A Whole New Thing

My father-in-law came to visit us this last time I was home.

Joe is easy to talk to, and it was nice to hang out just the three of us for a couple of days.  But I must tell you...

...he brought me a present.

Can you believe this AWESOME GUY??!!

...a thing of great beauty... a joy...

...for the Rest of My Friggin LIFE!!!!

 Mom?  Isn't this the same one you had/have??  These babies last for generations!!  And it comes with a table!  It sits flush!!! you can plainly see.

It's so easy to flip it up and flip it back down, out of sight.  With an extender arm for longer projects!  I am so flipped out about this sewing machine!!!!

He even brought me a box of notions!  MAN!!

And Joe has a hard time getting around, but he got that huge, awkward thing all the way out to me on his own!  I don't think I could have thanked him enough!  Joe, if you ever see this, THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!!  And Jo-Ann, THANK YOU for letting me have it!!  And I will totally teach you to sew!  But you'll have to come visit for the lessons, or we may be air-stitching (like air-guitaring, but less awesome).

You know this starts a Whole New Thing?  It does.  I'm gonna have to start a whole stitching section.  I'm gonna show y'all how to make stuff, alter stuff, and hang tuff theater-style!  Like a ninja!

So while I salivated over my AMAZING AWESOME PRESENT, Dave and Joe talked.

It was a beautiful couple of days, and seriously not just because of the really was great to have my FIL up to visit.  We celebrated with the first bottle of Devil's Drink we've purchased as a couple.

Hendrick' favorite

And it was delicious.  And the rest will probably sit on the shelf for a good six months.  Or until we have more visitors.

VISITORS???? Come on, you know you've always dreamed of traveling! And exotic Cleveland may be cold, but the house is warm!  We even almost have a guest room!
