How to use chair in a sentence?

  1. Eric Burkett:

    This is our forever home, Eric Burkett said, holding back tears as Eric Burkett six year old son Lochlen patted his arm. There's a master bathroom that is completely accessible. There are adaptive showers so that Eric Burkett can bathe Eric Burkett and self-lowering shelves in the state-of-the-art kitchen, so that now Eric Burkett can cook again for Eric Burkett family. The idea of getting up and moving around freely without thinking about logistics. Should I use a chair ? Should I use crutches ? All that's gone, Eric Burkett said. Pointing to the wall of Eric Burkett new home outside Pittsburgh, this Marine has a few reminders from Flag Day that Eric Burkett life changed on a training mission in Morocco. That is actually of one of the prop rotors of the V-22 that crashed. On the back of that, I don't know how many Marines signed that, Eric Burkett said. The foundation started by actor Gary Sinise, best known for Gary Sinise role as Lt. Dan in the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, is trying to build 10 to 12 homes per year for severely injured veterans and first responders. It will hand over the keys to its 50th smart home this August. Donations from Home Depot, JC Penny, GE, Benjamin Moore and the Semper Fi Fund among others made Home Depot possible. Fox News first told the Burketts' story in 2014 while The Burketts ' and The Burketts ' family were recovering at Walter Reed. The Burketts ' and The Burketts ' wife were raising their four children at the time in a set of tiny rooms at the hospital. They have since given birth to twins, Nolynn and Roawyn, who are now 18 months old. A master archer, Eric Burkett began competing as a Paralympian in an effort to begin to heal after the crash. I hate shooting from a wheelchair. A lot of guys don't mind it because you're a little bit lower, you don't have to worry about this instability of your legs.

  2. Gavin Munro:

    We grow the chairs upside down and we start with one branch that spreads out into the chair-back. So, you've gone from one to two, and then the seat, and then you've got the four legs; and it's much more of a tree shape, actually it works in a similar way to 3D printing... we're using photosynthesis for the printing. So as it grows, you've got a piece growing up.

  3. Wes Craven:

    The times when I'm scared are when I'm writing, i've been known to jump out of a chair when someone comes into a room.

  4. Gavin Munro:

    It takes between five and eight years to grow a chair. Small lamps; between two and three years. And the dining tables; ten to fifteen. It's a long-burner. But it's something similar to setting up a vineyard, it takes a few years to get going but we'll have a crop every year.

  5. Chris Greenwell:

    Gritty gets up out of his chair, makes a lunging motion, and punches my son in the lower right side of his back.
