Thanks for looking!

NICE WORK

Hoss- Thanks!

Tony- Thank You! I think a whole box will fit on there!!

Marpintero- Thanks!

Ed- Thank You! This is the second one I made. The first was for a “little” girl who is now in college.

Charles- Thanks!

Karson- Thank You! Everything IS still the same! I just added an air purifier. Mimi was getting really tired of the dust upstairs.

John- Thanks! It got some early use this Thanksgiving, too!

Steve- Thank You!

We received a picture of the customer test driving her new chair-

Thanks, everyone, for all of the views and making this a Daily Top 3. I really appreciate it.

Practical gift that should last for multiple kids, and subsequently, for guests, and great grandkids. A playpen and a high chair are necessary household items for grandparents. I don’t know what “older issue” means, but for me it can be up to 30 years!

Have a good holidays season, Lew.

Thank You, Jim! Well it was close to “old”, issue 67 published in 1990!

Mimi and I hope you and your family have a peaceful and healthy holiday(s). Stay Warm!!

Lew, that is only 27 years old, not 30!

I was betting it was truly an old issue… (-:

We must be in the same category… of antiquities, don’t you think?
Perhaps the pre-computing age or some such.

It’s a great post. Reminds me of the pleasures of family, and what we mean to each other…

Enjoying the holidays so far, with family.

You and Mimi take care, and enjoy as well…
