Brother PR 600 it keeps on ticking :)
I have been so busy the last four days I have not even had time to blog! I received a phone call from one of my very good customers, he had forgotten to call and order some patches from me (last month). The meeting is only six days away and he was hopping I could still get them done.....so everything the last four days (except the family and animals) was put on the back burner and drum roll please.......I got them finished today and with an overnight Monday he should have them by Tuesday the day before the meeting! :) I usually would not try to get this big of an order out so quick (stress) but I have done lot of work for these customers since I picked them up in 2004 (they have 5 states) and this is the first time it has happened. While I was working on the order it dawned on me, I have had this machine since 2003 and have put a lot of stitches on it. The only repairs that have been done were minor and also its yearly service, so I decided to take a look at my stitch count. I have put 1,332,445,4 stitches on this machine since 2003 and 4,692 hours run time! I had no idea I had done that many stitches, I guess that is why when I take it in for its yearly service the last few times the service department makes a comment about my old machine! :) They are very expensive so I hope it keeps on ticking for another (at least) 5 years. Anyway we had a major problem with Shirley (one of the little goats) tonight I promise to blog about it tomorrow (if she is okay) gotta go I need take care of her again.
