ON THE BACK BURNER

April 7

I am searching for a floor lamp. They are hard to come by at resale shops. Does this mean that I have to buy furniture retail ? I haven't done that since we moved here. We came here with very few pieces of furniture. We gave our kids the option of taking anything that we had,except the silver ! I think we took four pieces of furniture. Our bed, a lamp table and 2 armoires. We had a fifth piece, a rocking chair from Bob's ancestral home in Great Neck. We have since given that to a Grandson. We also gave him the silver. It's Ok, other Grandson's, I have more. But now, I have to replace the lamp table and lamp. The piece is at least 47 years old. I don't think that it was meant to last this long. It'll be a new experience ,buying a new piece of furniture. I'm much more comfortable dumpster diving or going to resale shops. I'll be strong and not look at the price tag.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
