    we used to just use brownies. they're moldable- work better than any candy bar out there. that's what we used to do... the best part is you can go swimming after all the patrons leave!

    I love how everyone from WV is assuming they know the pool/person...304 is the whole state. A lot of cities/towns, or for those from southern WV, who do not seem to use town or city names when identifying where they live: 55 counties.

    This is such a true statement. Once while another guard and I were on duty, for 45 minutes, there was ONE kd in the pool. After we'd already worked around 3 hours.
