my dear sweetheart and i have been sleeping together for 40 years. in beds of many shapes, sizes, and values.
the worst was a horsehair fold-out couch in our early years, whoever was on the back side would slide down onto the bigger part. it was uncomfortable and scratchy and we didn't care a bit.
fussier now, though, in our old age.
our 40th anniversary present to ourselves, with some help from kids, is this.
a keepsake that shall be handed down with joy to future generations. a kingsized bed of carved indian wood.
it's on its way from india right now! i shall buy a lovely soft foam mattress, top it with my memory foam, enfold it in white linen sheets, and sleep in luxury and beauty.
