I'm Back...I'm Back....Sorry...A Bout Of Food Poisoning Decided To Prove That Mr. Modtomic Is, In Fact, Only Human. Made My Body Feel Like The Rope Seat On This Danish Style Rocker. Status: Slightly Ravaged
Yeah, Saturday morning found Mr. Modtomic worshiping the porcelain alter...and I've been recovering ever since. I've only been up and out of the house today...and that was only to get these photos and get a bite to eat. Mr. Modtomic's *ss was kicked indeed.
I'm still not 100 over 100, but I'm feeling much better. This "Slavic-Modern" danish style rocking
chair pretty much represents about how I'm feeling now. Just a little ganked.
And there's the "Made In Yugoslavia" mark! I suspect the large part of all the Danish style
furniture here in America is Slavic-Modern. This is the second one of these rocking chairs that
I've come into possession of. The first was black and I passed it to a friend in New Orleans. This
one was found on craigslist while in New York state on vacation. That's right...even on vacation.
I got it cheap because of the rope damage and I'm hoping to be able to repair the roping by re-
twisting it and glueing it back together. I'm obviously not going to be looking for top dollar on this
but it beats letting it go to a landfill. If the next owner wants to do a more "proper" repair latter...
bully for them!
So, I'm back on the horse and hopefully we won't have to many more weekends like the last.
Sorry if you've been checking in but I really was flat on my back for three days and just kinda up
and around today. In sorta unrelated news, I've been selling like gangbusters at the Green Shag
Market and I want to thank everybody who has been going in there to check out mine and
everybody else' booths. It's gonna feel pretty good to get a decent check for the month!
