Pool Table Day

This coming Thursday, the basement pool table will finally be sent away to "live on the farm". Though we rarely actually played pool, it was a faithful backdrop to Halloween parties and barbeques over the past 17 years.

The pool table was delivered and installed on June 9, 2004 by two guys that spent half the year driving around the country building pool tables. I ordered it over the Internet for $1700 after being snubbed in multiple local billiard stores by salesmen who didn't think a 24-year-old could afford a table and refused to go under $5000. (This is like the movie, Pretty Woman, except that I never went back to rub it in and I'm more attractive than Julia Roberts).

Over the past few years, it was mainly a tool to distract children or keep food from falling on the ground. We finally decided to get rid of it to free up more family space in the basement. The pool table light ($240 from a 2004 Yahoo sales page) will remain, albeit cranked up to the ceiling so no tall people hit their heads. Underneath will be the big round table for poker and kid crafts. Surrounding the area will be additional storage space for all of the toys that Maia gets from her grandparents.
