I'm Sick and Need Professional Help

At a garage sale recently, I found this aluminum lawn chair and thought right away how great it would look all polished up with the cedar wood redone. Just finished up this morning.

Why is it I feel I need to polish everything associated with my vintage Airstream? I'm sick, I know.

I can think of worse ailments. That chair looks awesome! Although, I think it needs a matching mate to make it a pair.

Oh good, I'm not alone. I bought a vintage cooler at an antique mall last weekend, and before the day was over, I had hauled out the can of Mother's and a stack of microfiber cloths. I stopped polishing when it hurt to look directly at it in sunlight.

Nice chair, by the way!

WOW! That is one dag gone good looking chair. Is obsessive compulsive in your lexicon?

What is wrong for you people? I have a good mind to invite you all over to dinner and leave a few jars of polish and some cloths next to my trailer and let nature take it's course

Awesome chair, BTW!

As addictions go you could have worse ones.

This one gives you excercise and doesn't hold the threat of jail and with some effort on your part it probably won't lead to divorce either.

Obviously you haven't been caught polishing your neighbor's LP tanks at 3 am...

Well, all I can say is that I hope that you used your Cyclo to do the polishing.
