Rocking chairs on the deck...and the livin' is easy-

We decided that we wanted rocking chairs on our deck so we priced them during spring sales and found a store offering them at a great price.  We wanted to buy 4 so we went to Grand Island and looked at them in the store.  They were exactly what we wanted so we "took them".  Mark went to get the pickup and I stayed at the door to receive the chairs.  Well, Mark pulled up in the pickup and the guys from the back showed up at the door with boxes vs. chairs. OMG!  That meant that we had to assemble them. I was sure that Mark would want to reject them.  I went outside with the store clerk and Mark checked the rearview mirror and I could tell that he wasn't a happy camper. The boxes sat on the deck for some time. Then one day he got them together in an afternoon.  They are exactly what we wanted...and a nice addition to the cottage.
Once we get the cottage and deck painted, they will really sit pretty.  Can't wait for you to join us on the deck with a lovely  bottle of wine...and some competitive spirit with horseshoes.

Check out our local winery just 6 miles from our
place...  The winery website will show you some of the vista that is ours.  This is the prairie and it is beautiful in its own way.  There is some lovely wine that grows here in Nebraska.  It isn't all CA or Europe wine that counts. Local can be really good. If you don't believe me, you'll just have to come visit to check it out.

Hey Delores.........tell Mark he did a great job on the chairs. I can't wait to join you to rock away and sip some of the lovely wine. Nothing quite like a nice rocker on a porch. The country life sure fits the 2 of you.
