Brushes but no lemons?

My neighborhood is well served by travelling salesmen and women. Their main product appears to be brushes, which might explain why the streets in my neighborhood are so clean.

So far I have not seen a lady who sells brushes and lemons so it would appear that brushes sell well without the need for additional enticement. 

You may remember that I discovered that lemons are irresistible to Georgians and are often used by ladies who sell things to lure customers to their mobile shops. 

On our walk through our neighborhood today we saw a lady who sells brushes. In fact, she had just made a sale and was waiting for the lady of the house to return with money.

The average price for one of these traditional handmade brushes is 4-5 Lari, which is about two and a half US dollars.

The tall person likes the handmade brushes and we have a number of them in our house. I like chewing them so we tend to buy them frequently!

I am beginning to think that the ladies who sell brushes spray them with something that is irresistable to dogs so that they are chewed and have to be replaced often, increasing their sales and profit.

I have huge respect for the ladies who sell things. I think they are very clever businesswomen.

Good news from the BBC

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night everyone and thank you for tuning into the BBC News (Bassa’s Blogging Channel).

This is your good news correspondent, Bassa, reporting from Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.

It’s been another great day for good news.

Our top story is from one of my favorite blogs, Bumpy Road to Bubba and is sure to bring a smile to your face.

In this heart warming story you will hear how Bella (a rescue dog) found her forever home with Mumma, Bear and beautiful Poppy Grace (bubba).

I think Mumma is a very special lady. She says in her blog that she tries to perform one random act of kindness each day – what a wonderful thing to do!

Enjoy this very lovely story.

That’s all folks. Remember, good news makes you feel good. Be part of Bassa’s good news!
