    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.
    WOOD STOVE NOT FOR SALE

    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.

    Oak pedastal table--no. Oak round for footstool--yes.

    Tony Little Gazelle--no. Chainsaw--yes.

    Air cleaner--no. Gaps in siding for ventilation and light--yes.

    Three smart phones--no. One phone with charger not plugged in--yes.

    Bread machine--no. Beer cooler--yes.

    Mirrored closet doors------mirrored closet doors?!?
