He needed today to study – he’s got finals coming up. So our IKEA run is postponed until NEXT week – which is fine for me…I can step around the boxes and tubs of books still in the “other” side of the basement waiting for me to get sturdy shelving in the studio so they can find a new home in here.
A whole day --- wide. stinking. open!
I want to play with Bobby some more!
We had a hoot last night on Quilt Cam remembering our young puppy-loves over Bobby Sherman and how he sang Julie, Julie, Julie – Do ya LOVE ME?!?
And I got to know my new friend!
Dating Brothers is NOT as easy as dating Singers. ((Wait a minute, that sounds all kinds of WRONG! LOL!))
I’ve got a serial number here:
But there is no website to check it out on. I searched – found a comment somewhere that I need to phone a particular number and ask, or send an email with what info I have for more data – it’s just not a user-friendly process. So suffice it to say that Bobby was born sometime in the 1950s – in Japan. That much I can tell from his badge here:
The plate below the stitch length dial and reverse lever says:
Of course my family thinks all of these machines make me PSYCHO-MATIC!
Do you remember in the 1950s and 1960s that EVERYTHING ended in –O-Matic?! Slice-o-matic, Dice-o-matic, Chop-o-matic it was a very O-MATIC era!
See this lever? That’s the feed-dog-drop-o-matic!
And there is a lovely stylized B_N logo on the machine bed---anyone know what the N stands for? I assume the B stands for ----BOBBY! :cD
It took me until last night to realize that the bed decals spell out BROTHER. There is not a scratch on this finish!
And gosh…I love the “wings” look on his badge plate!
I think Bobby and I are going to be great friends!
This is where I’ll be spending my afternoon!
