Not much going on around here.  Sam has been fighting a losing battle with the swimming pool.  It's still green with algae growing on the walls.  Saturday a week ago, Carol and I were going to Longview, so I filled a fruit jar with pool water and took it to a pool place.  Came home with instructions on what to do.  Sam didn't have all the required chemicals so took another sample along on Monday and talked to the manager himself.  He's been diligently working on it this past week and the walls are clearing up a little...but it was so far gone we may not even get to dunk our toe in it before cold weather starts.

He decided to order new filters (old ones are 10 years old) which should arrive Thursday.

We did celebrate our 15th anniversary. Sam would not tell me where we were going to eat, but I knew not to dress for a night club...we don't go dining and dancing...besides, we don't have night clubs around here, we have beer joints. :D

When he headed east, I was pretty sure we were headed to Lamache's in Jefferson.  But he stopped at Wildflower Restaurant in Hughes Springs - a diner.  A diner I'm not that fond of.  I looked at him with a WTH look and he started laughing as he pulled through the parking lot and back to the highway.

I had Chicken Diavolo and he had Shrimp Lamache's.  DELICIOUS!

Happy Anniversary to the both of you! Sam sounds like a hoot with his sense of humor. :) Good luck with the pool ordeal.
