The Never Ending Swimming Pool Construction

For about a month now, a neighbour down the street has been installing an in ground pool. That means that for one month, it looks as though the street has been having major construction. Trucks everywhere. Construction crew everywhere. Dirt everywhere.

All for one little pool.

It's been noisy, with all of the trucks that have had to participate in this adventure. Today, there is a long flatbed truck, a rectangular cube type truck, a dump truck, a cement truck, a forklift type vehicle, various pickups.

And lots of half clad men running back and forth from the backyard to the front.

The grass is ruined too, since they had to rip up some of it to create a runway for what I call the R2D2 transporter.....a little forklifty type of thing that moves materials around. It zips back and forth with great speed and regularity.

By now I assume the pool is in, and that the current work being done is to fill in with cement. But who knows. Maybe there is another month of work yet to take place.

I think that with all of the noise and disruption that they've caused in Sleepy Hollow, they should have one huge pool party, and invite all of the neighbours that have been affected.

*fat chance that will happen*

Happy Summer arrival y'all.....

I think your idea that they should have a big pool party is excellent!

My family had a pool put in, I don't remember anything about it though, I was only 4 at the time.
