"I am calling so that you can talk me out of going to an auction in Cobleskill."
"You are calling ME to talk YOU OUT of going to an AUCTION?"
"Yes, there is a sewing machine there. I want you to tell me it isn't worth going there for. Go to Auctionzip.com and look."
So I did, of course. The machine was in a case and it was not any machine that I recognized nor wanted. It wasn't too hard to talk her out of going. We have too much to do.
"OK good. I have too much to do. I will be over at about one."
The board meeting for Sewing Machine Magic was to meet at two today and we had to prepare. Our board is pretty strict
Betsy arrived promptly, on time, at one thirtythree. She did say "about one." We got right down to business. First we had to review the video I took of Steve and Kurt moving the Heartstone Stove from the truck to the shop:
Then we had to review the video of Vic loading it into the Truck yesterday.
OK, I have a tractor with a bucket loader. It is very tricky to ease that bucket down smoothly and carefully. Kudos to Vic for being such an expert.
Finally we got down to some business. As in recording the $9.60 in sales tax that we collected so far this quarter. And then we had to figure out how to create an account with the SONY so that we can PAY our quarterly tax bill when it is due in December. If that wasn't enough frustration, then we took more photos of the pristine, vintage 329K we want to list on eBay and uploaded them.
Finally we had a chance to sew and headed out to the toasty sewing loft to make some diapers. Betsy is to be a Grandmother in a few months. She is getting ready.
We each made one. Admittedly hers (the yellow one) came out better. She has two healthy thumbs.
Now two of them are sound asleep next to me.
