    Miriam,

    Contact Keith. I'll be he gets a laugh out of it weather or not he's "that" Keith. I agree with Nancy.

    A couple years ago rumors were circulating in my wife's family that one of her brothers was dead. Nobody had heard from him in a very long time. Yet nobody wanted to call him. Even my wife was tongue tied. So I called the BIL and said: "Is this XXXXX? He said tentatively .... yes. Then I told him who I was and asked , did you know you're family thinks your dead? He sputtered and then started laughing. He was just living his live and not giving the family any extra thoughts.

    Contact him. I'll bet he gets a chuckle out it.

    Joe

    Is it not possible that Keith Fowler himself took Home Ec and engraved his own name on the machine? Boys took Home Ec when I was in high school -- I was in a class with the first boys (most were our friends) to ever to enroll in a Home Ec course. They did it mostly as a joke...and to be around girls....but the teachers LOVED it and encouraged them. They had great fun and so did we. We were all ahead of our time, I think.

    That is so funny. I would think he would get a hoot out of it, even if he was the culprit! LOL

    Absolutely contact him. I think that most people would find this humorous. Cam you imagine how awesome it would be if his wife had a crush on him in high school, carved his name on the sewing machine and then later got married! Can you tell that I'm a romantic?

    Miriam, get the school year books. We want to know what this geezer looked like. Was he worth risking getting caught during needlework class?

    Now THAT'S a good point - but he would be old and perhaps ugly by now.

    Yeah but what if he divorced and remarried and the new wife is the jealous sort...

    Oh my gosh. This brings back memories........No, I'm not the carver of the now famous Keith Fowler......I carved my brothers name on my folks toilet seat (I was mad at him for being mean). I just learned how to print his name. The seat was that horrid green color that was all the rage and I was inventive.....I used one of my mothers bobby pins to do the crime.

    I wonder what 'tool' was used to do the crime?
