My new "schtender" :)

It finally dawned on me that I might be able to take advantage of one difference between our new dining room chairs and our old ones.  The old ones were rounded on top, and every time I tried to balance a siddur (prayer-book) on my old chair, so that I wouldn't have to hold it through the entire Amidah ("Standing" prayer), it would, invariably, fall off sooner or later.  The new ones, on the other hand, are perfectly flat.  Hmm ...

Here's that same chair, with my siddur resting semi-securely on top without a helping hand.

Mazal tov, Shira--you now have a new "schtender (shtender)."
