Smooth Sailing

Charli Mills challenges us to get all wet this week with a topic taking us across the water. I smiled immediately for it brought back the memories of the family swimming pool. If you enjoy being prompted to write AND to smile, then you must FOLLOW the Carrot Ranch and give it a go!

It was the summer of 1968. The year the Detroit Tigers won the pennant and the year our family bought a pool for our backyard!

The pool store threw in a variety of pool toys as a bonus, one of which was a six-foot Styrofoam surfboard. Temptation got the better of us and as long as our parents were at work…

We used the deck to hold it in place and with a running start, we’d jump onto the board. The force sent us sailing into the opposite pool wall. Oh yeah, we were never bored on that board!

Once the rain began

It was smooth sailing no more
