  • Shilohbaby Says:

    The place you relax in the family room is known as the “Throne”. No one else ever sits there.
    Your “Throne” occupies the prominent spot in the room directly in front of the TV.

    Passers-by know to ask if you would like a snack or drink and produce what you require…happily.
    All is well.
