Just don't sit in that chair...

There are so many stores of the old ways isn't there. If you're rural enough the stories live on. Excellent.

Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

That chair reminded me of the ladder in Jim's post. :-)

The old chair looks as if it has seen many a story pass by. It is well displayed with the o;ld fence.

I'm afraid that a chair with a back that straight would make me uncomfortable, rather than contemplative!

Sandra Cox said...

Hopefully, you do find peace.....

Nice chair picture, Kathe. Just ask her, or stay and listen, she's a lot to tell of what she's seen in all those years. Mrs. Jim has an old broken porch rocker, we might put that one out to pasture like you did yours.

It i since to see a snowy Shasta! We need to sit in an old chair sometimes to contemplate and reflect on the many blessings we have received...

colleen said...

Ah yes, It would stop me. I want to play that chair like a washboard.

Love the chair, utility becoming art. Really like your header!

Josie Two Shoes said...

I love both of these - one about time gone by, one timeless!
