    She tried a new position and liked it!

    I brought home a hammock chair with a stand and set it up in the living room while spouse was away. Needless to say there was a discussion when she got home. Before I gave up a few days later and took it out, she had a sleepless night and wound up sleeping in the hammock chair out of desperation. The next morning she had me take her to select her own hammock chair.

    The picture shows both hammock chairs set up in front of the double recliner they are replacing. The recliner will be gone in the next garage sale.

    Brown and white hammock chair: http://www.byerofmaine.com/the-brazi...ock-chair.html

    Green hammock chair: http://www.byerofmaine.com/products/...ger-chair.html

    Hammock stands: I can't find a link on-line. Gander Mountain in Corsicana, Tx and Atwood's Ranch & Home in Corsicana both have these stands in stock. They look like the Byer's Luna, except these stands are rated for 275#. Atwood's does not have an on-line store and Gander Mtn on-line doesn't list the stand.

    Gander Mtn carries the stands in white for $120 or so. Atwood's marked their's down to $70, and they still didn't sell. They ran a special half off the sale price, so I got two stands for $70. I bought the brazil style chair from a display at Gander Mtn for half off.
    The swinger style chair (by the way, the name is apprapo on multiple levels) was purchased for full price ($100+) from a Whole Earth store in Dallas.

    The dark chocolate ears belong to Savannah. Her sister, Silver, has the silver ears with her head down on the pillow. Two of our 3 Yorkies that rule the house. They tend to sit on my chest when I'm stretched out in the hammock chair. No need for a top quilt when they are around.

    Lola, my Yorkie in her Bumble Bee Halloween costume.


    Those chairs are nice, I've sat in several at displays, last one was Oshkosh. If I didn't have 16 inches of brand new blown insulation up in my ceiling, I'd put a member in to hang from and get one of them.

    This thread was not what I was hoping it would be, but I'm glad she liked it in the end.
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.
