    I guess this is what happens when you don't clean you pool for a couple months and it starts to look like more of a pond. These two showed up a couple days ago and haven't left yet. They're not shy at all, they'll walk right up and take food from you. So far Cheerios seem to be the favorite.

    I'm think either new pets, or a couple of dinners.

    I get tadpoles in mine every spring. The frogs slip under the cover and do the deed. When I open it I take a net full of them and dump them into a bucket. The kids love watching them grow. The rest get flung onto the lawn and the birds gobbel them up.

    when i lived in phoenix, we'd end up with rabbits in there who had conveniently escaped the claws of a hawk. kinda messy. we got a lot of gekos too. unfortunately, we were unable to domesticate them - it would have reminded us too much of that blind kid in Dumb and Dumber, and that's just not right. Duct tape and dead things just don't go together.

    If I moved to Cali, I would swim in the winter.... Your winters are like our late spring.

    hey winters are freezing here...I think it was 68 yesterday with some clouds.:eek1::haha:

    actually we just had our winter. It rained for 1 night and got a total of 3-4inches. So I think that makes it officially spring now:D
