Pool Party Today

So, some friends of mine are having a pool party today, and graciously wanted to host CR's "public" 18th birthday party. Every year I can go, I go down to the Dollar Store or Five Below, and spend $20-30 on some assorted pool toys. Usually cheap squirt guns, some float-able toys like sharks, boats, and whatnot. I share them with everyone who comes, which is a crowd of about 20-25 people. And I did that again this year.

But I also wanted to bring my two bubble machines. I wanted to make sure they still worked, so I tested them this morning. Well, my multi-bubble machine (like Lawrence Welk was famous for) is busted. The pump isn't strong enough to get the bubbles up in the rings and fan, and I don't know why. I think the motor has problems because it's also a lot louder than I remember. I guess I could take it apart and try and fix it, but I don't have time.

The "large bubble maker" does work, which is good. If I had to choose between the two, that was the one I wanted to work. Instead of hundreds of small bubbles, it releases a few BIG ones each pass, and that's pretty cool to watch.

And really, how often do I get to use bubble machines in my life? Not enough, I tell you.
