We can't afford a jacuzzi (she knows that too) but her suggestion was reassuring.

Here's a spa that you CAN afford for your new garden, John.  I also recommend it to Jbee/DF, perfect in your desert setting.  You can get it almost anywhere, including Amazon, for less than $400US. We have two, one at the country property oasis, and one at the condo patio.  My brother just got one at his lake house in Michigan.  Plugs into a standard electrical outlet and maintains 104F!

Have fun soaking in the spa, naked!

Have you tried the "jet spa" or just the bubble producer? Are the jets powerful and placed well? How can 210 gallons and four people fit into these things at 58 inches X 28 inches?
I'd have to understand the chlorine dispenser coupled with the salt water system, salt water is great stuff.

Intex makes good reputable stuff. DF has had a series of air mattresses by them and they are not built to last. Unless you give up sex and just lie still, They seem to rupture and bloat out in less than a year.

Any feed back on ultraviolet deterioration? Do they stay in the shade, or do they double as sunbathing stations?

Gotta look into this more, it sounds right.

Looks like a giant cake!
Good option if we nearly run out of money, Larry.  I've saved the link, thanks.

No use speculating on getting jacuzzis until we get contracts exchanged.  Which at current rate may never happen!

John,

I know a number of people who have the Lay-z-spa equivalent (see here) and swear by them. Most have built pergolas or use a simple canvas canopy over them for shade.

Have fun,


Ian.

Again, thanks for the link, Ian - saves me looking up the UK sources.  Duly saved.

All this jacuzzi talk arises from the fact that if ever we get free from the criminal inefficiency, ridiculous error rate, lack of basic knowledge, inaction, sloppiness and zero customer care of the lawyers doing conveyancing (and I am being very generous and reserved here), the downsize may yield a few quid to do a few renovations on the nouveau residence. So far we have a wish list which adds up roughly to a second house added to the existing property!!  Where the jacuzzi will end up on the priorities list remains to be seen!  It may have to be a tin bath in the garage and a bicycle pump for the bubbles!  :o

Prior to sitting in the sun discussing these castles in the air, I appeared in swimming trunks.  "I'm wearing these for you y'know"  I remarked.
"Yes I gather that, thank you." she responded.  "Won't be needed if and when we get to the new house," I quipped.  "Hmmm" she riposted.

I got plenty of naked sunbathing time too between frenzied calls to the lawyers and realtors!
The state of the legal profession in the UK, in my not inconsiderable experience with it, beggars belief.  A friend of ours also trying to move house at the moment got to exchange of contracts and in attempting to do so discovered that one of the lawyers had been conveying the wrong house!!

It's been a bit of an unfocused summer, so far.

I haven't done much other than at home nudity. When the temps cooperate, other activities interfere.
Even my home brewing has suffered. I haven't brewed anything in 3 months. Good thing I had a good stock laid up.

John, I am bewildered at  the level of lawyer interfere . . . (oops) participation. I assume that when a contract is involved a lawyer is too. The last time we moved, 22 yrs. ago, we only spoke to the realtor and the mortgage company. Sorry to hear of your recent exposure to them.

Direct contact with lawyers is not advised. Realtors are motivated to get the paperwork done correctly.

Unfortunately estate agents (the UK equivalent of realtors) only do the matching of buyer and seller and do not do any of the transfer paperwork.
You can do it yourself in theory but in practice hardly anybody does it.

In my case the solicitor acting for me on my last purchase spotted something in the deeds which differed from the version supplied by the estate agent and saved me from potentially expensive problems later.

Better, actually got out today. Walked around the Three Shires Head where Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire meet. Quite a few people about but it was deserted up on Cheeky Hill. All in all a walk of about eight miles with about 50% as nature intended. Another great day out with warm sunshine.

A naked walk on Cheeky Hill! How appropriate and serendipitous!

July started well for me, but as the month went on it got worse until at times it felt more like autumn than summer. My wish for lots more sun didn't really materialise unfortunately. Just a typical English summer month...

JBee,
Hope you are ok weather-wise .  Just read reports of severe flooding in Tucson area, Pima County.
Are you dry and comfortable?

Highs have been above 110F the past few days. It's difficult to get motivated to drive 40+ miles for a short spell of a walk, before having to call it quits when the temp gets too high by 9:30 am.

The alternative is to leave for the hike before sun-up. I've not hiked naked in the dark before.

I haven't heard of any such reports. I'll ask around. It is definitely green and Arizona monsoon time. We've been in the tooleys of Arizona since the 18th with no weather report other than the forecast that we left with. We just got back this evening. It had rained since we left, by evidence of the dirt driveway. We decided to change plans during a part of our trip due to flash flooding on the 20th. That will be posted as a trip report in a couple of weeks. Wet, or dry, both, we have been comfortable, naked the last six days of free range exploration and holiday.

Thanks for looking out for us,
Jbee

Six days of FRN. No clothing at all? I am envious.

Reports and pictures after your recovery, please.

July?  Had a great deal of FRN in July ... the annual 2500 mile round trip driving naked to Michigan and back ... with 5 days naked kayaking and pontoon boat rental on Lake Quachita in Arkansas ... after that trip we had 3 weeks at the beach condo-timeshare (although I commuted naked to work 1-1/2 hours each way, 4 days a week) ... always naked indoors, naked early morning walks on the beach, naked late evening walks on the beach ... full moon rising and sparkling in the surf ... naked weekends on the beach, and naked evenings for about 2-1/2 hours on the beach after work ... sun on skin, water on skin, breeze on skin ... weather was most pleasant in the range 78F-92F ... it was an excellent naked month outdoors and for once, my butt is as tan as my arms ... no hint of paleness there!

We are scheduled for 2 more weeks at the beach in September!!!

Have fun, naked!
