I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas.

Day 120 of 365

The Red Press
This cabinet belonged to my great grandmother and was called the red press because she used it to store "pressed" linens. My mom remembers it being in her house. When I was a child, it had been moved to the shop and was used to store old tractor parts. My sister-in-law was going to throw it away and I rescued it, cleaned it up a bit, stabilized it a bit and now I use it to store electrical appliances. I believe it was made in the late 1890's.

Love the story of the cabinet, but sorry, not the cabinet that much.
