It's Memorial Day and time to rock out! Saw this white rocking chair on a porch near the beach we were visiting, and, seeing a "for lease" sign, figured I would go up to the deck and take a beautiful picture! Of course, when I got close to the chair, I could see it's a cheap one - a bit rickety, put together by visible hardware (which is already degrading in the seabreeze and humidity), and already rotting in the joints as almost all rockers do. You have to get a rocker made of a weatherproof wood if you're going to leave a rocker outside! I didn't sit in this one - after all, I wasn't invited to the house anyway! - but I could tell what it would feel like - stiff and cheap - and didn't really want to. So basically what you have here is a rocker that makes for a beautiful, peaceful scene, but not what you would want to invest in if you are going to live with it. And hey, if you put your house on the market, you should consider high quality, not low quality porch furniture - otherwise discerning buyers will assume your house is cheap too!
Holden loves rocking chairs and loves writing about them almost as much.
