Retired Sofa

Throw out the sofa, toss out the chairs;
No one remembers, nobody cares
About the good times shared round the fire—
Even a sofa has to retire!

Poor sofa. I'd liked it to have a death in beauty.

Is the sofa retired or is it really tired as our son was two might have asked...why is the desert considered a dump by some people?

Why people throw away a sofa on a desert?

A strange place for a sofa, retired or otherwise.

Looks usable anyway, or or possible sale-able- what kind of person throws things away like this? Great photo and topic for discussion this Ruby Tuesday, anyway!

funny poem! Perhaps some one will come along and flip it over one day to create a comfy spot for watching the sun set.

Sad, sad, sofa. Looks like teenagers had something to do with this story!
