I have a sofa-bed that I would love to see disappear - been in my garage for a year.  The cats scratched up the corners, though.  It would need to be re-upholstered, but it's in great shape, otherwise.  Puppy feels like it weighs 300 lbs.

Anyway, it's your for free, if you want it.  I can take some pictures of it.  You would have to come up and haul it home, but it will fit into a pick-up bed.

I'll try to remember to photograph it this evening.  I need to clear some stuff off of it, first.

Sounds good.  It does not have to be pretty...

Here it is in all of it's wonderful glory.  It comes with pillows and arm rest covers, too.  We also had a couch cover for it, but I'm not sure where it got to.

Looks like a great thing to put in an out-of-the-way place in the museum for pooped volunteers!

LOL!  That's not a bad idea!  Now Rick can work 24/7 and never have to go home. Smiley

I'll tell you what is probably more valuable to volunteers than that comfy-looking couch -- a shower. When the Silversides was in Chicago, we sporadically had access to hot-water showers on Navy Pier and later in an Army Corps tug the museum used to own. It was great to have, especially when you stayed overnight to lead and chaperone the scout groups.

What I have another home?     

Not a bad idea for the volunteers.  I will need to work this one out.
