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)

I'll definitely have at least a pool service; skimming the top is about as far as I would be willing to go on my own.

SIL has a pool service. Skimming the top is all she does, too.

You should check out Coldwater Creek if you need some new clothes for your cruise, Spring! It is a store I usually love but I went there a couple of weeks ago to buy a pair of black slacks and they didn't have any. Everything in the store looked like it was designed for middle-aged women going on a cruise. Lots of bright colored capris, bright colored patterned shirts, maxis and swimsuit cover ups, etc. had to go next door to Talbots to get my black slacks!

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.

Yeah, we did that when I was a kid traveling with my parents. The plane right is either 6 hours to LA and then 6 hours to Hawaii or a few hours to Chicago and then 9 to Hawaii. None of them sound good to my hubby right now lol.

Yes

2.  What color is your front door?

Red

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

Popping tags? Sure.

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

I have a lot of purses. None of them violate trademark laws. ETA: I counted. Counting the ones I use regularly: 12. 2 VB, 9 Coach, and 1 that was a gift from a family member. I use VB baby bags as totes now (love the bottle holder pockets to hold water bottles) and have a Missoni for my yarn stuffs. I'm not counting wristlets, b/c I have an obscene amt of those. I use them as wallets in my larger bags.

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

Disney

Thanks Bord, all good with my clothes and bathing suits, etc. I am awaiting on one more dress that I ordered as it was on backorder and got another one.

These are for dinner. The rest of the time is bathing suits, casual wear, capris, etc.

We had a Creepy Crawley.  We skimmed, brushed the sides down once in a while, and threw in chlorine tabs. that was about it.

My edit did not show up. I counted bags. Among the ones I use regularly--I have 12. 2 VB, 9 Coach and one large colorful bag that was a gift from a family member. I use two VB baby bags as totes (love the bottle pockets for bottle holders now) and have a Missoni tote for my yarn stuffs. I'd say handbags are my weakness, but then again, so are shoes and clothes and jewelry. I like pretty stuff.
