    Well, sonny, I hate to mention this, but you'd need a much bigger kiddy pool and real BLIMP now!:rofl2:

    My brother and I had the same Goodyear blimp hanging from our ceiling in the late 70's to early 80's in our room.

    There was a time when I was having a "weight challenge" and suspect I looked a lot like the Badyear Blimp :whew:

    I've lost a LOT of helium since then ;)

    Dito:rofl:


    Cool Vidio, I remember my first kidy pool..... was a lil row bout complete with paddles. In the city Mom filled it up with water and it was a blast. I couldn't wait till we went to the farm so I could try it out in the pond. Wasn't exatly a very stable bout pool though.... My cousin and sister put me a adult life jacket and away I rowed and flipped.... slipped rite through the life jacket and I remember staring at it while going down! Next thing I felt was my hair being ripped out as my cousin dove in to get me!:p Next day I was tought how to swim..... My cousin threw the dog in the pond and told me to watch...... then he threw me in screaming "SWIM LIKE THE DOG":yup:. After I mastered the dog paddle we spent most of the day teaching me how to float and swim proper.

    It's been awhile, but I've noticed they don't make kiddy pools as large as they used to!:D

    Every summer we buy the grandkids a little pool, usually lasts about two weeks before it pops or the dogs eat it or it's filled with dirt and grass...bust out another 29.99 for two more weeks of cheap entertainment.

    Even those hard plastic pools are only good for a few weeks. I'll bet me and you would look cool sitting in one of those sippin beer in July! Wouldn't be room for even a tiny Blimp!:rofl2:

    Redneck biker story-------------- Biker friend called "Nasty" had his own birthday party and invited a bunch of biker type friends. Someone put a large blue tarp in a truck with 8-ft bed and filled it with water---Cold water from hose. People got in and played while drinking and partying. This was before I'd ever seen this done before. Dollie jumped in. But I never get that drunk!:drink:
    Don't remember any toy blimps or rubber duckies in there.

    I was at a 3 day mini-truck run in Parker, AZ and someone filled a Toyota bed with ice and beer then cruised around the circle. I imagine if it had not been 115 degrees outside it would have been drunken hypothermia time, but every time they passed I did snag a beer from a girl in a bikini!

    :dance:

    We should be closer. We've had an exciting life. :drink:
    We still hang out with young people because old people are so boring.
