Exclamation can't believe what my neighbor gave me!

For several years I have been wanting a Singer Featherweight ,but it was just not in my budget, living on just Social Security.Yesterday, my 81 year old neighbor called me and asked me to step out to the side yard fence. She handed me a Singer Featherweight 221 over the fence !(in perfect condition) she said she's getting too old to try to get the bobbin to work and if I didn't want it ,she's giving it to a thrift store. I had a hard rime containing my excitement!God has blessed me with wonderful helpful people in my life.Now I'm going to make this little old lady some really special for her birthday coming up next month!
