See the above photo of lamp. Ain't it beautiful?
I got home from work last night about 1/4 to 12:00. I walk into the kitchen and there is this beautiful lamp lit up sitting on the kitchen counter. Bruce wanted me to see it as soon as I walked in.
The story behind the lamp is this. Bruce is a master auto tech for Chrysler Dodge. He works at Herb Chambers. If you Google Herb Chambers he owns just about all the dealerships in MA. Bruce said he flew to their store once in his helicopter, landed it right there on the lot and Mr. Bruce got to shake hands with him. When he came home and told me that story you would have thought he had met the Queen of England.
Anyway back to the lamp story. One of Bruce co-workers, well his wife died from cancer a year ago. He was just now cleaning all her stuff out, throwing most of it away. He told Bruce she ordered that lamp while she was sick, that she loved it's beauty. He was going to throw it away, but then thought about me. I guess men do talk at work. Bruce told him what I was going through. Anyway he brought the lamp to work and told Bruce to give it to me.
Some of you may think it's gaudy but I absolutely love it. It weighs a good 15 pounds. I think it's made heavy so it won't fall over and break the stained glass.
Anyway I thought it was pretty damn sweet this guy passed it on instead of throwing it out. And Bruce gets bonus points for sharing his feelings at work.
If you could see the man when I say Bruce I want to talk about my feelings, he gets this look on his face and his eyes roll up in his head, it's pretty darn funny. Sometime I do it just to get the reaction. :)
