AEDDD 28: Still Bare Foot and Rocking


c. 1961 Look at those feet go!

c. 1961 Look at those feet go!

My rocker broke yesterday. I’m a rocking chair addict (see photo) from way back. Mom says I used to rock my crib against the bedroom door, which made it challenging for anyone to open it. I’ve been known to go through a rocker a year. I even have a couple back-ups, but none with a foot rest to raise my feet during long computer sessions. So, I turned the chair over, adjusted the wood frame with a mallet, got out my electric drill and screwed the thing back together. Back in the rocking business. A happy, still bare foot, cave dweller:>)

THREE more days of (Almost) Every Damn Day December posts, then I’ll give you folks a break. Just 5 days until I take off on my Alaska adventure. I think I found a friendly person to take me on a photo tour during my short layover in Juneau. I can’t wait to see that glacier! I get into Anchorage late’ish, but look forward to family hugs and the stubby tail-wagging excitement of mom and dad’s dog.

  1. Upstairs in one of the guest bedrooms, I still have the rocker I was given for my first birthday. Later there is a photo of me “reading” a book as I rocked. You may have seen a photo of me on the chair in PlainandFancy blog’s “Purple Passages” menu section.

    May 2014 bring you abundance and warm reminisces of your Alaskan trip.

  2. Who says we need a break? 😉 I’m looking forward to your photos from Alaska though. I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise up there. I’ve heard it’s spectacular!

  3. Lol Patti, I are you off your rocker? Lmao, couldn’t resist! 🙂

  4. That’s why my friend Sam dances his grief. He’s rocking and soothing his body.
    Keep rockin’.
    Love, Elaine
