The Worlds Oldest Giant Rocking Chair

Thanks to the internet, I narrowly avoided mislabling this as the worlds largest rocking chair!

Up until 2008, this 21 foot tall, 14 foot wide monstrosity held the title of worlds largest. It has been superceded by others who had no better way to spend thier hard earned cash. I suppose it is art, but I am not versed in it.

Penrose, Colorado has somewhere between 3 and 5 thousand inhabitants and has one visible gas station that I use from time to time.

I have what is known to the regulars as “The Party At Penrose.” I may write about this experience in the future.

Prior to writing this blog, I dabbled in other media as a form of expression. Here is a link to a clip I made where I pretended to escape a giant. Rocking Chair Video. Looking back, it is a little lengthy, but I had fun making it. Let me know what you think!

          You are going to make it! Remember, don’t outgrow your roots. They make you the remarkable individual you are. As life progresses, you will see the shallowness the world at large offers. I am cheering for you!

            That I am, friend and snotty nosed little sister. One day, you will look back at that annoying blogger with the Campfire and be happy I hammered that comment home. I will refrain from saying it again….. Mostly!

            I tried…. from the email anyway, and I didn’t work.
            I saw it in the WP reader, but I’ll see if I can find it again.
