I think that would even beat Edison. nice one.

Valerie said...

There are a good many who would like to see THAT invention.

Porky said...

The right answer would surely be: "I have, but you'll need to upgrade."

A good, innocent take that brings out the fun in the picture.

Maybe Henry can help out Tommyboy at the drawing board. After all, he probably had some major input when it came to developing the Ford car seat! LOL! Buckle up, Mr. Edison! LoLOUDER!

P.S. Great take!

Daryl said...

I bet he got to it right after he finishing the light bulb

Pat said...

T. Edison probably could have come up with an electronic, padded, vibrating deck chair if he'd put his mind to it. I enjoyed your/their dialogue.

Anyes said...

Now that would have been a great invention ;-)

secret agent woman said...

Seems like the least he could do!

Travis Cody said...

LOL! Methinks they are still working on that one!

Shrinky said...

Or at least one that doesn't tie me in knots to set it up!

Grandma's Goulash said...

Obviously this must be trickier than the light bulb, because I've yet to meet a comfortable one.

Thanks for a wonderful mf.

I've always wished for a more comfy deckchair! I'm with you all the way on this one.

Linda said...

Absolutely brilliant! And I bet Thomas was able to comply with that request, too!

Susan Fobes said...

The chairs look as if it wouldn't take much for them to collapse!
