Captain Jack lives out in Willis..Well-travelled..nice collection of oriental rugs acquired at the source or native marketplace. We have been maintaining them for decades. He likes the work. Ho hum!
From his rocker near a full sized pilot's wheel near his rocking chair he reflects. . Yep stocked fish in those ponds down there. Big fish. Been a long time since I could get down there..its overgrown..knees aren't quite up to it. That cowpath will get you down to the water if you want to try your luck. Watch out for gators.. and the cottonmouth protecting their little ones.
Just then a huge fish lunged out of the water and made a big splash. A large pair of gator eyes came to the surface tore at the water with an impressive set of teeth and sank back down to the cool depths. . Sounds like fun Captain.. Might be good to add a really big stick to my fishing tackle.
A clinic near Spring had a depressingly dirty waiting room rug..
Cleaned up nice. Must have been a sort of Christmas party when we returned. They were unusually delighted with the results.
This was the strangest coincidence ever. One crisp autumn Saturday morning we approached a sizeable Victorian mansion. As instructed we hallooed a set of open french doors at the requested side entrance. A beautiful cockatiel parrot sitting on an ornate white cage was singing soprano and fanning its colorful head dress of feathers at our approach. A beautiful white persian cat was curled up so fluffy and serene on a hand carved high backed chair just as I had remembered it the year before.
The old cat box smell was gone. That adding a second box suggestion must have worked. A year ago she had been so upset with her very lovely expensive feline misbehaving on her lovely and expensive oriental rugs .
Second cat box must have worked I dared to mention. No..she responded softly.. I looked over at the cat sleeping peacefully on the chair as she remarked..Such a beautiful cat. I kept him anyway. I like him so much better now. Had him stuffed.
Just then the parrot sitting on the ornate antique cage started singing ..like a professional opera star..so sweetly so flawlessly with absolutely perfect pitch.
On return of the rugs I recall..that was the best rug cleaning she had ever received.
A week later we received another call. A smaller house. Smaller rugs. .
She was the one who had mentioned how successful the second cat box had worked. I refused to bring the subject up as I looked over at her normal short hair black and white cat curled up under the early twinkling Christmas tree. It was badly stuffed.
Truth can be not only strange but weirder than fiction.
Such a relief it was when we got to Tomball and customer response was
Rugs look good ..have a good one.
Galveston O Galveston !
Every day I walk in Memorial Park with my best friend. He can't leave his shoes at the door. Thanks for keeping my rugs looking good.
Before writing the check she turned to me from her small desk and reflected softly..you know Duane its been 25 years you have been cleaning my (18) oriental rugs.. Each tick on the ancient familiar grandfather clock in the great room harmonized with the crackling fireplace for a zen moment a blessed eternity passing as I felt myself respond with a genuine and heartfelt..
A big Gulf storm blew thru the Woodlands one hot summer evening.. There in the sunroom at the back of her historical ranch house Miss V stood at the large baywindows of her sunroom marvelling at the violence of the elements. An ancent and mighty oak stood tall and mighty a monument to the generations of blood kin that had once lived in her big rambling ranch house.
Chain lightening framed the sturdy oak followed by a resounding boom. She jerked and her pulse quickened and turned quickly to seek the comfort of her nearby bedroom behind her at the other side of the room.
Just as she exited and turned into the short hall adjacent to her bedroom a terrifying crash came from the sunroom and glass splattered thru the hallway entrance she had just entered safely..
Looking back into the sunroom she saw that the big old oak had fallen thru her roof suspended by the short brick wall that supported the windows. It was right where she had been standing moments before!
The next day she thumbed through her personal address book and found our phone number. We carefully removed the glass and storm debris covered wet rug from under the huge felled oak . Whew! Close call for lady and rug. Could make some people want to join a thankful choir.
Customer out in Bellaire remarks to her gentle pit bull. Ya know Mo.. That patch looks better than that ugly hole. Not a perfect match but it works. Granny would have approved.
Meanwhile back at the ranch..

More About Rugs :
RUGS are made in Asia..From the Orient..The Far East.. China and Vietnam in the east to Turkey, Maghreb countries, Cyprus and Iran in the west and the
Caucasus in the north to India in the south. People from different cultures, countries, racial groups and religious faiths are involved in the production of oriental rugs. Oriental rugs are organized
by origin: Persian rugs, Arab rugs, Anatolian rugs, Kurdish rugs, Caucasian rugs, Central Asian rugs, Turkestanian (Turkmen, Turkoman) rugs, Chinese rugs, Tibetan rugs and Indian rugs. An authentic
oriental rug is a handmade carpet that is either knotted with pile or woven without pile.
AREA RUGS are power-loomed factory-made like modern clothing is today. The dyes are clothing dyes (electro-static).. not ancient vegetable dyes . Modern dyes seem to be more resistant to color runs and fade. Styles vary between oriental rug art & modern design themes.
