    What I wanted with my morning coffee was a piece of strawberry-rhubarb pie. I'll have to make some of that at a later time.
    Ha Ha, I gotta tell one on my DD. My DH has been a contractor. My DD knows what everything is. She can handle any power tool or tool that comes her way. She can mud dry wall like a pro. OK. When she was 9 or 10 she went to a friend's house. They made pie. She ate pie. When she came home DH asked her what they did. She proudly said she learned to make REBAR strawberry pie.

    Now that you mention it, I think mine may be called Dynamic too, not Margaret. Margaret is a different 3/4 class 15 machine and I don't have one. Guess that shows that I haven't come across it for a while!

    I really like that 3/4 size class 15 machine. It's very nice. I'm thinking that is one I want to keep around. I've been doing a bunch of small stuff anyway. I was using a Spartan but it doesn't drop the feed dogs that I know of.

    I would just like a handcrank that's small and reasonably light-weight. Somewhere I have an aluminum 99; think I'll see how that works as a handcrank.

    Thank you for the pix of the Dynamic. I knew there was at least one more of that model out there but wasn't sure if I even knew the name.

    Pat,

    You've seen my aluminum 99 that is a hand-crank. Haven't you sewn on it yet? I think is sews perfectly.

    DD was correct!! The chocolate cheesecake is super rich but very yummy. Both cheesecakes turned out well but even a small piece is too much of a good thing. REBAr strawberry pie - don't believe I've had one of those but most people won't even touch a strawberry/rhubarb pie becaue it's not something momma made.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    $25 for a FW is a deal!

    Dinah is gorgeous!

    And please pass me the Rebar strawberry pie; I'll have some with my tea while reading the rest of today's posts.
