Cee-Cee’s Bench

On warm days, Cee-Cee and I like to sit on this white iron bench and pass the time away. It’s a special place for us.

Cee-Cee's Bench sits beside the Maumee River in our backyard

But, let’s allow Cee-Cee to tell the story of her Bench.


“Mom, my Bench has a ghost behind it. Be careful!”

“No, Sweetie Pie, that’s my shadow as I take this picture for you.”

“Oh, okay, then.”


“In the Fall, my Bench has leaves on it.”


“But it’s still my Bench, and I guard it.”


“Don’t even think about getting on my Bench.”


“Yep. It’s my Bench. All day long.”


“Hey! I mean it! It’s mine!”


“Oh, yeah, I guard it from behind, too. Mine.”


“And from the front. It’s mine.”


“And from the side. Mine. Don’t touch.”


“I love my Ben…nnn…ccchhh!”


“Whew. A girl gets a little tired guarding her Bench all day.”


“Even a little sleepy in this warm Autumn air…


Who’s there!?”


“Mom! It’s the ghost again. He wants my Bench!”

“No, Darlin’ Dumpling, it’s just me taking another picture.”

“Oh. Right. Okay.”


“I think it’s nap time…


But I’ll always be ready to guard my Bench. No touching!”


“Mom, let’s do a selfus. I love you and I love our Bench.”


“Yup. Ours, Mom. You and me and Bench.”

The lawn's been mowed and leaves cleared and Bench is ready for Winter, the new guarding season.
