I'm the operator

On our vacation we stayed at my family's farm in Townsend, Tenn. It's been in the clan for something like 200 years -- historians at Middle Tennessee State University commemorate it as the H.V. Burns farm (H.V. was my grandpap). The old house still exists, but we stayed in the house my grandparents built in the 1960s for their retirement.

My grandparents died a few years back, but much of their stuff is still there. Dad invited us to take mementos, so we chose a few things, including one I am very excited about: A vintage Sears calculator, complete with glowing red LEDs. Watch me add and subtract!
