Well, since I couldnt be with you all this weekend, lady luck smiled down on me, LOL. First we went to a nearby old hardware store, Fred needed bags for the Hamilton Beach he recently found...well, it seems all inventory that is dated before 1987 is being moved to the basement...all things said and done, I darn near bought all the bags they had!!!

I seem to find more at this goodwill, " Winston Salem" than all others, it is a outlet store, nothing is priced, you buy it by the pound, excert for appliances, ALL vacuums are 5.00 a piece!!

Oh, my Lord! You've found Lewyt bags to boot! I'd try to bribe you with goodies, but you and I seem to cook the same things. Dern it.

Steal is right.
If the Sunbeam Radiant toaster doesn't work quite right and you're not sure how to get it lowering/upping automatically there's a website that will explain how to adjust itproperly.
