Ohhh...Louie....

Oh My.....I sold the 50's Sofa...to make room....for Sweet Louie....{ The Louis the XV...Sofa....I LOVE!) I said...if he  made it through Gold Rush...and doesn't sell... he's going in the shop!}
We had a heck of a time, getting the mid century sofa out...oh dear.... then...we had even a more Horrendous time...getting Louie in! {John and Mark were going to give up...Not Me! Where there is a Will...there is a Way! and yes...Louis...fit most perfectly in the Little Shop...{after we took the door off.... and cleared a wide path!} Oh My...it was AMAZING....for all of 20 minutes.... Pal, Val...came Bee Boppin' in.... Gasped....{like I did...when I first laid eyes on Louis.....} and bought Him.... I wanted to Cry..... I Love Louie....
She took all the down cushions with... and we'll get it delivered....this morning....'til then....I've had to look at naked, Louie....
Amy and Peg.... were at the Shop... I was totally Bummed... I just sat there... staring at Louie... I told the girls...to sit down, on his cusionless frame...and...we'd have at least one good night of memories... with the Shop...Exactly the way I had envisioned it.... {I would not have sold Louie...to anyone...but, Val..{so...who...but Val...would come in.... at that time...}.I bought Louie, for the shop...for friends...and myself to lounge on.... it was a gift for the Little Shop....it was Perfect...}
We had a few toddies....{me....boo hooing...non stop...} then, went to supper...Dale pulled in, right behind us..when we got home....and we all went back inside the Shop... and did more visiting...with Louie....I snapped a few images... and...don't know what...I'm going to do...with a Huge Gaping Hole....in the Happy Corner of the Shop....Peg and I will work on it....
Louie will be Very...Very happy at Val's.... tho... he won't have the crazy entertainment....of the Rabbit Hole....{Just got off the phone, with Val...she was laughing.... and started to say how sorry she was...{whatever}...but...stopped herself...and said..."I wish there were two of them!"....what ever... She said, she wishes I could have seen my face... when she said she'd take it.... Honey...I didn't have to 'see'....I WAS WEARING IT!!!!
Here they are...Peg...Dale... Amy...ahhh... and Sweet...Sweet.... Louie....Peg grabbed 2 massive cushions, I bought, for a glider....and threw them on Louie.... We all had a Great...Farewell Celebration....
I'll always remember Louie...this way....

Dang....
Love to Ya...

Nooo...Now I'm crying...I thought Louie sold at Gold Rush, so I delt with the fact that I'd never get to see her. I'm happy for Val, although I think Louie wanted to come home with me...sad...
