  • "Miz Lurley"

    This is from a Harold Enlow rough out I got back in September. I like doing something a little different from my usual cowboy/hillbilly/Santa and it was fun painting her up, like she was going to town. That used to be a big occasion for folks that lived out in the country! I remember roaming the aisles of the five-and-dime store, calculating what all I could buy with the quarter or whatever money I had.Thanks for looking!

    Mike, you've done it again!...not only a fantastic carving, but your paint job is a 10+ outta 10...
    and I swear that old lady lived just down the road from me when I was growing up.......we used to call her " Aunt Lilla"...

      Boy, Mike, you got Miz Lurley certainly all gushy up for that town visit. As usual, Well done sir.
      You know Mike, I never lived anyway from town, but I can remember those visit to Woolworth

        Your carving is just great. Her name is appropriate. Well done all round.

        I also liked your story. When I was a kid, my parents took me and my brother to visit our grandparents each summer. When in Burk's Falls (rural Ontario, where they lived), it was exactly as you described. Drew and I would go to the local general store and spent our bounty. Thanks for bringing back the memories. And thanks for Miz Lurley.

        Where was this rural area you speak so fondly of?

          Miz Lurley's got a wandering eye, I hope she's not shoplifting. Wonderful job carving and painting.

                    Northwest Alabama is where I grew up. We lived in Rockwood, near my grandparents and then near an aunt. Russellville was "town".
