Back to Backwashing

with 2 comments

Susan and Nat are cleaning the house like hasn’t been done in ages, so I figure I’ll make myself useful.

Is this the first time I’ve backwashed the pool completely on my own (except for when Susan came out to check the chlorine tablet level, which I would have checked on anyway)? Either I need to write down the instructions (like, how much powder to add at the end, and how to put the pump back in the service mode), which I too easily forget, or else I need to do this myself more often so maybe it sinks in. Susan’s been doing too much of the pool maintenance far too long, I’m ashamed to admit.

Through the remainder of the week, we need to shock the pool, then backwash it again. Which Susan will definitely have to do, or at least supervise, since I’m clueless how to shock a pool. See?

Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved.


The link for that quote works this morning when I’m mouthing the words. I can’t guarantee it will work tomorrow, since whatever idiot manages Bob‘s website these days seems to think that every new Dylan album is occasion for completely changing every single URL of every song, every album, and every other piece of his site, without so much as a redirect or any other telltale sign. Nice way to cover, “Please don’t let on that you knew me when,” since any link anyone ever did to anything specific is rendered meaningless.

So when I never finish the labyrinth behind the panels of this room, staple a piece of the blame on how I have to keep going back and rewiring some of the circuits, for no other reason than I want it to work the way I want it to.
