    We just have to wear our personal "summer" Tahitians every day, JerseyPearl My father-in-law's big, heavy compressors filled up the garage, which also held the pantry I cooked from every day, the second refrigerator, all the bikes, the surf boards, the kids beach toys ... ... ... every day there was a fuss over those compressors as we tripped over them LOL. Stay warm; we're getting another 8 inches of snow today

      And we too have a second fridge in the garage (well actually inside the laundry room which is off the garage) and two washers and dryers...one for clothes, the other for beach towels, bathing suits and anything else used outdoors! No snow here yet, but we expect it to start soon.

        Oh, JerseyPearl that brings back decades of memories ... when the kids (5 cousins, only one of which was mine) were really little, they used to get a good dunking in the utility tub inside the back door to get off as much beach sand as possible before going in the real tubs LOL.

          We just got a good dousing with the garden hose to remove the sand. Always wanted to be first because the water was warmer from the hose sitting in the sun.

            We had an outside shower, and there was the same fight over that sun warmed water, Marianne

              Love the stories! It's extremely dark outside because it's getting ready to rain. I long for a really good cleansing, but when we get rain, most of the time it's very light - just enough to raise the oil residue on the roads and make them slick.

              I should be thankful that I don't have to worry about freezing pipes and shoveling snow. I hope everyone is warm and safe.

                When we redid our house, we put in a hot water tap for the outdoor shower! What a difference that made...but as the saying goes, true Jersey Girls have sand between their toes!

                And now that my kids are older (one graduating college, one in college, and one about to go to college) it's wonderful having "beach week" at our house every summer. Any given weekend, we usually have a few visitors...love the Californians who come and discover that the Shore is really great, and not anything like the Turnpike, or MTV. Oh, and the best were my daughter's friends from the UK...they had no idea that you could actually swim on the beaches here! They only ever heard of the Hamptons, Martha's Vineyard, and Florida.

                  Mirrors our experiences exactly, JerseyGirl When those same 5 little babies (only 1 is mine LOL) grew up, we had beach "summer" One morning my 90 year old mother-in-law came out for breakfast ... we had a house FULL, young people everywhere... and she said "Know what I realized? I realized every minute all night, people were awake and having a good time ... and I loved it." And yes, Californians are fun at THE SHORE

                  Thanks for your patience, GemGeek ... didn't mean to hijack this thread so far away from pearls!

                            I think it means your tastes change and when you look back, you're like, "Why did that rice strand (guy) appeal so much decades ago...?"

                            And with Facebook being fairly (relatively speaking) new -- a lot of us have reconnected with friends from decades ago without having seen them age over the decades. My daughter will see everyone age over time and not notice -- but when we reconnect, it can be quite a shock!

                                Ok, thanks :-). For some reason my brain just wouldn't complete the sentence by itself. Well, not in any way that made sense.
