As I presently don't own a waterbed, I was going to join the "i miss my waterbed from the 70's, but I slept on a waterbed until 4 years ago. We had to either get rid of the bed or re-enforce the floor (we own a house built in 1937). I was so sad to see it go , and haven't really slept well since. Not one of those silly things with the tubes, either. The good old fashioned free flowing kind. It feels like sleeping on a cloud. mmmmmmmm,..........P.
