I kept it for several years on the front stoop with pots of red geraniums in it.
It was just the right rusty and crusty planter for the little table that sat there.
Unfortunately the little table gradually weathered into nothing and could no longer support the Poloron.
I have always wondered why it was "Poloron" instead of "Polaron".
Off to the shed it went and soon became shoved under and hidden in the murky depths.
Either zinc or galvanized inside.
I cannot tell the difference.
The square container is still there.
It was time to clean it up and send it off to the booth to find a new home.
This is what it looked like just out of the shed minus the spider webs.
(Yes, Danni, there were live spiders crawling around in there!)
The back of it was rarely exposed to the elements so it stayed the green color.
The top is aluminum with a pressed design.
After a thorough washing and sanding the little cooler shows a lot of character.
I did not take all the rust away and did not wax it.
I will leave those decisions for the new owner.
The cooler is looking quite spiffy here.
I am thinking red geraniums.
Maybe with a bright Blue Daze.
Some white begonias.
NO, NO, NO!
I have a new plan for the porch and yard.
I am sticking to my promise to downsize.
OOOOH, look how nicely the inside cleaned up.
(No more spiders, Danni!)
The little cooler proudly wears its name on the handle.
I hope someone buys it soon because I may cave in and bring it back home for the summer.
Of course that would mean we will still have a summer.
Stay warm and safe during this next winter storm.
Old Man Winter must be consuming too many energy drinks.
