I was just called on by the oldest Fuller Brush salesman in the US!

  1. Maybe the only one. He backs up my gravel driveway with wheels spinning, and we never get anyone out here- and there's this humped over octogenarian in farmer jeans. The products are way overpriced and I bought foot balm and witch hazel hand cream. He was soo nice and comes from this famous little hollow called Guffy. Lived in the same house for 75 yrs. Hands shook with Parkinson's. Anyone need anything? A brush perhaps?
    Hairbrush, toilet brush, grill brush, grout and tile brush......

    Get out! I thought the Fuller Brush Man went the way of Brylcreem, Burma Shave signs, Father Knows Best and the dodo bird.

    They seriously still sell door to door?

    A brush for cleaning gills, I mean grills!
    Yes, did anyone see the TV movie on the door to door salesman-he was big ears and slow. It was very touching and that's what I thought of right away. This man was very precious. I love him.

    I sobbed through that movie-what a great story! Hoping they'll replay it again so my family can catch it
