...you served me well for 10 years. I bought you and your companion chairs at a garage sale in St. Louis in 1995. You went to college with me, back to St. Louis, to Boston, to the Bronx, to Manhattan, and then to Providence. If the bottom hadn't fallen out of your left side over a year ago, I would've held on. Thankfully, someone carted you away, before the sanitation people came. I hope that you will be rebuilt and reupholstered in all of your great red velvety-ness.
