Rip

My favorite bench collapsed and died this morning. She was wrought iron with a nice padded seat and a little shelf underneath. She was always in a room off my kitchen waiting for me, and we've spent many mornings together having a smoke, drinking coffee and surfing the web. She has shown signs of distress for years; various spots rusting out. This morning as she held my as* lovingly up off the floor I heard her groan and felt her tilt. Before I had a chance to say my goodbye, she just broke apart and fell to the floor in pieces . I believe she tried to hang on, each bolt getting looser each day but this world was too much for her. She has given in to death. I would like to think she is at peace now, in that big recycling plant in the sky. When I come down tomorrow morning, the hole in this room will be glaring and the hole in my heart will be painful. For the time being I will have nowhere to sit and enjoy my coffee.
Rest in peace my dear supportive friend.

Re: Rip

My condolences to you and Rip to a great friend that has been there through many coffee mornings and been a place that your legs and tush can really unwind.
No one will be able to support your heiny in quite the same way ever again but as time goes by the pain and grief will ease leaving only happy memories of you and your dear friend.

Another bench may come along, it won't be the old bench sure but the old bench would want to see your tush rested and happy and would take great comfort in this.

I like to imagine that your bench is somewhere with all the other furniture restored to its once perfect condition with no cares in the world just Doing bench things.

All my love , flory

Re: Rip

Hey, all benches go to heaven. Period.


Losing a much loved piece of furniture is traumatic. I've been through it.

Re: Rip

Thank you so much for your sympathies. My as* feels so empty and cold this morning but I will work through the pain.

It IS pain. It is a hollow feeling and a deep yearning for what was and having that same safe place to be.
Is there a welding shop nearby that specializes in wrought iron?

I'm all wigged out over this as it brings back my furniture losses.
