Coming Attraction: L.A. pools open for biz

It's almost summer, folks, and Saturday, June 20, marks opening day for L.A. city pools.

We had a great time last summer, taking CC to the pool at Pan Pacific Park. It's clean and well-tended by the hyper-vigilant lifeguards (yeah, I even got a stern talking to for taking a pic of my child splashing with her dad. Apparently, close-ups are fine, but other 'rents may not want their kid in your frame.). And it's also really easy on the wallet -- especially if you have a library card.

Children 17 and under are free, and adults (18-64) are -- wait for it -- $2.50. That's cheaper than a grande vanilla nonfat latte! (Not that I'm forking over for too many of those these days.) Adults with a library card get a 50-cent discount. And seniors 65+ are free!

So swimsuit up, dig out the loose change from under your couch cushions and start splashing, L.A.!

Maybe you guys can come by the South Pasadena pool sometime. It's immaculate and practically empty, and not much more expensive.

That sounds great, Pat! We'll have to check it out.

"Swimsuit up."

Yeah, I was proud of that one. ;)
