    green with jealousy .... I just spent the day at an all-town garage sale and didn't see so much as a sewing needle.

    Good job Son!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Wow! What an amazing deal. I almost feel sorry for the person who sold it without knowing what they had. Kudos to your son for knowing what he was buying and getting it for you.
