It's Just a Rocking Chair.


That graphic depicts just how I feel today. Wanting friends to drop by, sit a spell, chat. I might even fix you some tea.

Feeling in the rocking chair mood this Saturday. Of course, there's no room for my wonderful rocking chair in this apartment. Phooey. But, she surely did serve me well over the years. Back when I wasn't old and needing a rocking chair. hehe. Here I am in said chair looking at a picture album.

I found this rocker at an estate sale in Alabama. Elbert could not figure out why I just had to have it. But, he ended up enjoying it for years to come. In 2008 he rocked his latest grandson in that rocker.
 
Another grandson liked that chair as well. He could sit comfortably even while holding his Mom.
 
Yes, that chair holds lots of memories. Hmmm.... I think I will see if there is one spot in this apartment that needs it. I sure hope so.

I love your rocking chair and the special memories. You are blessed to have these treasured photos. My 38yr old niece recently gave her childhood rocking chair to my great niece who is 2.
Maybe you can find a spot for the chair - I once had one in the corner of my kitchen and enjoyed rocking while waiting for things to come out of the oven.

I've always liked rockers. I liked being rocked, and now I like to rock my new great-grand-daughter :) The only thing I bought on our recent trip were some cushions for my rocker, which was passed down from my parents. Enjoy your rocker!

I hope you find some place for it. I have one that my dad rocked me in as a small child. There will always be room for it in my home.

Favorite pieces of furniture are like friends and hope yours finds a spot in your new place, Latane, especially as it holds so many fond memories of people who sat in it.

I have some things that will be hard to part with also. How about in your bedroom? At least you would still have it with you. Love the pic of Elbert!
