Invation Of The Water Snatchers

Woke up typically late, after all it's Saturday and it's my day to sleep late, but wait besides my three live-in grand kids didn't two more slept here? Yep, my grandson "Ducky" and adopted grandson Noe also spent the night, that means that if I'm smart I should stay in my room and hide or...

Let me go out to the peace and tranquility of my back yard. It's a little hot though. Wow, Mike is really doing a great job at keeping up with my back yard, no wonder last Saturday he took over three hours trimming here and there. Oh but look at that pool, it's a little hot and that water is saying "Jump in, jump in, and I will keep you fresh and cool".

Oh yeah, let me go and get my floaters in, I shall escape the kids and relax in the cool pool water, floaty here I come.

Some people buy these very expensive floaters but for me this little $3.00 plastic unit is more than enough. Only thing is, will the bright orange color clash with my not tanned body?

Oh, hell yes it clashes, darn I'm white and I'm not white if you know what I mean. No wonder mi chica thought I was Puero Rican and not Mexican when she met me.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... who invited you to my shindig, who let you crashed my partei, wait... who in the heck are you?

Well, so much for peace and tranquility in the coolness and freshness of the pool water.

No, no, no, no, how in the heck are you little things multiplying? Who are you invaders? This is a nightmare, the attack of the water snatchers, get out of my sweet dream and let me re-claim my pool, my little oasis in the desert, my piece of paradise.

What, that I must be crazy, and you won't leave my domain, and you even dare throw me the "I am all powerful" sign by raising your fist to the air. Well, that's not fair, I'm only one lowly grandpa and you are seven monsters in training.

Well you know what they say, if you can't beat them, then join them, and that's exactly what I did. After what seemed hours in the pool they all came out begging for food, and the girls from the inside, the ones that unleashed those monsters into grandpa's swamp of fun hooked us up with the best tasting sandwiches and some little packets of punch. It all made for a fun time in the sun, a grandpa and seven of his grand kids. There were two more inside but since they are of the toddler kind they had to say inside.

Yes, my grand kids invaded my desert oasis, and my paradise but truth be told I enjoyed every single minute of it and bowed that we will do this again soon.

Kids, what a blessing... in disguise.

This is the BEST post I have ever read from you! Hahaha! I was cracking up the WHOLE time. That was too funny!

Sorry Daddy... you were bombarded and over thrown by these monsters. But hey... you got a shirt of the deal! Oh and sandwiches and juice.

Looks like a GREAT time. My wife would be jealous of your pool as she loves to swim. Me not so much. Then again, I would also never post a picture of me without a shirt as I am a panzon!
