Snookums,

There is a shop near our house that makes dinosaurs, bears, geckos, etc. of all shapes and sizes. My wife purchased "Rap" for my birthday and he's been a member of the family ever since.

The link below is to the place that makes them.

Here is a link that might be useful: Route 66 Memories

BTW, my sister and I just drove part of route 66 from Okl City to Holbrook, Az. Stirred up Quite a few memories. So sorry that we will not drive to Cal. We stopped in Phoenix to stay with my neice's children for a week. Wish we could see the dinosaurs.

This is ONE AWESOME POOLSCAPE!!!
Proof positive that you don't have to have the biggest yard or the biggest pool to get the biggest punch.

Note to all readers,
When contemplating your backyard improvements think hard about future improvements. There will never be a time like right now to step up to the plate and hit a home run like this. It'll never be cheap, but it'll be money very well spent.

See Ya,
Kelly

Hi All,

I added a few new pictures to the Pool to the web site on pages 46 and 47.

Also, our Fireplace is now famous. It has been included in a new book called "Fire Outdoors" by Tina Skinner & Melissa Cardona. Hundreds of great outdoor fireplaces.

Here are a couple of the new photos.

Truly lovely pool but wouldn't enjoy my neighbors 5 feet from my back yard. I'd feel like they were watching me!
