Seating for 1 or 2 ?

Grenville thinks this will make a dandy patio seat for two – or maybe one?  WHAT do you think?double seat1114 (2)

This was part of the mighty oak tree that was removed from the Frog & PenguINN front yard last weekend.

Grenville also thought this would make a great puzzle, but hasn’t yet figured out how to package it.  ANY suggestions?

Maybe he has too much time to think – you think?

I agree with Grenville, that would be a great patio seat, at least for one person.

I think it would be easiest just to put it all in a sack and put a photo of the old oak on the sack so people can see where the pieces will fit :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

Hi,

I had a brilliant idea back in 2003 to leave the stump of an oak tree which is near the patio. We thought it would make a great side table. I bought stuff to seal the top and finish the wood. Now we still have the stump, but it is decaying next to the patio. I suggest you just have the "seat" ground out. :(

I do like the puzzle idea. Perhaps that would work. Yeah, sure, that might work. :\

Yes, he definitely has too much time on his hands... not enough to keep his overly creative mind busy... You need to make up a new JOBS list - or hire him out to neighbors!

Ginnie said...

Well, all I can say is if you keep it as a seat for one that would be someone with mighty big cheeks !!

Oh, now it worked. I've been trying to comment on this post, and the comment window wouldn't show up for me. Nice post!

The seats are great but the puzzle... hummm...you have a point there about too much time!! :)
Thanks so much for your lovely comments about Edward. How did we choose his name? You know it's funny - my daughter and I were sitting in the car waiting for the Vet to open his door and we thought, "We must give him a name...it's so much easier to pray for a person or animal when you know their name." And honestly, the name Eddie came out of both our mouths at the exact same time!! So...he was Eddie! But three weeks later, after coming home from the vet, he answered to Edward better so...I guess he chose his final name! Edward means Happy Defender and you know...it really suits him!!
Hope another animal love comes into your life soon!
many blessings!
Ann

I think he has chosen a love seat for your patio.It is a good memory also.Leave the pile, it will sink down a lot, and then you have a nice spot for some flowers already mulched.

It does sound like Grenville has too much time on his hands. I think the wood chips would make good mulch, or perhaps a pathway. That would give him a nice little project to keep him busy.

How 'bout a table for two????? And we can use Toad Stools for seats (as log as the toads don't mind.)

Thanks everyone for all your comments and suggestions. Grenville and I read them all and decided that Christer had the most original idea about the wood chip puzzle. But where do you find a sack large enough?

The seating for 1 or 2 looks pretty good in front of Grenville's workshop right now. We liked your idea, Lois, of a patio table - do you still have that stuff?

I have also heard that Stephen King has a rather interesting AND spooky looking house. Big iron gates...all black. NOt sure how I would like living in that frame of mind all the time. Children with their imaginations..and..I believe he has children. Ah well...I have read a couple of his books...and then I began one and it horrified me. About the kidnapping of a child and that did it for me! Never picked up another one and I have a couple of them here that will probably end up at Goodwill.

p.s. The bench at the top..for me? ONE! :)

When the chips are down, have a seat.

Hi Mona and welcome to our blog. Yes, we also heard about author Stephen's King's home in Bangor, Maine and we were told that he is pretty familiar to the locals and that many folks do go to see his home. It's just as gothic looking as you might image - so we were told. Not sure why we didn't make a side trip there, just sort of forgot in our ramblings around. He and his writer wife, Tabitha King, have contributed sigificantly to the Bangor public library. And, like you, I can't read his books either -- a bit too frightening.

Glad you liked the seating for one! Come back and visit anytime and I'll be doing the same on your blog!
