Have you ever wondered what it would be like
to live in an gloo?
I may have wondered at some time but
it is not something I ever want to experience.
Call me a big baby but I like comfort and warmth.
I looked up gloo on Wikipedia and learned quite a bit
about them. The most interesting thing was the inside
temperature can get as high as 61* from body heat.
I also learned that the sleeping quarters are near the top because
heat rises and when the place gets warm there is some melting.
It’s ok for some melting because when the bodies leave taking
their heat with them the temperature goes back to freezing
and the walls become stronger when new ice forms.
There was more info but there was nothing about bathrooms.
Are there bathrooms in gloos?
I mean really, do they have indoor or outdoor facilities?
Truthfully, neither sounds comfortable.
I would consider this type of gloo.
It looks warm and comfortable.
But I don’t know about the bathroom.
This rocking chair that now sits in my guest room
was given to my Gramma by Joe, my Grampa.
I don’t know why we called him Joe, it wasn’t his name.
Anyway, he gave it to Gramma 95 years ago
when she was pregnant with her first child, my mother.
In this chair, she rocked her two children
and seven grandchildren.
It is no ordinary chair.
To me, it says LOVE.
