Large Rocking Chair

On our mini-road trip this past weekend, as we were be-bopping on down the road looking for our next destination, we spotted something not on our list. A large rocking chair. We headed inside Choices, a consignment shop that is right behind the chair, and asked the nice people who worked there if we could go take some pictures with the chair. They said that we could, and that people stop by and ask about ten times a day if they can take pictures with it. After climbing up on the chair we realized how heavy duty it was (the chair doesn't actually rock).

We were told by a man working there that this is their third chair. The first was burnt down, the second was stolen, and now this is their third which seems to be made out of a metal. This chair isn't rocking away any time soon.

This particular chair -- or one of its predecessors -- is also a memorial to Skip Kirby, an ex-Navy guy who died in 1989 (His memorial plaque is on the chair base).
