Twenty years ago, us old Furlongs bought two genuine Lazyboy recliners second-hand – genuine originals, – a lighter lady-chair and a heavier man-chair. We had them re-covered in a very good blue boucle dralon. We thought it cost a fortune at the time.
We lived in Africa and they were going to be our retirement chairs that we’d take to the retirement village we’d booked our place in.
But we ended up in the UK. And we don’t live in a retirement village. And the chairs have got older than us!
So the chairs are being de-mobbed today.
They have been our very comfortable friends all this time. They have blended in well with every lounge we’ve lived in along the way, and they’ve never demanded a thing from us, except invited us (and others) to sit in them. They have been remarkable in every way.
I honour you, dear chairs. Thank you for your devoted service.
