    Bummer: Painted in a corner

    The painters just finished staining my house and deck. I was looking forward to a nice hot weekend around the pool. This has been a horrible year for owning a pool. I never even got in until after the fourth of July.

    When the painters finished and we are drinking a celebratory pitcher of beer from a fresh keg I just got, he tells me I should stay off the deck for two days. Two days! Now I don't mind the temporary inconvenience of walking around the house in a side gate to get to the pool. But the devastating news is that my path from the pool to the keg cooler has be severed. I can't walk through the house dripping wet to refill. What am I going to do? This is tragic.

    cooler with wheels of course.

    I hate having to walk for a beer.. even if there is a short cut over a deck/patio.

    roll that thing up to the pool side.

    sounds pretty rough. Keg, pool... I feel your pain.

    How about a floating keg cooler.

    Periodic keg-stands. Get your money's worth when you have to make that extra walk.

    Re: Bummer: Painted in a corner

    It's simple my friend.......

    1. Attach clothesline at the top of the door going out to your deck.
    2. Tie other end of clothesline to the nearest tree on other side of the deck after you run the clothesline through the wire handle of a clean and more importantly, beerworthy pail.
    3. tie rope to the pail so you can summon the wife to pull the pail in when refill is needed and then pull out to you in the shade under the tree so you can enjoy the site of newly stained deck and house.

    Sucks to be you dude...I'd sell the place and move. At least you should be able to sue the painter for causing you mental anquish...

    Yes, I was kind of hoping someone on this board would volunteer to be my cabana boy. Or cabana girl, for that matter.
