It is National Sewing Machine Day. For those of you who still use one (and I know you're out there), you can find some handy instructions on maintaining your machine at the link.
WHY PROOFREADING IS SO IMPORTANT
Monday: "For sale - R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 948-0707 after 7:00 p.m. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap."
Tuesday: "Notice - We regret having erred in the ad for R.D. Jones yesterday. It should have read: 'One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 948-0707 and ask for Mrs. Kelly, who lives with him after 7:00 p.m.' "
Wednesday: "Notice - R.D. Jones has informed us of the many annoying phone calls he has received because of the error we made in his ad yesterday. The ad is now corrected as follows: 'For sale - R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 948-0707 after 7:00 p.m. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves with him.' "
Thursday: "Announcement - I, R.D. Jones no longer have a sewing machine for sale. I smashed it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have NOT been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday, she was my housekeeper. She has now quit. So do I!"
