Pool party! Can I come?

Summer is just about here. Do you live in a neighborhood where some folks have pools and others don't?Have you ever felt awkward about that? Should you ask to go swimming? You've told your neighbors to come over whenever they want - but they don't.

Here is the solution if you are the one with the pool. Have a flag in your pool area. If the flag is up anyone is welcome to come over. If the flag is not flying then it is just family time right now. Tell the neighbors your code.They will not feel like they are intruding and you know you'll not have visitors when you want private family time.

If you don't want to put up a flag, try a bright large towel over the fence or some other signal. Have a fun and safe summer.

Oh yeah, If I see your flag - we'll be right over!
