New chairs similar to old chairs.

Bridgeton,  NJ

First, welcome to our newest follower Raymond.  Good to meet you here.

We arrived back here at daughter Terri and son-in-law Steve's house in NJ on Friday from our almost two weeks in Gettysburg.  When we left there it was in the high 90's and about 100 when we (or should I be honest and say Leonard ) were getting set up for our 4 days back in this area.

Back on Thursday we drove under to MD from Gettysburg to Amy's house to deliver our two recliners that came with our Montana.


They will be keeping one and gave to other one to their tenant who lives in the small house on their property.

We like these chairs as they reclined, rocked and swiveled.   However, we did not like that they had to be at least 18 inches from the wall to recline fully.   I never recline that far but Leonard loves to take naps in the full reclining positon.

So about 6 weeks ago we ordered new chairs from Boscovs, a local department store.   They arrived while we were in Gettysburg.  Once we (Leonard) got set up, we went to Boscovs and picked them up.


They were easy to bring into the rig since they are Lazy Boys and the back ends are removable.   When shopping for new chairs we found these that are the same size as the original ones.  The fabric is different but the brown color is just a little different from the old chairs.  When you look closely you will see some black running through it.    I wanted to keep with the brown as that is the predominant color scheme in the rig.


Oh yea, they will do.  This is son in law Steve and Leonard trying them out.


We do have more floor space now. I miss the rocking feature but I can live with these to have the additional space.

We did not do much of anything on Saturday.   Terri made pulled chicken and a peach cobbler.  I did my part by going to the store for potato, broccoli, and macaroni salads.    It was just TOOOO hot to move.

On Sunday we attended our church.  Then in the afternoon we met our friends Clare and Tom for dinner midway between their house and Terri's for dinner at one on our favorite dinners - Peters Diner in Williamstown,  NJ.


Peters dinners come with soup AND salad and some great rolls and breads.   Not a cup of soup, but a bowl of soup.  Not a small side salad, but a huge salad of mixed greens, carrots, onion, tomatoes and cucumbers.    The meal portions of large also.  As usual, we eat the soup, salad and bread and bring the dinner home for the next night.   (Dinner is cooked for tonight - yippee).

I put our camera in Len's pocket because I planned to take a picture of Tom and Clare but forgot about it until they were pulling out of the parking lot.   I do that too often.    This time we were just too busy catching up for me (Or Len) to remember the camera.

Today it is getting the propane tanks filled, catching up on laundry, grocery shopping and going to the bank.   Tomorrow it is off to Cororus State Park near Hanover PA for a 6 day stay.  We are looking forward to Saturday.  We will be visited by Laura and George of www.owensontheroad.blogspot.com.

The chairs are nice! Boscov's is a good store for items like that. We are looking forward to seeing you guys too!

One of these days the two rockers in our trailer will be traded off too. Too bad I didn't now it Boscov's in Scranton closed and had a huge sail while I was up there. Maybe I could have got two for the price of one. Oh well. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

The chairs look terrific! We went to Bontagers right across the border in MI and I got 4 new cushions for our dinette - the old ones were so bad, and I wasn't wanting to pay $400 for a new set - found a brand new set there for $120...what a deal!

As usual, you are having too much fun :)
