Home ownership seems to bring about the entertaining beast. That would be my partner S. He gets a little nuts about entertaining and making sure that he has enough food for everyone. In the summer everyone loves to entertain outside, and moving from a metropolis to a small town, we don’t have any patio furniture.
The deck can’t fit more than the two chairs. The only problem with the patio is that there is this nice tree above it.
Now you might be thinking, that tree could be great for some natural shade. And you would be right. But you forgot about the birds. And the pooh. I don’t think you want to entertain guests on a patio where the chances of getting poohed on are quite high.
So the dilemma is, do you really want to get new patio furniture, just to get it, and your guests poohed on? My only other thought is to get a small gazebo tent to put over it, and then scrub off said pooh in the fall when you put it away.
What would you do?
