Two Shoes - Stuck, Together

Two Shoes Tuesdsay

Stuck, Together
 The first thing that comes to my mind, is a little assignment I had this morning.  My sweet hubby helped me with some housework that involved dusting some shelves on which he has his collections of Walruses and various childhood toys.


This guy is about three inches long and has huge tusks.  Unfortunately one of the tusks broke off when it inadvertently dropped on the floor.  If you look really close you will see that there is still a crack on the one on the right from some splintered ceramic. But at least the tusk is stuck back in place on the face of the walrus.

  
This is actually one of my favorites.  It's very tiny and made of ivory.  The problem with this guy was that his base had come loose from the walrus, and it is now stuck back onto the walrus.

Together these two little collectibles have been returned to their place on the shelving among the 30 some other creatures.




Jerry and I can get the house cleaned in a pretty short time.  He doesn't mind helping me out with special projects, such as his shelves and some vacuuming.  We've stuck together now for almost 30 years, and have a good life. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday.  All of us bloggers will work together to address the challenges of the Two Shoes Tuesday.

The walrus collection started with one that was carved by an Eskimo in Canada. Since the man has just about anything a man could want, the kids and I, as well as friends, started being on the lookout for an unusual walrus. We even have a big one (about 8 inches tall) that is sitting on a rope swing. It's been fun.

Love the walrus collection. I have a pelican collection that dates back over 30 years as well.

Congratulations on being "stuck together" for thirty years, that's a testament to love and commitment in a society where long-term marriage becomes more and more rare! I not only adore the little walruses, but I adore your husband for giving you a helping hand with vacuuming and dusting. Housework is much less tedious and time consuming if both pitch in. Papa Bear is great about vacuuming, which is really painful for me if I do much of it. This was a great take on things stuck together in a good way, thank you for sharing at Two Shoes Tuesday!

How GREAT that your walrus had the tusk back♪ And I really am happy to hear that you two are having happy marriage life 'stuck together',Linda♡♡♡ My husband isn't helpful for household work like most of Japanese husband. But as a retired bank clerk, I can depend on him for almost all the formalities p;) Like when I lost my parents and brother. We've been married 36 years and l am happy we could stuck together, haha.

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
