    1. Buy a pair of size 14-16 work boots.

    3. Put some giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.

    4. Leave a note on the door: "Bubba: Me & Bertha went for more ammo and beer. Back soon. Don't mess with the pit bulls; they messed the mailman up bad this morning. I don't think Killer took part; hard to tell from all the blood. I locked all four of ‘em in the house. Better wait outside. Be right back. Cooter"
    Miriam, this might help the attempted break ins, but I doubt it helps the mooning! You are so funny, what a sense of humor! I think the dog idea is the best! We rescued the sweetest dog - he looks like a pit bull, but our local animal shelter swears he is lab/queensland. The queensland part I believe because he wants to herd the horses, but the lab part - no, he is pit bull! We got him to protect our place and our animals and just looking at him would scare most people, but he is so sweet! We went to the animal shelter 4 times checking him out before we brought him home! Once by ourselves, once with a grandchild, once to see how he'd react with puppies, and once to see how he'd react with cats! He just wants to love everything! You really ought to get a rescue dog there are so many out there that need homes! A big plus, he came as a 2 year old already potty trained! We just love him - we didn't have to go through the puppy stuff and he is so loving probably because he loves it here!

Problem with that would be that I'm surprising him with his daughters for his birthday in May, and will be flying them in from Florida, so we'll be taking vacation then, and won't get another one for awhile!
    Charlee are you in Redmond? My aunt lives there.

    Billy does this mean you are well enough to work on the vintage machines again? Paint them? Run your parts business?

    Hollyann, did you post a picture? Charles Raymond was instrumental in the sewing machine manufacturing business, and the invention of the sewing machine. The Raymond Manufacturing Co was sold to White Manufacturing Co in 1916. The machines named Raymond were manufactured between 1895 and 1916, after 1916 they were made by White. Do your treadle legs say Raymond on the irons? Here is some information on Raymond .http://www.sewalot.com/charles_raymond.htm

    Nancy

    Here are some photos from the White site. http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...62526590iVaRRP

    Another interesting site with a Raymond pictured http://blog.tawnybee.com/2011/07/cha...g-machine.html

    Thank you so much, Nancy, yes the treadle legs say Raymond on it, the machine is in pretty rough shape. I might be fooling myself but i thought it would be a good project to try and get her cleaned up and running.... Her underside is very clean and all the parts are moving, just lots of rust on her back plate. I just took some pics I will post. I'm new to this so I could be kidding myself.. hope not. Thank you for the info.
