I had a pool table at my other house, but back then I used to shoot a lot of pool.

I want a hot tub, or a jacuzzi. I've given this more than a passing thought over the years.

A boat, either sail or power.

It's a toss up between an inground pool or hot tub.

Well, let's see. I have two "wants," one of which is a thing/person, the other a concept/process(?).

In the old Robert Wagner series, Hart to Hart, the Harts had a manservant-type guy, Max, who did just about anything they asked. I have always said I wanted a "Max."

The other is something that, when I enjoy it, which is once a week in good weather, it to go to bed with fresh sheets that have been dried on the line outside. The sweet, fresh fragrance is just sooooo nice and the texture of the sheets is so much better than those dried in the dryer. Our bed room smells so good for at least two days. Then the magic goes away.

Now...my want here is to have those sheets put on my bed EVERY night. Omigosh, I'd feel so pampered.

What I really want right now is a weekend in a B&B somewhere by the seaside on my own!
Just to sleep all day and drink Cocktails and eat food that I did not have to cook myself lol!

I always wanted a fireplace in my kitchen. But, one that I could use to cook on also. Something I could put a grate on and bbq indoors all year long. Also with an oven on the side right in the stone. I saw one many years ago where the hearth was almost counter top height. We have long winters here, and I spend lots of time in the kitchen so I would use it all the time for heating and cooking. I have an older house and its not worth the investment because we don't plan on being here after my daughter gets through high school.

My dream kitchen is an old European style with a wall of stone. I'm not big into shiny appliances and granite, or dark woods. Give me terra cotta and old, well worn counters any day...

Rocklobster,
that kitchen sounds great... If I would have a house, I want that, too!
Very large and a big wood oven...

But that was not what I thought of when I found this thread..
I always wanted to play the bagpipes since I was 14, and what to say?
I'm on the way of learning it.. hope the smallpipe arrives within the next few weeks and then practice, practice and more practice..
My plan is to get the "real pipe" next summer, I think that could be possible... ;)

and with the Billard Table.. no Pool, but Snooker ;o)

and you should wish for earplugs for your neighbors, cara.

i learned to play the pipes in college. very noisy, even when you get good at them.
lol, i was never good, nor graduated college.


i've always wanted 2 things: first, a boat. either a big, powerful bass boat for the lakes, or a boston whaler with a cabin for the ocean.

my other wish, one which i've had since i was a little kid, was to have a giant, saltwater pool in my back yard so i could swim with dolphins and rays.

The only thing I really want is a cast iron piggy bank made by the economy foundry in Syracuse, New York.
