What to do with my Frogs and their babies?

Once again, I have a swimming pool dilemna...I went to start pumping the last 3' of water out of the deep end of the broken swimming pool to get it ready to fill in.  I told the 3 froggies that were sunning themselves on the floating scraps of foam that were formerly on the walls of the pool that they were going to have to move to a new home but as I got ready to plug in the pump, I saw many fat little tadpoles popping up to the surface for a gulp of air....they are Frog Babies!

I hadn't seen them last week...but had noticed that my 6" bullfrogs seemed to be underwater more often...now I know what they were doing...having babies!  What to do with my froggie friends?  I had thought of perhaps catching the frogs with the swimming pool net and somehow transporting them to the lake down the block but what do I do with the tadpoles? ...  Read More

I'm Finally Filling In The Swimming Pool-Staying Connected

After enjoying having a wonderful backyard inground swimming pool for 20 years, I'm finally filling it in.  The pool was my special treat we built in our backyard when we moved into this home and I loved it as did my kids.  But, alas, after a mystery leak and the loss of my longtime "pool guy" I decided it was just too much trouble and cost so...I let the frogs move in and now it's time to fill it in. 

Who to hire to do this big project was the question.  You don't just go to the internet and find a "Pool Filler Inner" but after many years of having huge garage sales that drew many men for all the "guy things" I always had for sale, I had made a friend who does excavation whose phone number I'd jotted down and put in my special drawer.  Just like online, at garage sales I spend a lot of time talking about my items...  Read More

How Pacesetter Began

In Memory of Captain and Crew Of The F/V Pacesetter ~ 18 Years Ago Today~
Pacesetter on Addoway!

Not the most interesting name....yet the history of the name is Most interesting! 
I began selling online in 2002 with the ebay id of paceset9999 named after our family owned crab fishing vessel the F/V Pacesetter.  A beautiful prosperous 127' steel crabber that fished for all types of crab in Alaskan waters.  In 1996 our boat disappeared in the Bering Sea and I lost my husband and crew of 6, all in one terrible day.  No answers to my mystery were ever found, although many including me, investigated for years.  I was a single widowed mom with 2 boys and a great love of memories, history, old things....and of of course, treasure hunting.  :)
An Eclectic is what I am but the F/V Pacesetter is the keystone of my life.  Hence, the name of my first...  Read More
