The rural life : Monica Joy — believe!

History as told by the chair

If furniture could talk, a chair might just sit you down and say, “My great-great-grandfather, a stool, once told me, ‘Son, you don’t know what it’s like to have only three legs.’” Believe me, if a chair talked to me like that, I would pull up a seat and pay attention. For that matter, if […]
