More unusual than usual story: Much loved armchair past its best. Located on rear porch for "coffee & contemplation" use. Rubber sheet on far arm keeps study books dry. Dish on arm is a satellite receiver modified with reflective foil to be a solar heater. Works well. Too well. The night before a cellphone was placed at the focus at the end of the arm to access a weak cellsite. Worked well. Left after use. Next morning, the sun came !!! :-) :-(. Fire, smoke, much burning. No great harm done fortunately. Could have burned the house down. That was 11 months ago. The beloved chair is still there and still in daily use.
