It's Here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is here!!! In my house!!! My very own beautiful wonderful amazing gorgeous fast!! Juki!!! The Adashi met me at the front gate so I could sign him in..he came on a motorcycle with it strapped on the back. He spoke only two words in and okay. Works for me! It took three men to get that thing upstairs!! The Adashi put it all together and then we proceeded to have a little tutorial. Much hand waving and okaying between us. I think he was amused at me. I kept patting him on the arm and then grinning at him, plus all the hopping around I was doing and singing at the top of my lungs that I was soooooooooooooooooooo happy, makes for a whopping good time if you ask me!
One thing that tickled me to no end was the group of people who came to watch the "goings on" by the gate when I was trying to sign the Adashi in. Seems that only certain delivery men can come on base and there was much discussion going on between the Adashi and the three gate guards. Loud discussion. With hands waving. No one was angry, these are just a passionate people and at times a talk can get lively. I loved the whole thing!!! I felt like a puppy jumping around and telling everyone that my machine came. The crowd had no idea what I was saying but they were sure happy for me! heehee Every once in awhile I noticed that the crowd was paying more attention to the "loud conversation" then to my new Juke. This led to more jumping around and much pointing by me for them to "look back over here!!! Look what I got!!!"
After my instruction session with the Adashi I had to take him back to the gate. As he was leaving the van I grabbed him by the arm and told him that this was the happiest day of my life. He grinnned at me and said, "okay!" I am sure he had a wonderful story to tell when he got home about the crazy American running around in circles in her living room and giggling.
I am now off to sew!!!!
bye everyone!
