Openin Day

Now usually when someone are talkin bout Openin Day of dere favorite summertime sport, dey is talkin bout baseball.  Now, I like baseball - I are always tryin to steal da balls when da kidses are playin in da park.  But today are way more important and fun dan baseball - today wuz da day when my pool finally opened for pool ball!


I been waitin, anticipatin, for months!  Basically since pool ball season ended in October.  Today it wuz sunny and it hit 90 - perfect pool ball weather!  Da water wuz still pretty cold, but dat don't bother me and momma.  I has a nice fur coat and she has swum in da Pacific Oshun in February (you Californians know how cold dat can be) and used to go to Barton Springs all da time when we lived in Austin (in case ya don't know, it are always 68 degrees).


When momma picked up my pool float, I went nutso and started dancin.


Dat water sure felt good!


I wuz so happy!


Can't ya tell?


I went after dat ball like no one's bizness.


Not too bad for a 12 1/2 year old girl.


I luv bouncin da balls off my nose, it are so much fun!


And I luvs bein in da water on my pool float.


Can't ya tell how happy I are?


Back to hittin balls!


I still get pretty good lift, even if I don't play quite as long or hard as I used to a few years ago.  I still has a good time.


Here I are dryin off post pool-ball.


All dat eggcitement wore me out, I are ready for a nap!

  7. OMD...You are never too old for pool ball!!!

    Mama is in Austin now...she was soooo happy to get off the plane and feel the warm air hit her face! It was in the 30s this morning in freezing cold California (where she would freeze if she went in the water!)
