Double Wedding Ring Auction at

Bunkhouse Quilts.  Tell her I sent you.  Here's a picture of the DWRs... used with her permission, and I figured out (all by myself) how to put it on this post. Aren't you proud? (I haven't used that phrase - all by myself - in a mighty long time.)



She got me to thinking about shopping in the olden days... Remember, Grannies, how it was to shop at a real department store? Sears, Penny's.... In our town - at the time - it was Roth's. It was a closely packed store with different departments, all manned with a couple of people and a manager... how did the store ever make money?  When you walked in you felt like the Queen. There were friendly people everywhere to help you find something. My hubby worked there for years before we met. He was kind of a jack of all trades, running the elevator - you didn't just push a button in those days. He helped carry things, deliver stuff, assemble bikes, etc. I loved shopping there.

And I promised a picture of Rudy with his pink toy:

Rudy, with his pink toy, and Trouble... oh, and their "parents". They walk by our house every morning, and Rudy has a toy - a different one on occasions. They say he has a whole bunch of "babies" to choose from. Today is the special pink one.

I petted him a couple of times after the pictures he posed for... then he decided the photo shoot was over and started for home and his comfy bed.  If only you knew, Rudy, how much joy you impart to the neighborhood. We get a chuckle every morning.

I got the quilting done yesterday, and it's binding and  those afore mentioned teepees today. What are you working on?

Hugs,
Terri

    1. Hi Sheila,
      Did you see? On the day before's blog he had a beige one. When I ran out to take a picture the Mom said she would get him to take the special pink one next day... He's one of the fun characters in our neighborhood.
      Hugs!

  3. Oh Rudy is so cute with his baby. My husband laughs at two of our dogs because every time someone comes in the front door they run and grab "babies" to meet whoever it is.

    1. Hi Angie, I wonder what that is. I'll bet they are being good hosts and sharing their valuables with guests. I don't know what logic there is to Rudy's babies, but maybe he is sharing the walk with them... they are always so cooped up at home. I do think that dogs are smarter than we know.
      Hugs!

  4. Oh la what a character! No wonder you laugh at him. :-) I hope to see the quilt soon.

    I think the standard of some shop service has gone down hill. Daughter and I went into one very small jewellery shop on Lord Street. 4 20 something female assistants stood in a huddle talking about someone who was on maternity leave and how much weight she had gained. We were totally ignored,so walked out. When you compare this with the Wesley Street Sweet Shop where you are greeted with a smile, chatted to and handed samples, you know where you are more likely to buy things in the future.
