Rock It!

When I'm 80 and sitting in a rocking chair listening to the Rolling Stones, there is absolutely no way I am going to feel old or forget my younger days.
-Patty Duke

Meet my paternal grandmother's rocking chair. It has been passed around my family and now I have it for awhile. I don't spend a good deal of time in it, but I think it may have been the beginning of my journey in rock and roll. One time when we were visiting my grandmother when I  was 5 or 6 and I remember my Mom rocking me in it. I had fallen down, was crying and she sang rock songs to me while we rocked. I stopped crying and started singing with her. One of my happier younger memories. A few generations have rocked in it and I am having it reconditioned so it will rock a few more.
