#10 Family Table

Our cottage on Pine Lake is an old miners' house we moved from town.   The first thing we put in it was this table, which we bought from some lady in Bessemer for $5.   For 50 summers it has been a work bench, coffee table, dining table, game table, office, sewing table, bar, card table, puzzle board, computer stand, towel rack, classroom, and hangout; you can see the lake from three sides, sunset from two, and watch the fireplace from the fourth.  If those wall could talk, they wouldn't - they would be laughing too hard to get the words out.

Oh, how I would love to hear those words. Over the past few months, I have seen your photos and read your words and through them know how much you love your cabin. Thanks for sharing.

I have a very similar "family table". It is amazing all the things those legs have seen. :-)

just imagine how different that photo would have looked 100 years ago and how it WOULD look 100 years forward - what will be sitting on it then? - lovely photo.

That's what a family table is all about. Great capture. Gary
