Guarantee he very much appreciates the chair but the old one is preferred.


Did the math to see what year it would have been 70 yrs ago. Had to use the calculator on my phone. Came to get a better look at how well a 70 year old pencil that is still being used looks.thats when I noticed it has the date 1953 stamped into the side of it.
