Funny you should say this. After moving out of the house Buck and I shared, I don't have the room for a treadle machine...the same one I sewed on as a young girl. I'm looking for good, new home for it.

I did pick up a really good find today though.
Pac, this should probably go in the Stray Thoughts thread, but since it's a gun question....can you tell me what gun it is that they used to call an "ack-ack" gun? TIA.

I just got into collectible guns, but I think it's a big WWII gun used to shoot at airplanes or tanks maybe? No idea where it got it's name. I think I saw it on the Military channel. Like one of those guns with wheels on them.

You should see the beauty I picked up yesterday It's about 100 years old and looks like it was made yesterday. The craftsmanship is outstanding.

Well this morning I packed away the Christmas knick-knacks and dusted. I was proud of myself I found them all on the first pass. Usually I miss a couple and then have to haul the boxes back out to put them away. Now things look a little depressing. It happens every year!

I thought the Rose Parade was on the 1st. Is it always on the 2nd of January now? Is it because the 1st was on a Sunday? Am I terribly out of date? Maybe decades?

Eyeing the massive piles of vacay laundry to be washed, and nursing a nasty "achoo" cold while stuffing a box of Puffs Plus up my nose. Too wiped out to do much else.

I hope your cold passes quickly, Dawgluver. Take it easy on yourself while you feel badly. You deserve it.

Unwinding. Was planning on yesterday as unwinding from the holidays day, but wound up meeting people for lunch, having a few over for afternoon snacks/drinks. So today it is making some poke and steaming some rice. A load or 3 of laundry. But mostly sitting around drinking wine, reading, and snacking and this and catching up with friends I regularly email with.
