at 5:30..I had fun and got a lot of exercise in, but wow, my body was not used to it at all. In the water, I'm as light as a feather, well, maybe not a feather, but when I hauled my ass out of that pool onto dry land I felt like I weighed 400 lbs..It would have been a lot better if the pool hadn't been full of flying ants..Seems when we had all the rain the past 2 days it drove all the flying ants into the pool, where most of the drown, but some were still alive and would crawl in your hair and on your body..Not a great feeling, especially when they stung you..but the life guards were sweeping them up in pool nets and then Anessa's son Devin and his 2 buddies were doing it too, and they got almost all of them out..Anessa was put off by the life guards who were wearing speedo's...When I looked up and saw those cute little Czech boys waltzing by with their little speedo's I said "Look....dicks on parade."...Anessa hid in the water..As soon as she came up I said "you can see their mushroom caps on the end of their dicks."...she went back under again..I figured I could keep it up until she drown..ha..I'm going to call the owner of the pool 'Jimbo' tomorrow and see if he won't make me a rate for one hour of swimming 5 days a week. They close at pm, figure by the time I get through eating it's close to 7PM and I could just go to the pool, do some laps, float, paddle my ass around the pool for an hour and work off my dinner ..It's great exercise and I get to see mushroom capped dicks on parade 5 days a week, what more could a old lady ask for..
I asked Babs if she wanted to go to and she's thinking about it..I forgot to mention the mushroom capped dicks on parade...that might sway her..
I got sunburned on my face...not bad as the sun was already starting to set.But the clouds..oh my Goddess, the clouds..big ole fat fluffy beauts..little gray at the bottom so I thought we might get some more rain..and by 7:30 it was starting to rain again. My poor veggies are going to be washed away..I got another Japanese Eggplant from one of my plants..they are soo great..Not big but they're tasty..
I also went on line and lo and behold, the pool has a website..so I am posting some old pictures and some new pictures..
It was weird going to the pool, this was the first time I had ever been to the pool without either my kids or my grandkids..Anessa said 'My kids here, that's almost the same.'
anyhow...I had fun, and will take some pictures of the dicks on parade for you...

HOORAY! Love swimming! Love it! I think you'll find that your stress level will greatly decrease if you end up going there a few times a week! The mushroom caps? Ack!

Babs said...

Yes, the dicks on parade would certainly be a big swaying on the postive side. And I wouldn't hide under water. I'd oogle them.
My fucking yahoo mail isn't working right now.
Men in speedos... yep. Should have told me about that.

unokhan:they really are nice eye candy..

babs:i knew the dicks on parade would do it..

mrsb said...

Sounds fun! I love being in the water :O)

Allan said...

I sure am glad that women have such dirty minds.

LostInCO said...

Ewwww flying biting ants... EWWW EWWW EWWW mushroom cap dicks on parade. Please, no pictures!

Anne Johnson said...

Call me weird, but I hate Speedos. I don't hate dicks, but I just like to see hardy young hunks in roomier swimwear. That way the mushrooms are in my imagination, where they become the size of baseballs.

joy said...

I can't swim! But I might drop by for the scenery.

billy pilgrim said...

how's your back feeling?

did the water help?

yellowdog granny said...

mrsb:it was lots of fun..and the clouds were huge and white and fluffy..
allan:i don't have a dirty mind..i have an active imagination..
lostincolorado:I hated the ants, but did like getting a giggle out of mushroom caps..ha
anne:speedo's are gross, but these weren't the sling shot type and they didn't look all that bad..but that's because they were young healthy and hung..
joy:the scenery was pretty good..
BP:my back is 97%better and the water really helped...

Me and my BFF Holly have been chunky dunkin a little lately :)

It's swell to swim, I love it!

Nit Wit said...

Don't need to see the mushroom caps but I was hoping to see some bouncy parts. Foe some reason most of the time I can't make your pictures big enough to see.
Swimming is great exercise but I have worked nights so long that I get sick from the sun and burn real quick.
Speedo's, Yuk!

catscratch:i miss the water and going to the pool, but was so weird to be there without my kids or grandkids..
nit:i thought these pictures would be bigger too, but they were taken from the website and that's the size they had..
you can go to playdiumpool.com and see the history and maybe the pictures will be clearer..

If those Czech boys ever read your blog the next time you see them they'll be wearing swim trunks so long and loose you'll think they're wearing culottes. ;-)

Roxrocks said...

I haven't seen a speedo in ages. I gotta find me a pool! Sadly, the one here is indoor and if I'm going to get wet, I want to be in the sun where the mushroom caps are a-plenty!

Josh said...

Mushrooms always pop up in the most unexpected of places...

Yellowdog Granny! I cannot believe I randomly ran across your blog. I spent a summer swimming in that very BIG pool about 40 years ago. Some good family friends ran the grill there and we made and served burgers and fries all day. If anyone remembers the 60s there: shout out to Mary Margaret, Timothy, Michael, and their mom, Georgia! Oh and how I miss those Czeck kolaches! I'll never forget my summer in the town of West!

yellowdog granny said...

shanodot:if you come back I do posts on west all the time..and if you want i can give your name to jeanette karlick who writes for the west paper and she will find your friends for you...stop by again...jackie
