This is a delightful story on how the Cartwrights got that blue chair. The history of it is very interesting.
Adam's feelings towards Marie were kind of natural, and I can just imagine his surprise to come across such an odd sight at the side of the road! That blue chair made the house complete. I don't think the Ponderosa would look the same without it. Marie was right when she told Adam "...not my chair, it's our chair."
Interesting take on the prompt, ansinico. I enjoyed it.
This is a sweet story - very funny at times and Im still smiling. I love the title and the story of where it came from as Inger is my favorite Cartwright mom and the tale was simply darling. I loved seeing how the brothers reacted to each other in this... along with Marie... and Joe and Hoss especially were pure joy to read. Your writing has a quirky, lyrical quality to it in this, too, that I find fun and lovely. Well done!
A good explanation as to how the blue chair came to the Ponderosa and how kindnesses are always repaid in either a grand manner as here, or in a small manner. An interesting prequel to the blue chair and how it came to be seen as "Adam's " despite its initial recipient. And a young Little Joe is always a source of pleasure in a story.
Thanks, Ant for taking the time to review. That I got my idea across - a sort of what goes around comes around - something other than a bog-standard purchase, is pleasing as are your kind words.
