    I'm wondering about the shampoo he was planning on using to wash. I wonder if this was his first time to wash?? I'm so glad you were there to come to the rescue :>)

    Those quilts had to give a lot of comfort to those long haul truckers. Having a family connection makes the lonely days not quite so lonely. You were so thoughtful in helping with the washing, and because of it you were able to come away with a heart warming story that all of us can appreciate. Thanks to you and to them.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    Same thought I had, I could just visualize those washers overflowing if they had used shampoo.
    But I do use a few drops of shampoo for handwash on occassion.
    And so happy they love their quilts!

    It is such a warm thought that these men travel with their grandmother's quilts. And you were nice to help out and be a friendly soul so far from home.

    That is such a nice story. I'm glad you helped them out. I bet grandma would be happy to know that someone helped him wash it up right.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    What a beautiful story. Seems that was a lesson for us. We enjoy the process of taking the time to cut, piece and quilt with material and hope that it is appreciated because we do what we love. Those to men just showed us that what we do will be appreciated wether we get to see it in our life time or not. I am touched and grateful by your story. Thank you. And it was nice of you to offer your detergent. It showed them that they had reason to cherish what their grandmother did for them. We are all connected to love.
    Believe, it can be done!
