Bert has taken quite a liking to my dog Jumbo and calls him the little "elephant." I'm sure Jumbo would move in if I let him, everytime we're up there he jumps up in Bert's lap and settles in for a round of petting :)
It seems to be complete and with a good restoration I think it would look pretty nice. I wonder how many meals were cooked on it? The one Bert now has in his kitchen is similar and I hope to grab some pics of it soon.
In between writing and posting I ran up to Bert's to do the cat but the cat got away... again, but not before taking a rather hefty bite out of Pop's hand, right through his welding gloves! Blood and everything, ouch! While I was there I asked Bert if I could take a picture of his cookstove and he said "Oh sure... as long as I'm not included in the picture" in his comical way :) Bert told me the old stove in the chicken coop is "pretty much burned out" and that's why he has the newer stove in his kitchen. Excuse me while I go kiss my Maytag in my own kitchen :)
Here's his stove:
Jaycee has been doing some canning and it looks really good! She's had to call me a few times but I don't mind, I love to can and give info freely :)
Well I've tried to post this most of the day but have had constant interruptions. I could add what else I've done today but the post would get way too long... so sometime this week stay tuned for more pipe changing, picking apricots, and a recipe or two! Lord, I think I'm going to start buying disposable clothes because I can't near my laundry room, there is just not enough hours in the day! Thank goodness, after picking apricots, Grandma ask if the kids and I would like to stay for supper because I just got in the door at about 9:00 PM (I started this post at 7:30 this morning!!) So I've thrown in the towel (a dirty one too) and decided to just post this and continue tomorrow. Shoot I've got to go lock up my chickens!!
