Growing up we sometimes had a picnic table out in the yard, and maybe a couple of ratty old beach chairs. These days, people create real outdoor living spaces. Sister and brother-in-law Linda and Ron have the beautiful pool, and they now have this decorative gas fire set in an attractive table, big enough for drinks and appetizers. The fire provides a little warmth, but is mostly there for the pleasure of having a fire — which pleasure it richly delivers. I’m going to suggest that Sara and Ben look at one for their roof deck.
