    I have to agree with Miriam about the 403! I've got one in absolute pristine condition that my son picked up from GW Store locally for $41. It looks like new and sews like a charm; couldn't ask for a better machine!

    When my daughter fell in love for the first time, she wrote his name everywhere and I mean everywhere. Nothing permanent as far as I know but she didn't take home ec and I sure didn't know all the things she did. BTW, they are married 23 years now so I guess first love at age 15 can last.

    Oh dear. Keith Fowler made the news in the latest drug bust. I sure hope it was a different Keith Fowler but I think I'm glad I didn't try to contact Keith Fowler................. sigh. mystery remains.

    Miriam, I bet you are glad you didn't try to contact Keith Fowler -- He might be one of the nicest people you've ever not met, but then again, you never know! Better safe than sorry!

    I have a 201 that was heavily graffitied. I don't see any last names so I guess the perpetrators will never be caught! *I wonder if a french polish would take these out?
    I would never polish that out of that machine. That is just WAY too cool. I would clean it up then I would shellac over it a bit to protect it and then I would enjoy all that graffiti - I guess I get a real kick out of the odd ball stuff.

    Years ago I got a box full of letters that 5 brothers had written to their mom and dad during wwll. The were from IL and I was in MN. (an auction) I put an open letter to craigslist in the town they were from and found the last living brother. Returned the letters to him.

    I googled and found a lot of mug shots for Keith Fowler... Nope I'm not going to go looking for the guy.

    You should see if he's the one and if he wants to buy back the evidence.

    Maybe he was just a nice guy in school and he had a secret admirer. Maybe he would be flattered.

    Maybe Keith took the home ec class to meet girls, and got bored. I think your version is better though.
