I watched Allen, our plow guy do both my neighbours lane ways. And waited for him to come up mine and waited but no snow plow. Then I saw Bill come plowing through with his pick-up truck.
I told him that I thought he forgot about me as the lane wasn't done. He told me he hadn't & was 1/3 of the way up our lane & was in our side ditch! Oh my, now I felt real bad for him. Bill & a friendly neighbour helped shovel him out.
Good luck on getting your tractor fix. See you next plow time!
Bill had to go through security this morning to get on his flight to Moncton.
While in security, two woman security officers were talking, he could hear them say, ''Well I think they're dishes.", the other said "I don't know I see other things". Well that was Bill's suitcase that they were talking about.
''Excuse me sir, is this your suitcase?" Yes, replied Bill. We would like to see the contents of your suitcase, could you open it? He did and as he did, he started to explain that his wife had a Royal Doulton, Bunnykins collection & wanted to have it with her for Easter.
Neither woman knew what a Bunnykins was. As they opened the carefully packaged items they were delighted at the contents, ''Oh look at this one" the other would say, " Oh you have to see this one!" After several were unwrapped & revealed, Bill asked politely, "Excuse me, can I go now?" Yes was replied.
How funny to have these dishes & figurines, put smiles & giggles into these working professionals.
After hearing the story from Bill, it made my day, that Barbra Vernon would make people just as happy as she did with her figure drawings on children dishes, from the 1930's!
It's a wonderful story.
Here's some of dishes that I've been collecting since the 70's up to now.
Notice the name on the right, those are the antique dishes, she was a nun in a convent & it was her father that took her drawings to be made into children's dishes. She would go bling & could no longer draw & the popularity of the dishes took off. So an artist did her styling & added a mouse in the picture as his signature. Who would know?!
Funny how I had two bowls for one puppy, must have been at a good price! lol Handy now!!
Thank you sweetheart, you are my soulmate! Forever And A Day!
The Floor Is Finished!
Baseboards to go on, then a new coat of paint on the walls & furniture so I can sit & really enjoy that room! The two coats of varnish need some hardening time. Till then I'm enjoying the 'echoing room'.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Thank you for stopping in. I hope you too were delighted with the Royal Doulton - Bunnykins! The story alone should have made you laugh!
Stay safe & warm.
