If we lived somewhere else, I would have brought home this rocker, today. But like the giver, we live in an apartment too small (772 square feet) to take on another piece of furniture. How grand and—by my wife’s estimation—”antique” is this fine piece of craftsmanship and upholstery.
Surely giving up something sentimental—”My G’ma’s”—makes the freebee all the more poignantly placed. May the new owner treasure, rather than resell, the chair, in which Annie sat and proclaimed its comfort and sturdiness. Location: Adams Avenue, just East of Park Blvd, in San Diego neighborhood University Heights.
This post’s title derives from Steve Miller Band single “Rock’n Me“, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for a single week in November 1976. The song isn’t one that particularly appeals to me and yet here I am giving it a round-about plug.
Perhaps grandma rocked to the song in her youth. You never know, eh?
