Show Me - Table

A few years back, another blog friend, Robert, hosted a meme called Show Me. We had specific things to post for this assignment and you can see my previous version here. There are some posts besides those that follow, but for whatever reason, they popped up, too, in my search.

Anyway, one of the girls, Kaylia, who participate in that thought it would be fun to do it again. So I said, "Sure, I'm in." And then I almost forgot to be in. But I digress. My poor little blog here could use something to share, so here we go.

Week 1: Table {<-----click to see the meme}

John and I have had this dining room table for a very, very long time. I think we bought it around 1991, maybe. The original chairs started to get a little wobbly (I can't imagine why, raising two boys!) and about 7 1/2 years ago, John brought home some free RV chairs. Those are what you see around the table now. They were fairly close to matching. And did I mention they were free? We like free. Mostly. The table has a leaf, so it's sometimes larger.

For quite awhile, this table was also the home office of John's business. Which was not always convenient when it came time to eat. So sometimes we ate in the family room. In front of the tv. Don't judge me. But on another happy, free note, someone gave us a pretty nice desk, so now his home office has a more permanent residence. And we get to eat at the table more often.

It's been a good table. We've had a lot of meals here, played a lot of games here, and used it as a fort. I imagine it'll be around for a lot more years, too.

Yes, it's been a good table! Lots of good times around it! The chairs have lasted pretty good too - especially for FREE chairs!

Free is always good! My dining room table was my desk for a while too and it drove me nuts, so hard to stay organized.

Thanks for playing!

We have free chairs too! My dad found them by the dumpster. Until he made us two benches for our table, we had our "new" chairs around the table with the originals -- which are starting to fall apart. Your table looks gorgeous yet! Ours looks like something from a scratch and dent sale. :o)

These are good. But you know what? It doesn’t any matter how it looks like when it serves for you. As these are part of your daily lives, surely these have some importance.
