The location was in the living room of my house in Beltsville, MD.
The "Take It!” came after I had looked at the rescue rolling chair I had picked up and after cleaning - put into my living
room. This was in spite of it having one of the cushions on an arm of the chair having a chunk torn off - which I imagine
was the reason for the disposing of the chair in the first place.
I had looked at this chair with its injury for a number of months before it hit me that there could be a possibility for an
easy fix due to the arm being attached to the seat of the chair by a single piece of angle iron. The idea hit me that
a sock might just be inverted and be able to slide right on and cover over the tear. I went for a pair of thick boot
socks I had not used in a long time that were with very little wear - thus could offer some cushion. Much to my delight -
the simple ploy has worked!
For the few that have been in my house - this seems to catch everyone's eye and never fails to bring a laugh. Some have
even issued a complement in calling it "clever.” For me it is a harkening back to long ago days when VW Beetles were common
and were run until they were beyond ragged in every way. One of the fixes for torn front seat backs was to cover them
with discard T shirts. There were no end to the laughs some of the prints on those T shirts could bring. On a side
note: We used to be able to buy a beat up Bettle with a blown engine for about $100. We would find another one that
was destroyed in some other way that still had a running motor and buy it for another $100 and take a weekend to combine
the best of the two and sell the running result for five to six hundred dollars. Sometimes this would even include a
fresh spray can paint job - lol. It was fun.
Here is hoping you might be able to use the sock solution at some time and gather some of your own laughs from having done
Wishing you my very best,
