    sounds to "me" like they got rid of everything else, and the girl's gone too..........don't see anything there about a wood stove.

    Sounds like his man cave is like mine - an open spot in the cellar, surrounded by all the accumulated junk that has no other place in the house.

    Sorry. Wrong coast. I do not know that of which you speak.

    Now I've got the picture: cellar--straightbacked wooden chair---bare lightbulb dangling above from a wire--and a guy sitting there holding a beer with an `am I having fun yet?' look on his face. But he can go to work and throw the phrase `man cave' around with the best of them.

    That's.just.sad.
