God Save the Queen

Several of us from Gardner's Company received a huge honor today. Several of our guys were invited to serve as an honor guard for the Queen of England's visit today, and boy was it awesome!

At first it seemed that the women of Gardner's were going to be grouped along with the public, which was fine, but things improved dramatically once we were on site.

We were able to commandeer a most excellent vantage point.

And we were able to see just about everything from here, particularly our guys looking absolutely splended as the honor guard when the Queen left the Fort. Ron is in the foreground and Tom is in the background (most clearly, anyway). You can see Harv as well.

How awesome was that!

It must have been really exciting to see the men escort the Queen. Few people get to attend something like this. Thank you for sharing and including pictures.

Marty's father Don made his living as a door-to-door vacuum salesman in North

Central Florida. As a child, Marty would ride his bike to his father's store

to wait for his father and watch the repairmen fix vacuum and sewing machines.

Soon, he was actually learning to do the
repairs himself. After years of doing this, he was hired to take the place

of a repairman who left the business. He eventually opened his own business,

Vacuum and Sewing and after 38 years, he is still happy to provide expert

sales and service to all of his customers.

Vacuum and Sewing Center is proud of its huge inventory of machines, parts

and supplies including hard to find items. If Marty doesn't have it, chances

are it can no longer be found anywhere!

In our online store, you'll get the same great, down-to-earth service and

products the Dixon family has given for over 50 years.
