The clutch is shot, there is an electrical short from the hood flying up
yesterday that now makes her undriveable at night. This very well could be
the last week of Lucy…..If I take her to Al’s to rest, I am sure you would want
to come along…. Mike

I actually started tearing up when I read this. Please wait for me to get back from Hong Kong before you decide to do anything. This sucks!!! We had some good times with that truck!


Honestly? Would we have this same type of conversation over a Sewing Machine???? Again, I'm laughing picturing these two driving off into the sunset in Lucy, "Thelma and Louise style." (cue's Sanford and Son theme song)

OMG! I'm am laughing so hard right now. Give them their time together. We'd do the same when our machines die.

I can't stop laughing and now I will have the Sanford and Son theme song stuck in my head! I don't want to imagine when something happens to Elizabeth or Sophia! Our sewing machines are our babies!!!
