1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did).

2.  What color is your front door?

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws?

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)

Cruise. Like Disney but it is not a relaxing vacation IMO.

You always plan such exciting vacations.  Have fun on the cruise with your friends, You social butterfly you!

My sister bought a house last Summer with an inground pool.  Her pool remains open all Summer which she spends a lot of time cleaning too, Oh the pleasures...  I'm thinking a cover is off season only. 

Yeah, not so sure why that would be a question for a pool open for the summer. I don't know many people who don't close their pools in the winter either. It would be a MESS when trying to open it back up.

Awww..thanks. Would love to go to other places. Even tried out Hawaii on the hubby and he doesn't want to go on such a long flight to get there and there are no all inclusives in Hawaii. One day we will go to Europe and would prefer, again, a cruise. 

You are funny. I am sure we will make new friends too as facebook is great now when meeting new people as you can still continue to speak to them and make plans with them for future things. I always wonder what happened to the couples on our honeymoon cruise as no one exchanged addresses or phone #'s to call.

I lied. Evidently my front door is a creamy beige, almost off-white.

If you live in Houston you don't close it..  ;)  Seriously, The reason we stayed away from a home with a pool was all the maintenance and upkeep down there.  At least in the midwest there is a season you can actually shut the pool down and cover it.

Too bad you're over VB. I just got a free beach towel for ordering a garment bag and large duffel for my upcoming trips--apparently they're running a promotion online. I put the stuff in my cart a while ago and kept forgetting to check out near my wallet. Imagine my surprise when I went to check out yesterday and scored a free towel! While Coach remains my go-to source for everyday bags, VB is fun for travel and I desperately needed a garment bag.

Not a problem.  For 6 full months after I moved in, I would be inside and look at the dark stained door and think, "Wow.  I thought the door was white."  And outside I'd look at the door and think, "Wow.  I thought the door was a dark stain.

Six. Full. Months.  Before I realized it's both.

Interesting way to look at it; I've never thought about it that way.  I've always felt if I were going to go to the trouble and expense of having a pool, I would have to live somewhere that I could keep the pool open all year.

Fly to LAX, spend a night in LA, then fly to Hawaii. We stayed at the Grand Wailea on Maui and loved it. Hawaii is, without a doubt, the most beautiful state.
