LOVE SUMMER are happy campers 'cause it's here. I know that many people are really happy about this... while I'm inside the house dreaming of a White Christmas.
So, I have been thinking about this DISLIKE (the Prospector says I shouldn't hate things.) that I have for Summer and how I could remedy the situation. The heat definitely affects my judgement but...
I think I have found the answer.
It's fenced. It's easy to access from the front yard and we already have a retaining wall above it.
We could use this area, behind the house, too.
So, what is this idea of mine that would make the summer more palatable? Well...
This is what I have in mind.
Here is another idea.
Or, how about this one...
And this one...
I guess we would have to remodel the house to go with this yard, but that would be no problem. We just need about $100,000. for the pool and a couple hundred thousand more for the remodel.
So, I have a plan.
I could make a plea on my blog. You know, like the "kickstarter" program where people donate to a good cause. I could even have a raffle. The prize would be a weekend on the mountain with swimming privileges.
I figure if all my friends, family, all my followers and even the folks that I "friend" on Facebook, donate five to ten thousand dollars apiece, I could have this whole thing done by next summer and never have to "dislike" summer again.
But, just in case this doesn't pan out, I have a plan "B".
Let me know which plan you like the best. I'm open to all inquires and questions.
The heat affects my judgement, as I said before, so I may not have the right perspective on this.
p.s. I do like plan "A" the best.
