This is my umbrella stand that stays in it's place by the front door.
I bought this at an antique store for only ten dollars. Yep, that's right. I was looking for one and
when I saw this one I said sold!
Here's a closeup. See there are pictures of a place far away.
Now just look at all that color. Isn't it beautiful. My mom gave this to me for my birthday one year.
I love the dragonflies on it. We have hundreds of dragonflies around our pond.
Just look at all that detail.
This is real wood, too none of that plastic stuff.
The other piece in the umbrella stand is this very old cane. This was my father-in-law's. He lived to be 96 years young. That man was like a cat with nine lives. When I met Mr. Savvy in 1974 his father had an artificial leg from the knee down on one side. He had been in an accident on his tractor in 1972. The tractor turned over and he was trapped under it for 23 hours and his leg was so infected that it could not be saved. So when he didn't wear his artificial leg he used this cane. This cane means the world to Mr. Savvy.
His dad was in another accident when he was 84. He accidentally caught himself on fire when he was out trying to burn a field off to start a garden. His shoe laces on his artificial leg had caught on fire and of course he could not feel it and it got out of hand very quickly. His neighbor saw him rolling around and called 911. They only gave him a 10% chance of making it. They amputated his other leg and the rest of the other one up as high as they could to keep him from losing fluids as fast as they were putting them in. Well, long story short he lived until he was 96. That was the strongest man I have ever met. On June 5th he would have been 104.
Still have time to join in on the $60 CSN GIVEAWAY!! Time is running out!
Y'all come back now.
