Thursday part 3

When I said the rugs were being hauled into the garage, I actually meant they are being spread about the back yard.

Anybody want to buy a rug? Good price for you.
This is approximately a third of what I will have. Two more shipments incoming.
Obtuse - next post will be a diary one, tomorrow.

Wow. When you said 453kgs of rugs I thought you were being dramatic.

That there's a lot of rugs.

What on earth are you going to do with them all?

suze2000 said...

OMG! Why so many rugs?!

Leilani said...

Ditto as above - what's with the rugs?

Melba said...

I guess the easiest explanation is that my ex-husband is a rug dealer. That's the best way of putting it. And all his stock from around the world seems to be converging on my garage.

suze2000 said...

Huh! I suspected that.

If I had any spare money at all, I'd be asking questions about what you have (I still want a nice sofra, 13 years after my trip to Turkey). But I don't. :(

Melba said...

Lack of money never stopped him from doing a deal, suze!

Payment plans and everything!!!! We can do a good deal for you.

You've been to Turkey, you know how it goes.

magical_m said...

Yes but will you offer me an apple tea?

That's the one memory that sticks out from my trip to Turkey... "hello, yes please - carpet? apple tea for you pretty lady if you come see carpet".


Melba said...

I'm sure it can be arranged, m_m.

I'd just have to drive to Sydney Road to get it, that's all!

Are they magic carpets? I want one!

Pepsi said...

Lovely carpets, I love carpets.

I got locked in a carpet shop last year, twas Friday lunch time and they all wandered off to prayer.

I drank all their coffee, smoked their pipe and took photos of all the lovely carpets.

(I dont own any carpets, but I like shopping for them)

Another Outspoken Female beat me to it, but I too was wondering if any are flying carpets, or 'magic carpets', as she puts it.

I guess she has first dibs on it if there is only one, but if you have a variety of flight-capable models, let me know. Or, if the magic carpet is sizable enough, perhaps Another Outspoken Female would be kind enough to offer me a lift.
