Wendell August... Forge

Look what Mom got to do....

While I was in Pencil Vane E Ah to visit Sarge.. Mom and Sarge's Mom went to have some Girrrrl fun and All of US GUYS stayed at home.
One place they went was to Wendell August Forge. They make the most amazing thingys there. And they were having a special deal.. that gave everybuddy a VERY THIN piece of Aluminum and a Rubber Mallet and you were able to choose which of 6 pawsible designs that you wanted to hammer into the sheet of alum.. Of COURSE.. mom chose the Dawg. AND look.. it made a PICTURE and they even gave her a paper "Frame" to put it in.
Now Aluminum is VERY SHINY and VERY VERY hard to take a good picture of.
Mom also got two new Coasters fur coffee cups.. Did you SEE??? One has a Script E and the other has a Script F. And guess WHAT??? Those stand fur Ernie and Frankie. hehehe
This place has been in operation since the 1920's. If you would like to see MORE about how they do the beautiful work and some of the super things they make you can go HERE.
It Really is fascinating.
PeeS... they also make thingys from Pewter, Bronze, Copper, and Silver. My mom just pawfers.. aluminum. She has ONE coaster that is from 1992.. for the 500th. anniversary of when Christopher Columbus Discovered the "New World".
