Lulu And I Met At This Pool In The Summer Of 69
Tamaqua had a big storm yesterday. It caused a lot of mud to be washed into our old swimming pool. I worked as a life guard and met my wife there. Later - we built a home overlooking the spot where we met. We lived there 30 years and raised our two sons there.
Later Lulu became a life guard there and more years later our sons were life guards there.
Tamaqua is a small town of 8000 people in the Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania. It was a coal mining and railroading community. Both industries are virtually gone.
Added - July 2 - The people of Tamaqua took just 24 hours to drain the pool and clean out the mess. What a job well done.
