I just got back from New Orleans. It's not time to start planning the January meet before the Christmas stuff comes down.
It will be loads of fun, I'm sure.

Hi gottahaveahoover, how was your Christmas and New Year’s? I hope you had a great time at New Orléans! Have you checked out my post about my Christmas present my sister got me? You’re gonna be amazed on what I got!

Yes, I did. Great machines.
Since my parents are both deceased, my aunt and I always go to Virginia to my sister's for Christmas. Her daughter, my niece, is on medical school in New Orleans. She just had her first baby 7 weeks ago. Instead of her, her hubby, and little Benjamin schlepping to VA, we ALL went to her, staying in an air B&B. It was wonderful, hot (70 degrees), etc. We were only 30 minutes from the French Quarter... We went to the World War II National Museum. PHENOMENAL!!! It was a better history lesson than 4 years of High School. Were were there 9 days.....things were backing up back at home, (holiday entertaining, etc) But...........was great to see my family and the newest addition.
Yes, the mini meet will be at the end of January. I'm sure lots of vintage and newer machines will be here. What to cook??? details, details.....

Soooo excited!

Meet #2 for me already! Thanks for the invite yet again.

If anyone is planning to go and has an extra outer bag, as well as spare belts, for this gorgeous beast, it'd be greatly appreciated. Or, as the young folks like me say, "HMU."

Hopefully, someone in the group can help you.

Only the big tree (10 feet) is up this year. W/ the trip, etc... just not enough time.
But, we'll all have a great time, a nice dinner, etc.
So looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Hopefully, it won't snow.
