On Friday, a friend stopped by to see the house. AS he was leaving, he said,"Oh, there's a big box at your door". I knew I didn't buy anything. THe return address said, Rick Asquith. I opened it and discovered a HOOVER Commercial upright cleaner. It MAY have been used ONCE. It's a model C1631. I put it together today and tried it out. W O W !!!!!!! It's practically a self-propelled! I'll post pics very soon. It is an AMERICAN made, real HOOVER cleaner. The cord reaches to New Jersey, practically. My mouth was agape when I opened the box.
Rick, what a THOUGHTFUL gift!!It'll get a grand workout cleaning up this horrible mess left behind by everything that happened here. A great cleaner, BUT, the friendship is far more valuable. EVERYONE should run a cleaner like this. It's probably the finest of the end of the N. Canton HOOVERS.

sorry for the terrible disarray.

But, oddly, it's getting better.

I have that self-same model at home, which I use as a daily driver. I've had it for 10 years now, and I am absolutely thrilled with it! I wish you many happy years with that cleaner!
