We don't have a pool, because...well, our backyard really can't handle one. It's about 35 feet from our back door to the harbor shore and it's uneven ground right above the water table. Too low for an in-ground pool and too uneven (and smallish) for an above ground pool. Those suck anyway.
Don't get me wrong. I love living where we do. The view is gorgeous especially around sunset. Tonight we enjoyed some cold beers on the lawn and some grilled hot dogs and french fries inside (in the AC) afterward. It was all right.
But a pool would be nice.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Cold showers at 9PM feel oh so good!
