We're All Wet

Today Noah and I visited the City of Fallon Municipal Swimming Pool. It was built in 1940 by the President Roosevelt's Work Projects Administration. Part of the president's New Deal that was designed to help bring the country out of the Great Depression and bring jobs and income to the unemployed. I wonder if any of today's stimulus packages will bear such testament 70 years from now.
The testament today is, this is the same pool I swam in 28 years ago and where Georgia grew up swimming in with her sisters and brother. It was another nice way to introduce our children to the kind of life their mother had growing up and one more place their parents had been during their early courtship, without boring them to death.
Noah and I jump off the diving board, swam, he tried to drown me...more than once...and splash, frolic and have a great time. And by the way, the water was great. I hope the pool is still here in another 70 years and I hope Noah will remember this small moment in time.
