ON THE BACK BURNER

August5

My son has a doublely long lot. That is because he bought the lot behind his back yard. No one else could have used it because it is land locked. The previous owner chopped off some of his back yard to sell to my son. I think the zoning is very casual around here. The beauty of this back lot is that there are woods behind it that no one can build on .The other thing that is fun for me and practical,for him , is that there were several out buildings on the back lot. One was filled with stuff. My son made a work shop out of it with more tools than a man needs. And, an old 4 burner apartment size stove.  A bit rusty where it doesn't show, but not in terrible shape. It is a Dixie stove. I looked it up and it was made in a foundry in Cincinnati which was bought and combined with Magic chef and Westinghouse. I have been working on the stove all day. Rust remover,rubber gloves,soap pads and a knife for attacking  stubborn spots . I am not happy with my trailer stove, so if we can determine that this Dixie is safe to use, I am going to install it. I watched YouTube for instructions on how to restore vintage stoves.. so how hard can it be.
