For this week, I've chosen >>>
Henry is one of those Message Bears that you used to be able to buy in Post Offices and are now available in lots of other places too. In different styles. Mostly skinny. I like my chubby Henry.
When I found out the shoe factory was definitely closing down, I wanted a way to remember all my friends.
So, I bought Henry and when there was only one or two weeks left I took him in to work and asked a few people to sign their names and then pass him on.
A couple of people got a little cheeky with their autographs....
Well, Henry made his way all over the factory, even into the children's shoes department
before he got back to me, then I took him into the office area and had the bosses and supervisors sign him too.
The Union rep was there and he signed Henry too.
I even asked one of the machinists to insert an eyelet in Henry's ear for an earring.
Unfortunately, before I took Henry in, many of my friends had already left and taken jobs elsewhere, but I still have a lot of signatures.
After all this time however I can't remember who some of the people are.
I wish now that I'd taken photos too.
Some of them I didn't know in the first place, because it was a big factory and I mostly only knew the people in my department, men's shoes, and the ones in the women's shoes area.
Hard, hard day for a mouse
