Nora face cropSome years ago, Thelma, a friend of my mother’s, was traveling somewhere in the Midwestern United States and spotted this blanket. It was clearly made to celebrate or advertise a company specializing in bulldozers, backhoes, and other heavy machinery. A quick Google search would lead me to believe that it is probably for Rasmussen Equipment Company. Anyway, Thelma bought it for my mother because it had her last name on it. At some point the blanket was given to me, and I have had it in my possession for many years now. Since we moved into our house, it has been on our sofa, often pulled down on top of the sofa’s occupant(s) on chilly evenings.

Nora is a Rasmussen
Nora seems content to be a Rasmussen, but then she doesn’t yet know anything about safety, quality or service.

    Safety and service, probably not, but she looks like a quality product to me.

    • I’d have to agree with you, Josh. She’s a non-walking example of how dangerous gravity is, and no matter how many times we tell her to, she still won’t get up from the table and make us some coffee after a meal. But when she turns on the Quality light, it shines awfully bright.

      Of course she did spend nine months inside someone whose official job title is Quality Director.

  • Nora looks absolutely adorable, those blue eyes are a stunner! Not the mention the slightly-less-wonderful-looking blanket lurking behind. Just kidding, it does have its rustic, hand-woven charm.
