Anyway, during the month of October I bit the bullet and decided to organize my basement storage room. It was pretty bad but I stayed at it and in less than a month I was done. We had tons and tons of stuff that we gave away and threw away. One of the things we had was Frank's Mom's old cedar chest that she had from before she had gotten married. It had been shoved down in our basement and it was in terrible shape. We thought it was hopeless.
Isn't that a shame?!!
Frank asked John about it because John is very handy with woodworking. He even restored an old Chris Craft boat to it's original wooden splendor. It is beautiful But, again, I digress. Seems to happen a lot with me. Anyway, John asked if he could take it home and play with it and so, of course, we agreed.
Imagine our delight when he returned our cedar chest last night looking better than new.
Is that gorgeous or what!!!!
We know that it was a tremendous amount of work and a big time commitment. That makes it even more special to us, because we are aware of the love that comes with it. So far this has been a stupendous Christmas season.
