SUBJECT:  Kitchen table

We have had another catastrophe at the Sujomi household.  Our kitchen table broke this evening.  It is an old table – my mom got it from my dad’s side of the family back in the 1970’s and it must have been at least 20-30 years old then.  She gave it to me when I bought my 1st house in 1993 and it’s been in my kitchen ever since.  About 2 years ago, it developed a crack on one end where a couple of planks had been joined together in making the surface.  Well, tonight when DQ was leaning on it, that crack finally snapped apart completely.  Scared the bejeezus out of her.  She was upset, but I assured her it wasn’t her fault and I’m sure we can fix it.  Wood glue, clamps and some braces underneath should do it – I hope.  If not, I guess I’ll be shopping for a new kitchen table.

I hope it can be fixed. It's a neat old table!

Rather an interesting style.

Glad it wasn't laden when it broke.
