Default Not Ford, But Definitely Timely

Recognizing that many 'Barner's have age-related maladies, I want to share a discovery: "Warm and Cozy Heated Mattress Pad." This is basically a heated blanket that is placed on the mattress and under the bottom sheet. You cannot feel the wires, as you can with a heated blanket. Margretha and I have found that this unit (duel controls) keeps the body muscles warm and flexible throughout the night. Easily found on the search engine of your choice; I have no vested interest in this product, but hope this will be of benefit to our 'Barn family.

Yuppers, Marcus and Margretha are very reliable sources. A heated matress pad is the bomb. Much better than an electric blanket, much! I mean, heat goes up right?

Hi Jeff - We had hopes of making it back to Gettysburg, but life and Covid sure interfered! Sold the '47, and the deal for the '36 failed to materialize, so in between flatheads right now and concentrating on the Mustang collection ..... But who knows? Y'all have a show and we will come back just to kibitz!

My wife bought the heated mattress pad. Our bedroom has no heat, but this thing is the perfect solution. Pretty much on par with sliced bread.

I'd think that with sliced bread, you'd get a pretty crummy nights sleep.

Ditto here. We crank it up to HIGH about ten minutes before climbing into bed, then turn it to low when we get in. Love it.
