Show and Tell



Well, I've got Walmart on the brain so I thought I'd show you my votive candle holder.
I worked in the Walmart Pharmacy in Waco, Tx from 93-97 while I was going to college. While I was there I worked with the man who I still say is the best manager I've ever had. His name is Rob Sellers, RPh. Rob if you're out there, I want you to know how much I appreciated you. Rob's hobby was wood working. He made three candleholders to see how they looked. Each was a little different. When I left Waco to go to Nursing School, Rob let me choose from the three. This is the one I chose. I have many fond and some funny memories of my time at Walmart. And some that are not so wonderful. But I always remember Rob with great fondness and I still think he is one heck of a great guy. It was a pleasure to work for you Rob, and thanks for the candleholder!

Go on over to Kelli's to see all the other Show and Tells!

Good Afternoon MightyMom,
That candle holder is beautiful. I love homemade things. They have more meaning than store bought things does to me. I love candles and candle holders myself. I have so many candles it isnt't funny. It was so nice that your former manager made it for you. I know it will always hold a special place in your heart. Take care my friend and have a great Friday and weekend. God Bless You.

Hugs,
Karen H.

One thing about it, you know it's unique, and he might be famous one day for his woodworking.
