Rasmussen Blanket

Some years ago, Thelma, a friend of my mother's, was traveling somewhere in the Midwestern United States and spotted this blanket. It was clearly made to celebrate or advertise a company specializing in bulldozers, backhoes, and other heavy machinery. A quick Google search would lead me to believe that it is probably for Rasmussen Equipment Company. Anyway, Thelma bought it for my mother because it had her last name on it. At some point the blanket was given to me, and I have had it in my possession for many years now. Since we moved into our house, it has been on our sofa, often pulled down on top of the sofa's occupant(s) on chilly evenings. Nora is a Rasmussen

Nora seems content to be a Rasmussen, but then she doesn't yet know anything about safety, quality or service.
