    Looks like she's in great shape, even the case. Bet you can't wait to get her home.

    This will be my 2nd FW. Couldn't resist when my sister called and said there was one at the Shipshewonna auction today. It bid so fast and then she didn't really think she got it. I told her to keep her eyes peeled for a white/celery colored one and also a 222.

    Still wanting one, but so far too costly here. but will be looking. My mother had a white one and I let her give it to someone else years ago. If Ihad know what I know now I would make the decision and kept it myself. Yes, I had that choice and could kick myself now. Only chance might be is if Gary (also my horsehoer for years) and Caroline do an estate sale and there is one in the house. That is a beauty and I am sure you will love it. Congradulations.

    Got my new baby today and it does notlook like it had ever been used. no marks or scratches, had a button holer in the box, 2 keys, box of attachments, bottle of oil, screwdriver. the box looks like new too. will try it out tomorrow. Think I will call her after my sister Cindy. AM696880 is the serial # on her.

    congrats on your new 221, have lots of fun with her.
    I am waiting for my new white one to arrive, any day now, she will join our little family of 221's, but she will be one of a kind.
