SO had a gin and tonic, I had a beer.

The cord from the recliner plugs in at the back. No "cables all over the place"

Our lounge is not backed up against a wall, so for us you would certainly see the cables...also to get to the plug, we would need an extension cord too, so for us, the manual ones suited

I see. No question manual is the only way for your setup.

Good thing I know my Hubby will still eat it and not complain.

Oh...I forgot the leftover pie crust in the oven (I had made cinnamon crisp). They are too done. :(
Don't know if anyone will want to eat that.
I did cherry, only one left dh is about to explode

I want a chair with electric running to it. And one to make me cocktails or with a built in cooler. Maybe an inset to fit the remote into so it doesn't fall off the arm when I doze off...
Ahhh, life in the fast lane

Kylie, for as much as I've heard the name, I've never seen the bird. Thanks for the pic.

Not leather, microfiber that looks like cocoa-colored suede. SO wanted a chair that boosted her up to a standing position.

This looks like a beautiful peaceful place to be. What type of bird is that?

Kookabara sits on the old gum tree;
Merry merry king of the bushes he;
Laugh kookabera, laugh kookabera;
Gay your life must be ..

Oh, dear, that is just from memory, now I have to look it up to see if I got it right!
