When I was a young man, I was not entirely into athletic interests like most guys & young people are, & that actually hasn’t changed, however even so, I was active, which has changed because I am now older & have a couple of chronic pain conditions.
Quite frankly, the main exercise that I entirely like anymore is swimming.
That is why I am so excited to learn that my rather small town has decided to undertake pool construction! I live in a bedroom community outside a small-to-medium sized city, & in order to go swim laps, I have to drive 45 hours to get to the town pool in my neighboring city, and because my little town is tiny, I never had any idea they would consider municipal pool construction, but I consistently secretly hoped either the county, city, or some private investor would take on pool construction with a vengeance, then in this day & age, pool construction can be quite involved, & I think that’s okay, but I will be enthusiastic with a self-explanatory rectangular pool with some lap lanes that can be taken down for the occasional water aerobics classes; A lot of pool construction involves ornate project design. Pool construction can include spas, splash zones for boys, locker rooms & other facilities, waterfalls, fountains, beach-like sloped entries, & who knows what else. All of these things are lovely, of course, however I am just excited that there is pool construction for a public pool happening at all. I am not looking for all that fancy stuff; all I need is a locale to swim & change clothes. I want to be first in the water once that pool construction becomes an actual pool.
