A brand spank'n new chair

Ha....I got me a new chair.
I could just leave it at that, but I'm gonna tell ya HOW I got this new chair.

Ya see, I was sit'n here yesterday morn'n, try'n to figger out what I was gonna do for the rest of the day. Sadie Mae start bark'n her fool head off. "What the hell Sadie Mae, what are you bark'n at"? Robert walks in the door. "Are ya hungry daddy"? We headed down the road to Douglasville, bout 20 miles to I-Hop, by way of back roads through redneck country. Man boy howdy, you talk bout eat'n too much....I was stuffed. Had me a breakfast sampler....two of everthing.

"Robert, I need some pencils, pull into that Office Depot over there". They ain't got my brand of pencils (Mirado Black Warrior). I sitted in a office chair wait'n for Robert....not the one above. OD is marked off the list.

We pull into Lowes lumber sell'n place. Maybe they have some C.H. Hanson Sure Point finish pencils.  But I'm look'n at foldable lawn chairs, they don't got the pencils, an' they don't got foldable lawn chairs. I need to replace these POS Academy ones that only last two years. I suppose they would last longer if'n ya didn't put 'em out on the lawn. Lowes is marked off the list for pencils an' lawn chairs.

"Daddy, ya wanna ride to Carrollton Georgia"? Back roads for the next hour or so, I spy a Staples store. Pencils cross my mind. I find the pencil section. They don't got my pencils. I'm need'n to sit down for a minute. There's a office chair sit'n there on display. "Oh my god, this is one comfortable chair". So's I buys it. We take it home, put it together an' throws that other chair out the door.

Last night I sit in that chair watch'n TV. Dang, this feels good. Nice lumbar support. Soft seat 'specially made for my ach'n butt. My pain level falls. Fast foward to this morn'n. I ain't all crookit this morn'n. Pain level is below a easy 4. I feel like I can do something productive today.
Bet at your own risk.

Oh oh, it was freak'n cold this morn'n. Lower 50's or there bouts. I would welcome a nice 90 deg day any time compared to "freez'n to death". 63 degs as I type at 1pm.

  1. That sure does look like a comfortable chair. Now, maybe your back will get all better without surgery. We can always hope so, can't we.

  2. I love your story telling Billy Bob...only you can tell a story about a chair and with your herbs and spices...make it interesting. With that said, I am glad you found a comfortable chair that helps your pain level.

    Went into town at the crack of dawn (7:50 a.m.) and the sign at the bank said it was 66 degrees...loved it! We have a cold front so it is only going to get to 82 or there about today. Don't freeze to death :D

    1. Shoot, I could catch me up some fish in that kind of weather. Enjoy it while you can....it will change overnight.

      All my food is cooked with spices an' herbs. Tastes soooo much better that way.

  3. That is one fine looking chair. I could drowse one like it. Heck, I'm so tired I could drowse on a cinder block right now. Up again since 3:10am. Boy, is my sleep schedule fouled up royally.

    Now what about your favorite pencil? You've left me hanging :>) Guess you didn't find any.

    It has been almost bitter here today; wind was fierce. I rushed around bringing my plants inside, then helped neighbor pick all her vegetables. Down to 31F tonight, real feel 20F. But my elevation will be several degrees lower. Weird and too early for this. Then I check Accu-Weather and see no temp below 39 for one night up until November 18; mostly lows in 40s and 50s. Yep, now that is really weird. Makes me sick to think of so much unripened food hanging on vines and plants to be ruined tonight - bushels at least. I totally dislike cold too Billy Bob. My feet are aching tonight.

  4. Good you got the chair, we are experiencing another heat wave near 80 in an area of the country the pacific northwest that gets 200 plus days of inclement weather, the polar vortex will soon arrive just like in 1988 and 1978 both years of summer than wham bam thank you Mame, we got the snow and ice in October of 1978 and also November 1988 and it seemed to last forever, oh, well nothing I can do about the weather at all, just endure or love it or leave it.! Glad you are not going to get any operation, my hubs back hurts all the time, the surgeons said he might be paralyzed for life so he just has heat and ice on it and some advil now and then better than being paralyzed I think and so does he..Take care soon it will get cold where you are and you will return to the west of Texas and it will be warm and nice.enjoy yourself in your brand new chair...ciao!

  5. I meant to say they warned him of the operation he could have been paralyzed and hurting worse than without the operation so opted to just endure the pain..No use in being paralyzed and unable to walk or anything else..Hope your back will be better once you get to Texas again and some heat that is dry and nice..ciao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
