The sofa of doom

Mom and Dad are talking about getting rid of The Sofa.

Back in 1966, it was a "bordello red" sofa with fringe on the bottom. The guess is that it started its life in the 1920s in Los Angeles. When Great-great-grandmother Emily McGary died, Gammie Ruth asked Dad and Cousin Jim for help in cleaning out the house. Mom and Dad were newlyweds at the time, so were happy to have this solid, reliable oak sofa regardless of its color. Mom and Dad have had it reupholstered numerous times, and it has stood up to NINETEEN household moves since they took possession. It's time for the sofa to go on to another life.

It's kind of neat to think that there is a sofa out there that is going to live to 100 years old.

Not off hand, sorry. I should ask Mom if she has any...
