zoom zoom!

I am walking Nook Thursday, the dog I babysit sometimes.  This is what happens:
We are far from home walking on the Cornell campus and he starts doing those circles...and does his business.  Right by a trash can!  GOOD BOY.  As I scoop and bag I find nearby...2 four leaf clovers!  I am like "Thanks NOOK!" and JUST THEN my favorite car of all time

an Audi TT convertible drives past!
I write a note to Nook's family:  "Nook is a lucky dog!  He helped me find 2 four leaf clovers because he pooped in a lucky spot, by a trash can!  The wife lost a bet and owes me a lottery ticket...if you see me in a new convertible, you will know I won big..."
  I helpfully pick up the ticket  for her to give me and....I win!  TWO DOLLARS.

I am telling all this to the wife, and at the same time I am making car cups in the studio and I am like
"remember that kids book...with the dog in the convertible????" and she NAILS it and
YOU KNOW I love this book, for more than 40 years, right? I never forget anything THAT inspiring...
I am like "I have these 2 car cups in the studio and I should try to sell them...they are the first full size ones, I LOVE them so...I should make more of them...AND give myself the first little one!" That is the first little one above.....

I was wondering when four leaf clover season would start for you.

LOVE Go Dog, Go! Awesome mugs you've made there. (as always!) Have a great weekend!

Lori Buff said...

Go Dog Go was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. Someone should read it with milk in your car mug.

Sold!!! Can't wait for my new mug! I'm getting a nice Gary collection least one piece a year :o)

Thanks Gary! Go Dog Go!!

YOU are a winner! That book; I can still recite most of it. My nephew loved it and I read it to him daily before nap time.
Zoom Zoom...those cups are super cute!
