SO my Mom purchased a new power tool. Yup, this is a Bernina B-770. And I gotta say it's a pretty marvelous machine. That little screen actually plays animations-as opposed to just a drawing- to guide you through anything you need to know. And it is HUGE. Mom had to rearrange a few things just to make it fit. After she gets a little practice, I'm going to see if I can take it for a spin. You know how much I love power tools!
So for lunch we went into Marshalltown, Mom & Dad drove us by the latest artwork that the city of Marshalltown has installed. It's on 13th street. I guess it's an OK peice of art but, 13th street is kind of a vintage, traditional, old fashioned neighborhood, so I'm not sure it's a very good fit right there next to the tennis courts, across the parking lot from the Salvation Army store.
