    Good news

    This past week, my Harmy (P61) brought his two brothers here, Harmy2 (P61-2) from CT and HarmyA (P61a) from Exeter NH! ! !
    Now I have the 3 Amigos and I am also working on upgrading them all to P61a-2 ! ! ! Lots of fun!
    With up to 183k of BTUs between them our house will sizzle!

    I don't name my cars, stoves or refrigerators. But if I did pick a name for the stove it would be Lea. That way I could walk by it and greet it with a 'Hiya Lea' and be off to the races.

    I will occasionally refer to my stove as the Oz. But honestly mostly in my own head. I feel like a real weirdo saying that out loud.

    My wife sometimes refers to it as "my mistress."

    But I need to think of a really good name for my stove.

    My friend in another state has an Esse and as we got emailing back and forth about using our stoves, he came up with that.. So our stoves got the name Miss Esse.. It is a really robust stove for sure...

    I call mine The Performer as the name it was given.

    The name is cast across the top of the door.

    Dont touch your computer screen you might get burnt.

    Because there was no training necessary, I felt no need to name the stove. Yelling commands such as "here stove" would be silly and might get me locked up.

    But if it could fetch wood - that would be really cool. Then I would give it a really cool name.

    No . . . unless you count the name of the model that the manufacturer gave it.
