Happy Birthday, Katie, Air Chair and moderating comments

Katie's birthday was Sunday, February 20, and she is now 5.

I wanted to show you a photo of my Air Chair, which I mentioned in a previous post.  During the winter I take it down, and when the rain stops I hang it back up.  There's a bolt in one of the studs of my overhang on the patio that is strong enough to hold the chair with a person sitting in it.

It's the most comfortable chair!  There is a separate "hammock" that your feet rest on, arm rests, and a cup holder.  It swings, or you can just sit back and relax with your feet up.

In a past job I used to work the local homeshow for my company, and there were two things I wanted, an Air Chair and a VitaMix blender.  My boss told me to go over and talk to the salespeople and ask if I could buy one at a discount that they were using for demonstrations during the show.  They sold them for less at the end of the show.  If I was the first person to ask, I'd get it.  I guess they use new ones for each show, and selling the demonstration unit was a good deal for them and me.

That's how I got both my Air Chair and my VitaMix, both of which I've had for years and love.
I think I forgot to mention that I had the comment moderation turned on now - I did that because of all the spam I was getting and I was worried that might have something to do with the hacking issues (or whatever the heck that was).  Probably caused by something totally different, but it was suggested that I use the moderation just in case.  Sorry for the extra step, I hated having to do it, but thank you for hanging in there and leaving the comments.  I actually forgot about it and when I checked today and I had no comments.  Gone too long?  Everyone's forgotten me?  Then I went into the comment section to see if I had spam to delete and there were lots of comments to moderate!  That was something new.  Lo and Behold - Comments!  So, thank you.

From Me and My Dog, Katie, have a great Tuesday evening, everyone! : )

    I used to have one of those chairs too and loved sitting out on our shaded patio watching the world go by. They are very comfortable and I hated to see it go.
