    Hope to give you a smile today

    I have been trying to name this lovely redo that I bought a few weeks ago------I have decided on "Bing Crosby" because it is the color of bing cherries and (wait for it----) it is a Singer!

    Bing is a great singer. I really like the redo, does it have all new wiring? I always worry about the original wiring on old machines getting frayed and brittle.
