And I’m not talking chocolate, either, Amigos.
This is Hershey
Since Pretty has retired from the Mast General Store, she and her best buddy Super Shelley have been keeping the roads hot between Prosperity and West Columbia…working on Pretty’s new antique booth business adventures. Occasionally the old woman Slow tags along, but she is generally in the way and has been referred to behind her back as the proverbial bull in the china shop, but you didn’t hear it from me.
The Red Man has been largely ignored during these outings – and never invited to ride along for the ride. Never.
Sunday afternoon Slow tagged along with Pretty and Super Shelley while they took stuff to the Three Rivers Antique Shop in West Columbia. They’re getting ready for the big Grand Opening this coming Saturday from 11 – 2 and are in a tizzy with their pricing and re-arranging the items, blah, blah, blah. It’s a circus.
So Slow comes home and all she can talk about is Hershey. Hershey this. Hershey that. How cute was Hershey. Ad nauseum.
Apparently their friend Paul has the booth right behind them at the Three Rivers Antique Shop, and he brought his dog Hershey with him Sunday for a little fun outing. Slow even took a picture of Hershey – she was so taken with his cuteness. I don’t get it. What’s the big deal? So he’s a cute dog that Paul can carry around like a baby. So what?
Where, oh where, was The Red Man’s invitation for a Sunday outing? Lost in the mail, perhaps. Lost in the evites maybe. But lost, regardless.
Well, well, well, Now I see how I really rate around here – and how swell it must be to live at Hershey’s house with someone who appreciates the importance of an affirmative inclusion policy for his dog.
Hm. I might just make up a sign for my new social justice issue: Take Red to Three Rivers Today!
Get me outta here, Percy. I’m a doggie on the edge…stay tuned, Sports Fans.
Harrrumphhhh Red Man – this will not do. Bet they catch on [HINT HINT] that a dog is a great way to attract customers at their antique stall…
Animal Couriers ROCK!! They recognize the importance of family in the business setting – might even start selling some leashes and treats!! 🙂
Cassie P, and I will pawprint your petition, Red, seeing as we feel left out when it comes to Ma’s trips to the Big Red Devil!! Bell, we’ll even organize a March on Three Rivers to further the cause of “no dog left behind!”
Love and Sloppy Poppy Kisses!!!
Uh, that should read HELL, not Bell!!! Stupid autocorrections!!! 😬
Tacky autocorrections 🙂
Of course, Poppy, you have the perfect slogan for our Inclusion Policy Statement: NO DOG LEFT BEHIND!!
We love it!!
We wonder if you will be our new Campaign Manager?? 🙂
Hugs and kisses,
Your Red Man
But of course! We’ll nag Ma into designing a logo too. 😀
Yes, good Campaign Managers always know how to recruit the best artists for their design work, and your Ma is perfect!! 🙂
Red, Hershey has that baby thing down pat. That’s the way he gets his way. You are too in control for that. Too powerful. So no worries. Your family knows who is really in charge there.
Yes, Luanne, you are absolutely right about this – that Hershey is a Baby Boy – ha! WE would never resort to such chicanery for attention!! 🙂

Good luck with your grand opening. I used to run an antique store the same way you are. I loved it. Have fun
Yes, I remembered you had an active interest in the antique business, Terry – you and Pretty would have a lot to talk about! She LOVES it!! 🙂 Hope you will have a good weekend!

Red, don’t worry about Hershey, especially since you are the thinking and creative one who writes this post. I like hearing about Shelley and Pretty’s adventures in antiques. Sounds like the kind of Road Show adventure life I would enjoy. I hope Slow is feeling better, as always keeping her in my thoughts. You brought out my “feelings” about chocolate and need to get some, very soon. Throwing you a bone and pat on the head for being patient and very useful around the Casa, Red! 🙂
Thanks so much, Robin! We always are happy to hear from you…yes Slow has much improved but still has a few coughing spells here and there. Shelley and Pretty thoroughly enjoy the antique business, and Slow goes along with whatever adventures Pretty thinks up! By all means, indulge your chocolate feelings. Nothing beats Hershey…hope you’ve had a good weekend!
