It's that time when we are again replacing a bed. Poor Jeff, what a sport, never said anything but I was thinking the bed was awful the last time I slept there! Well we are faced with a dilemma if you are on the short side of life. The mattress top sits ~ 33.5"...I think it's a tad high, Joe figures it's okay. Your thoughts would be appreciated before I go to all the work of modifying the bed skirt for the Jolly Green Giant's bed!
