    I don't think "little" is the right adjective.....

    Maybe you could retitle it to "Here's my awesome oasis"

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks for the nice words guys. After spending 35 years in Dallas, it's really nice to finally have a pool to help with the heat. I know my 3 year old is loving it!

    It's Tahoe Blue. It's usually a little lighter but that pic was later in the day when the sun was heading down.

    Okay, unless I'm mistaken, there's never been a fire in that fireplace. And where's the gratuitous picture of the refrigerator door hanging open stuffed to the gills with bud lights? Do you need Richard and I to come down there and help you break that sucker in? Seriously though, awesome place!

    LMAO Good call on the fireplace. It was just finished in April. It's 100 degrees in Dallas, so no store carries fireplace grates, nor does sitting by an open flame sound appealing right now. We'll have to break it in this fall....if we actually have fall in Dallas.

    The fridge is packed with beer...REAL beer, not Bud Light! I'll be sure to open the door for the next pic.

    100 degrees in Dallas! That's why I always tell people I was made for Texas.
    Speaking of beer, I had the opportunity a few years back to suck down a few of your real beers at The Copper Tank Brewing Co. in Dallas. Is that place still around? Their beers were just like I like them...tall, frosty glasses of golden bubbly goodness and from what I recall the guy in charge of hiring waitresses was an over achiever as well.
