Cuz behind every succesful wood burner is a good woman FBF and we know how to pic em . Closeups FB or it didnt happen
Scotty's fault, he started it clear back at post #39. Nice pic of you & Mrs Flatbedford...I remember seeing pics and hearing some of the story of your arrival (?) Or was it your departure (?) by boat on the occasion of your wedding...very cool. Rick
I'll have to get clearance for a closeup.
Fossil, That was arrival by retired NYPD Launch 5. We were involved in the Coast Guard Auxiliary at the time.
Oh yeah, I remember now...what a way to make your entrance! Rick
How many pics do ya want of me in a Leisure suit with her?
Lol, Webbie. At least ONE, make it a good one!
Your loss. She is pretty.
I know, I've seen her. Post all the pics of her you want...it's just you in a leisure suit I can do without.
I don't think I can handle it being public! Someone is gonna take it and use it to deface me all over the interweb!
AWWWE, QUIT BEING A WUSS AND PUT IT UP ALREADY! Cousin Eddie!
I got some of those leisure suits ,dont know why im keepin em,nostalgia i guess, think ill put in the wood stove at some point.
Hey, you don't want to burn a leisure suit. That's like burning 4 tires!
Probably block the chimney and ruin my reburn chamber.
One word, my young friend...eBay. Trust me, I know from personal experience that there are people out there who will go into a frenzy bidding against one another for your "junk". It's fun, profitable, and empties the closets of all that old stuff you'll never use again. There is a buyer for everything.
They are in perfect condition,im not sure i even wore em once!
Dang, can't find leisure suit larry! It's pretty bad anyway - trust me. Although, as a hippie, I always preferred anything to the BiznessMan Suit.
I am amazed at how few pics I have of the wifey and I......plenty of me, plenty of her, plenty of the kids, folks, etc.....but I guess someone was always taking the damn pic! This was probably taken by the photog at one of those Pocono Resorts we may have escaped to for a weekend.
I was a young and an incredibly handsome man before I got here. Now, I'm older, arms are scarred from drunken stove loading, my back and knees are twisted pretzels of knots, blown tendons, and bridal spinal disks from moving over 2,000lbs of stoves across 1,500 miles, my clothing is covered in soot and charred burn holes from obsessively adjusting splits in a box of fire, I walk with a hunch from carrying untold amounts of firewood, and I have developed obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to keeping the house ridiculously warm. Just one more split before I go to bed. Just one more.
But, with the right amount of liquor, I can still convince anyone that I'm incredibly handsome. It just takes more liquor than it used to...
I'll play, here are my 3 favorite people.
Nice lookin' family, J
My wife and I are very tall with freakishly long arms!
How very true . . . whether it's the patience with the significant other in not saying anything while we spend untold hours scrounging or cutting, splitting, stacking wood, etc. . . . whether it's the significant other helping to run the woodstove while we're away (or sound asleep) . . . or whether it's the significant other helping to cut, split or stack the wood . . . running the woodstove is much easier and more successful in my mind when you have two people working together.
Funny because when I installed the stove a while back, dear wifey threw a fit! She grew up in a home that heated exclusively with wood (an old smokedragon) and she was convinced that our house would stink like smoke, just as her house did growing up. She literally CRIED when I installed the EPA stove, she absolutely did not want it. Fast forward to the present, shed probably SHOOT me if I took it out! She absolutely LOVES the heat and the cozy factor, and virtually NO smoke smell EVER!! And to ice the cake, she's a great firetender.......she's got more scars on her arms from the loading the stove than I do!!
