East Jordan Iron Works


The days in Round Rock have gotten so hot that even the neighborhood kids are staying inside instead of swimming.  At around 4:00 pm today, I headed for the pool.  I looked both ways, crossed the street, and trekked across this awesome manhole cover from East Jordan Iron Works – “the world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of manhole covers,” among other things.  Pretty impressive, huh?


Turtle Creek Pool II


It is back in the pool for me.  It has been forever since I swam laps, so today’s 20 minute session was taken slow and easy.  Hello self – you should be doing this several times a week, if not every day.  I don’t listen to self reasoning very well, but now that my first swim session of the year is done, it should be easy to return to the pool and do it again.  The cloudy weather made for a perfect, cool day.  🙂
