(Cora was NOT a happy camper...)
I used to joke that when the time came for us to ad an "nursery" to the Casablanca, that we'd just put a play pen in the lounge with the bar... that way both Baby's and Adults could have bottles!
Speaking of the Lounge-
(The leg looks crooked, but i assure its not.)This wooden folding/card table is a treasure saved from the trash heap, also from my Great Grandparents house on Grand Lake. It is OLD. At some point someone painted a checker board on its top, in good think oil/lead based paint! It doesn't bother us though...
(We were going to play Checkers, but couldn't remember the rules... so we switched to Chess!)
I already had a nice set of wooden chess pieces that I got in Kansas years ago, and they were just perfect for this table. It was nice to sit in the evening cool of the screened in lounge. I couldn't help but imagine how many times the same scene must have played on the porch of the house at Grand Lake. I bet many a card and board game were played on this through the years!
Once again isn't it funny, and kind of charming that these things ended up at another lake house.
How they ended up in "a whole new era"!
