The heat is on..... in MANY ways!!
Not only has the weather been unbearable hot but harvest is also in full swing!
Heat and Harvest do go well together!
I was about to work on my combine in the field when I SCREAMED upon this HUGE spider!
I must admit...yup....I killed him!
My research this morning says he WAS a tunnel spider.
I wasn't about to take a chance on getting bitten!
I had another little...and much better surprise in the shop
This sewing machine cabinet was dropped off in my shop.
and inside was....
this little Singer Machine!!
The serial number dates it to 1954.
This little box was also with it.
It holds all the pieces for the machine.
It opens up completely flat....
They just don't make things like this any more!!
And in box number 2 was this.....
Again... where is the style and character of things we make these days?
None the less, thank you for the gifts.... I will treasure them!
(I think I am becoming a collector...or is that 'hoarder'?)
