The most important seat in many family homes is Dad’s chair.
Don’t sit in it unless he’s not home. Probably don’t even sit in it then.
Don’t move it, mess with the settings or consider replacing it – no matter how many age holes it develops – without express permission.
Dad’s chair is his throne, and a throne should be left alone.
In honor of Father’s Day, we want to round up stories and photos of Wichita dad chairs. Whether it’s a beat-up recliner a la Martin Crane in “Frasier” or a well-worn wing-back like Archie Bunker had in “All in the Family,” if the chair was a key furnishing in your family life, we want to know about it.
Write us a sentence or paragraph or two about the chair and what it means or meant to your father. If you have a photo of the chair with Dad in it, send it, too. If not, just send us a photo of your father.
The best story/photo combo will win a $100 gift card.
E-mail your photo and story to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Sunday, June 12. Be sure to include your name, your dad’s name and a daytime phone number. We’ll publish the stories and pictures online at Kansas.com and reprint the best in the Sunday Arts section on Father’s Day, June 19.
