Well, anyway, the big entertainment of the evening -- never mind the video we got at the library -- was sitting out on the porch to watch the wrecker-guy hook up the car to tow it away!
Another 'friend' we recently bid farewell to -- but in much happier circumstances! -- was the serger that Bruce bought for me early in our marriage, when we were far away from home and money was really tight (he was in law school). I was attempting garment sewing and sorely missing my mom's machine...and somehow Bruce scraped together enough to surprise me with a serger! The old girl is still running like a top, but I recently inherited my mom's serger when she upgraded, so I set the old serger aside and was waiting for a new home for it, when I heard about a friend who wanted her first serger...voila! So my beloved first serger has a new home, which makes me very happy!
