Last week was fun, then Cabin Fever set in and most of us were going crazy from the snow. Poor Missouri Michael is still snowed in! Saturday most of the ice on the roads had melted and Patricia and I decided we needed to get out and do a little thrifting, and by a little I mean a lot!
So with our first bargain of the day we headed off to Wichita Falls. We went here and there and didn't find much, have a few snowball fights along the way, it was just nice to be out of the house! We grabbed a few oranges at Wal-mart to test the juicer with, and then swung by Patricia's house because a special package had finally come in for me! Ever since I was taken to a production of Oklahoma back in the 90's Ive made a habit of getting the Musical on a record (if the show is old enough to have a record) well when I started seeing shows on Indiana Street I made it a point to get the cast to sign the record album. The last one I had singed was when Wichita Theater did West Side Story three years ago, It caused quite a stir when I brought my record player up to the theater and played my albums while we work on the sets of Cinderella. I had more than one person look the autographed album over and exclaim "That was You! I remember that!!!" Well since Cinderella is the Opening show to the theaters 103rd season I tracked down the record album from the 1955 Telecast Starring Julie Andrews for the occasion.
Well Patricia and I finished our shopping around 6:00P.M. and there was a 7:30P.M. performance of Cinderella so we decided to run back into Wichita and see it. As we were driving we posed the question " exactly how many times have we seen this show?..." and after counting it up (including tech week) last nights viewing makes a record breaking 15 times to see the show! But each time we see it its even better than the last and the music is just so darn catchy! After the show I go the cast to sign my album...
All in all a Lovely Night. Inside this record album-time capsule you will find the following...

Sunday Morning after cleaning up the juicer I thought I'd give it a try, and see what my $5 had gotten me.
I found one that is the same make and model number N-848 on Ebay, and the seller says its from 1948.
Every time I post about a new appliance I wait for the lone sniper "vintageapplainceguy" to pop up and snipe my research in a comment (as he did with my Norge Fridge) and never comment again. But I LOVE this juicer! Im looking into having the parts re-chromed, and I think I will be repainting it as well. I've played around with the idea of painting it red (red looks great on the green and white checker board counters), or maybe I should keep if white? I can tell you if the chroming costs over $100 We'll just repaint the base and call it "well loved" ha ha!
What do you all think?
