    nice. i’ve seen teasers in other photos, and wondered, but didn’t dare ask, in case it was something sinister.

    “I said dine in. Never mind, got any serviettes?”

    *blank look*

    No serviettes either.

    Aaaaaarght Ted don’t do that. I spent hours finding the links between Colonel Sanders and the Metters stove, CDs lie everywhere, pieces of paper with attempted anagrams, I was about to resort to kabbalah and then I remembered an earlier previous post.

    Once KFC took the Fried out of their name it was over for me, it went from the realm of fun junk to mountain bike riding marketing fairy land.

    The colours of your old stove has aged well though. Reminds me of Aga stoves.

    Mr Metters says thanks for the compliment. You’re right though, I’d normally see that yellow as jaundiced or institutaional but it does have a nice glow about it.

    We used to have an Aga in a late lamented (sold) cottage in Oxfordshire.
    No, actually, it was a Rayburn.
    Hey, they seem to be the same thing.
    Anyway, it was jolly nice. It would heat for many hours on very little coal, and was also good for stovetop cooking. Unfortunately something funny about the oven meant that anything cooked in it tasted like coal, which is good for Proustian moments but does not taste appealing.

    A cottage further west and it could have been a Remembrance of things Pastie
