    Ladies & Gents-- I've decided I'm the luckiest person alive! I recently bought a mid-arm from a friend. They'd upgraded to a Longarm. WELL, they've NOW decided they want to go in their MH to YUMA for the next 2 yrs or so...AND they want me to be "foster parent" to their LONGARM!!! YAYYYYY It's a Pfaff Grandquilter 18......with the QBOT!!!!! Am I lucky or WHAT!!!!!! I'll get it next week. Meanwhile, i have to clean out the shop where the other quilting machine is located and do some wall "widening"..It'll be easy. I'm so stoked, I haven't slept since I found out!

    Well, the "eat your heart out" comment wasn't very nice ;-) but I hope you enjoy your baby sitting chores.

    Lucky you!! The last thing I "fostered" was a 14 year old golden retriever that drooled and was incontinent. (But he was cute!)

    Whoa there pardnder. That is great for you.

    Being from Arizona i really can't imagine anyone wanting to live there in the summer. One of my classmates was from Yuma and liked to wear her T-shirt that had on it:
    I don't need to go to Hell ...
    I 've been in Yuma!

    Too true. Don't be surprised if they decide to go back up North for the summers.

    That's why when they needed help down in Yuma I volunteered to go all throughout the nice winter months. I took my sewing machine and quilted ... [also met some movie actors, like the Rock.] I had fun. Everyone else stayed up in Phoenix but they had to rotate throught Yuma in the summer months. tee hee.
