Christmas in October!

When I had hip replacement surgery 3 1/2 years ago, I found both my legs needed some elevation time. The best chair I had for that was a deck chair, one of two ergonomically correct chairs that allow me to lie back with my feet raised. As you can see from the picture, once the cool of fall came, even inside, I felt better if I covered the back with a throw. And it wasn't exactly my idea of nice living room furniture. Still I was what I had and I have been very grateful.

Today, Dean came up the stairs grinning. 
Guess what? 
What?
I bought the chair. 
Several days ago, he had found this chair on Craig's List. Today he bought it.

It is one of those that does everything: massages, vibrates, heats your feet. 
The list of massages is impressive: kneading, tapping, knocking, pressing.
I can decide on Fatigue Recovery, Pain Relieving and Comfortable. 
I can decide on Overall, Shoulder, Back and Waist. 
Oh and there's "Stretch" - I'll let you know what that does.
I'm going to explore "width" as I think my back needs just a little more room. 
Sitting here I notice there is a timer going down. Don't know what will happen
when it gets to 00. Ah - it returns the chair to its original position. Ok, have to figure out how to keep that from happening in the middle of a tv show.
The next few days/weeks will be spent exploring possibilities, all of which will make me feel better I think. I won't be bothered if I don't have a present under the tree. I will just sit in my chair and grin.
