Tonight I received the following email from my old childhood friend in Virginia, the one whose mother had the Electrolux Model E that I was so fixated on.


I am going to my mom's house on Sunday. She said she will have the Electrolux boxed up for you.  I will bring it home and if you let me know where to send it to I will ship it next week.  Oh, she said her boy friend's sister (that sounds so weird) has a really old vacuum cleaner.  It doesn't run on electricity but requires the user to pump it to suck up the dirt.  Have you ever heard of this type?  My mom isn't sure if she would be willing to sell it or not, but would be willing to look into it if you're interested.



This is the fulfillment of my most, absolutely most, completely and totally most, fervent "Vacuum Cleaner Wish." I am still pinching myself.I have wondered and thought about that Electrolux for FIFTY YEARS, and I can hardly believe this most amazing turn of events.


¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ WOW !!!!!!!!


(I hope to have some other great news in a few days. Stay tuned.......)

P.S.: We've exchanged some very interesting and fun "childhood reminisces" emails. I'm going to post them in the Off-Topic Department.

Great news indeed!! I haven't really had any childhood blasts from the past here, but I get such a charge out of hearing about people who do! Couldn't happen to a more deserving person, besides me!Tongue out

I received an email from my friend stating, "The Electrolux is on its way.  They said it should get there by Friday. "


Will I be able to sleep until then?!

Fantastic!  That's really an incredible story ... it sure was meant to be, that this cleaner ended up with you.  :-)

Can't wait to see pictures of it!


Did they have a polisher to accompany the cleaner when you were a kid?
