I Can't Imagine



A two year old drowned in a backyard pool in Colleyville yesterday. Awful. The location was only referenced as the "6900 Block of Shephards Glen." Looks like a nice area. Not that that matters.

According to www.TAD.org it is 6907 Shepherds Glen in Colleyville (http://www.tad.org/Datasearch/re.cfm?Account=%28%2E%21%28LJM%285I%40H%20%0A)

You can get a 5' high childproof "pool fence" around your pool for about $2500.00. That's alot of money, mind you, but if you can afford a house with a pool, you can't afford not to have a pool fence if you have children. That's a damn shame and makes me sick, but those **cking parents who can afford a half-million dollar house (the avg value for that block of Shepherds Glen is about $550,000.00) can certainly afford a pool fence. Hell, their property tax bill is about $20,000.00 per year.

I'm surprised about the fence also, 12:42.

In that neighborhood, I'm more surprised the HOA doesn't require it.

I can't think of a single funny or smart alec thing that would be appropriate.Dear God this is awful.What did Neil Young say"There's another kid won't get to go school,won't get to be cool."

I genuinely feel for the parents but feel they were negligent.

I have a pool and had one when my two older boys were small. I was a single Mom then and a single Mom now and never left my children unattended long enough for them to get into the pool and drown.

I didn't have a fence then and didn't have a fence here until I moved out and rented my house for a while and was afraid something like this would happen and I would get sued.

While I lived in Arizona there was one of these a day and they pressed criminal charges against the parents each time.
