    add more milk or yogurt to get the amount you want

    Miriam we do smoothies all the time too, but I'd have to leave out the avocado and almond butter! I use yogert, banana's (frozen), frozen stawberries, frozen blueberries, and any other frozen fruit we have. Add some 100% juice and yummy - a great dinner on hot days!

    "Where's the beef??"!!! :lol: Guess that dates me!!!! :oops:
    Randa, are you saying you have to have meat and potatoes for dinner? Sounds like my Dad! We always had to have meat and potatoes or dinner was not complete! My DH and I do our "linner," lunch and dinner combined in the early afternoon, so technically dinner is something very light around here! Unless the grandkids are here, then I have to cook!

    I finished my grandson's birthday quilt last night and posted it this am in the Quilt Photo shop. He is 3 today so boy did I have to rush that quilt out! It is made (almost) entirely with treadles!

    I sure wish those types of things were still made today. I'd love to find a "puzzle box". I have my mom's sewing box but it's a cheap one and not vintage. At least I have some of her sewing things. She didn't sew much but had a nice set of shears etc.

    Mornin' all. DH and I are headed out to pick up a Singer 66 in a bentwood case. Looks pretty good on CL, but he says needs new wire. But that's ok, because I'm going to take the head out of the case, convert to a HC and ship to Afghanistan to a soldier.

Its a singer treadle 66 made July 28th in Elizabeth, NJ. :thumbup: :thumbup: I'm doing a happy dance and can't for the life of me remember from wence she came! So we have a restoration job ahead and I'll send photos this weekend, of the condition it is in now. :oops: Can't believe we can't remember we had it or where it came from. Could it be old age? :thumbdown:
    Debs & Hemi
    No, no, no... it is not old age... it IS busy minds with volumes of things to do and information gets sidetracked... or something like that!!!! :lol: :lol:
    Oh I think that is a great definition! Thanks, Debs

    I'm taking the motor off, and adding a HandCrank device. I will ship USPS via his APO addy.

    'Nuther Rocketeer in KS. This one is in a cabinet and also has the case, which looks pretty good, plus attachments, etc.

    Time to announce my new find and ask for help: we found a 15-91 in an antique store for $47, but it came with a cabinet, I'll post pictures. Now the problem. We are in NH and live in Ga and to get between the two we are camping out in our VW van with our cat Ray so have his litterbox on the floor.

    To get to our friend's house in NH we just flipped it upside down machine and all. But that is going to be awkward all the way home as we will have to remove it when we are camping to get to the fridge and almost anything....

    We looked at the cabinet and it looks very much like it could be disassembled (unscrewed) and then reassembled at home which would make getting it home an awful lot easier. We have a storage place over the cab where we could put it securely wrapped in several trash bags or even keep it in the van itself if we have to....

    What cha alll think? Billy, ya got any ideas to offer?

    extra accessory kit I bought for the bobbin case

    serial AL256731, born 1952?

    case we'd like to disable and reassemble
