One clear sign the economy is roaring along is the sudden proliferation of businesses that couldn’t exist without a profusion of expendable income. 
On a recent tip to Charleston I was invited to join a group at ‘a bar for dog and beer lovers’ (their tag line). A monetized dog park was my take. 
The place had my hackles up from the get-go. It felt just a little too affluential, a place to be seen with your dog and drink some amazing craft brews! 
It occurred to me I was being a bit of a curmudgeon, so I settled in with a beer to watch the dogs play and chat with new friends. I didn’t have to wait long for the show.
One by one, the dogs, unattended by their well-groomed owners began to urinate and defecate in a chain reaction. The view was now non-stop dogs relieving themselves, smelling the excrement of other dogs, and joining in the fun. 
Just as I was about to give up on the experience a young man came bounding out to play with the dogs. Lubricated by dog urine, he slid effortlessly into the astroturf in one elegant motion. 
In that moment, I thought, maybe there is something for me here after all.

I had a ball at this find in the desert. A public pool made of natural water. Perfect temperature, lovely views. I jumped off this diving board at least twenty times, but worried it was going to break off each time. The entire operation is crumbling.
