Not So Fast! Pros And Cons Of Having A Swimming Pool In West Texas
Let me start by saying in my defense, I got my pool in the middle of the pandemic. I was homeschooling my kiddos, they needed something to do for 'P.E.' and I needed them out of my hair for a couple of hours a day.

To say gas prices are up is the understatement of the year! I doubt anyone is filling up for less than 50 bucks these days, no matter what kind of car you drive. I see the gas stations with 'cheaper gas' lined up 5 and 6 cars deep. At that point one has to decide, do you jump in the line of cars, or do you pay 10 or more cents extra a gallon and just head on to the next? Which is the lesser of 2 e
