I think you are right Claire, unless it is "king of the bush is he" ;-)

I have "inherited" my Dad's chair. Not only is it electric, but it will take you from a seated to a standing position as well as reclining all the way to a comfy bed! Ours sticks out a little in the living room, but because the back is velcroed, we were able to hide all the cords (including the backup battery in case you are in the chair during a power failure) until they come out the other side toward the plug.

We have three other manual recliners (all from Dad ) that we are now trying to find good homes for!

Andy, I am very happy for you and your SO. You will love it!

Just be ready for when the van comes to pick you all up for adult day care.

A kookaburra SB

Yes it is a lovely park, so well maintained yet still has a natural, rural look to it

Lol. Only two of my apple pies left. All of the lemon are gone. I guess it didn't matter what they looked like!
