    Miriam, I'll keep Wilbur in my prayers!! Hope you have an answer soon!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Hi Charlee, good to see you here on the board, I hope you are feeling better!! I remember seeing the patchwork design, but I don't remember seeing the Singer lettering. I like it very nice!

    I was told by an OSMG that the alligatoring is from it being outside and freezing. Outside can mean in an unheated shed. Freezing means downright freaking cold, not just the somewhat below freezing that we often think about though.

    Miriam, 1) Has your daughter given Wilbur any acidolphilus to replenish the good bacteria in his gut that the antibiotics are killing off along with the baddies? That will help with the gas and diarrhea. 2) After you 'Copy' something, go to where you want it in added to your reply and right click. 'Paste' should be one of the options in the dropdown box. My GD put Chrome on my computer this summer and I asked her that one before she left.

    Anamarie, that's not like my blonde cabinet. Mine is the fake Limed Oak from the 50s - 70s. Very blonde with a fake woodgrain. It's a factory appliqued finish.

    A -good- yogurt should do the trick for this as well. Many of them will list acidolphilus and bifidus on the label, and with the flavors, it's like a treat. Easy to administer.

    Good luck, hope he starts feeling and getting better soon!

    There's a really good chance that Restor-A-Finish in the right color and some Feed'N'Wax would take care of that. It looks better than my 27's treadle did when I brought it home, and that's all I've done to the treadle so far (besides the restoration, but we're talking finish here) It's not completely "gone" as far as marks, but you don't see them unless you look for them. Bringing up the luster with the Feed'n'wax hides a ton too.
