The Rubber Broom

We forgot to tell you that mom did come home with one item from the Durham Fair. 
A rubber broom!

All that good stuff she could have come home with and she's so excited about this stoopid rubber broom.
 It's even got a squeegee on it so she can wash windows outside!  Whoopee, mom!
 Mom is one of these people that NEVER buys gimmicky stuff at fairs.  She actually turns her head away so she won't have to be rude and get sucked in and say no to people - but Maureen - the one that was showing off the HUGE warm donut (and yes, mom did eat the whole thing all by herself) said that she already owned one of these brooms and that it worked fabulously!    If you bought one, you got the second one for free so mom and Maureen went half and they both went home with a rubber broom!

Mom is extremely impressed with the job that it did in her kitchen on the floors and on the rugs.
She just ran the sweeper yesterday and look at all that dirt!  Who could have possibly tracked all of that inside in just 1 day?!
 Guess what?
I got groomed yesterday and I am one happy girl in this humid summer-like weather. 
What happened to the cool fall temps that we had last week?
Please bring them back in a hurry!
So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

That broom looks like fun! Does it play?

Hmmm.... never heard of such a thing, but if it works on dog dirt, might have to pick one up.

You look fabulous! My mom has one of those brooms, but doesn't know where it is at the moment...probably in the garage. It works really well on a completely flat floor. Doesn't work so well on our kitchen floor where the wood pieces are beveled and made to look like bricks. The squeegy is great on our two ginormous windows!

Have a great week!


Gus said...

Miss look bootiful. And the broom must be better than the vacuum - at least it won't growl back at you, right?


Mack said...

You look so unimpressed by that broom!
I bet it would be super fun to chase and nip at it!!


Kess And Her Mama said...

You look really spiffy Maggie! I don't know why humans are so into cleaning gadgets. My human swears by her Black and Decker electric broom. She says with me shedding all the time, it helps keep our floor relatively fur free.

Remington said...

Lookin' good, my friend! Cool broom too!

Sam said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, my mom has a couple of mops that look exactly like the one your mom just got. My mom likes it alot too cause we all have black furs and our carpets are a kind of beige so the mop gets used alot. Oh Maggie, wow you look beautiful. We could go on walks together.

Lookin good Maggie! We have two of those brooms here. They work great and they are fantastic for cleaning the snow off of the car in the winter!

Barbara said...

We have one of those and it works great on getting hair out of rugs!! Trixie and Minnie bark at it every time, too!

Well I figure if it makes the Mom happy then it is a good thing.

But Maggie, no treats from the fair? Maybe you should bit the new broom!

woos, Tessa

Our mom goes gaga over any new cleaning products. She would have brought one of those cool brooms home, too.

Hope it cools down again for you!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

My walks on Monday were almost jungle like!

PeeEssWoo: I khan't believe they didn't bring woo any snakhkies from the fair!

Sam said...

Mom has one of those too - she doesn't mind using it on the tile, but when she tries the carpet it gives her the shiveries!


Alien said...

Hmm. i think I need one of those rubber brooms.


Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Making sure that you two made it home safely from Opus's birthday party. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our special celebration with him.
That is one fancy broom for sure. Let us know how it works out for your mommie.

Ruby and Penny said...

You look gorgous Maggie and that broom looks interesting. Mom says she has to look for one. She is always running the vacuum.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - we are haveing hot humid weather too. It should be colder here. We should be expecting snow.

Berts Blog said...

Well, you look just lovely Miss Maggie. I wonder if a good grooming would help me.

My Vickie says I smell like dirty water and look like a dried up creek bed.....


Love the broom. I think we could for sure use one of those.


Stardust said...

I'm one of those who can't say no too. It's very awkward.

Maggie, you're really looking pretty and dreamy there!

Duke said...

Dear Maggie, you are so beeyoutteefull, will you marry me? (sssh, don't tell my other Maggie!)

Niamh said...

We want fall weather too Maggie. But we don't want to be groomed! You look fabulous though.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose
