These overalls tell a story. I literally lived in them! Although I don't wear them in public anymore, they are a treasured part of my life! I painted three books in these and MANY MANY rooms too. The roller marks are from a stubborn roller that wouldn't stay put on the handle.... I got tired of stopping constantly, grabbing plastic and pushing the roller back on... SO I improvised and used my body covered with overalls to push the roller back on.
There are MANY MANY MORE stories in these overalls that I could tell.
Okay.... Just one more! Dave and I used to go to Iola Car Show every year in Iola, Wisconsin. It is a HUGE CAR show. There are also MILES AND MILES of JUNK parts... Every mechanic's dream lives there! There is always a craft show at the local school (with really NICE inside bathrooms)... WELL... it was about one hundred degrees outside. Dave for some reason packed my clothes. I don't remember why... but guess what he packed? These bibs! They came in handy when I had to carry a fricken bumper for his Nova back to our HOTEL... (the caravan with no seats in the back parked in the campgrounds across the street). Well right then, he owed me one! We walked down to the craft show and of course I couldn't wait to get in there to cool off in the bathroom and get washed up. There were two ladies a little bit older than I was at the time... They were just staring at me and smiling. I smiled back .... THEN THEY ASKED THE QUESTION...."Where did you get those jeans?" I had to laugh out loud at first... until I realized they were serious!
Have a GREAT hump day all you Camel LOVERS out there! Thanks for reading my silly story about my treasured find today!
BIG HUGS and lots of Love!
