What? I asked nervously.
My mind was going wild!
Did he buy that new truck he has mentioned a few times? Because we were about to have a knock down drag out! Did he buy his son the motorcycle he has hinted about to his dad about 2 or 3 hundred times? That would be a knock down drag out for him with his ex I'm sure!
So after a few minutes of gathering my thoughts. I tried to sound calm and cool.
Oh really what? Sweet as could be.
Well he begins since I can;t keep it from you I bought that old stove that you wanted.
Let's take a step back because I first saw this stove in his friends garage a few months ago. I drooled, oohed, and awed over it. His friend said you can have it for $75.00. I just want to get it out of my garage. Well I looked at hubby with my cutest you know I will love you forever look if we get this.
He just wasn't buying it. What will we do with it? It's gonna be really heavy to move! I would have to sandblast it and paint it. Those were all the excuses.
Even his friend tried to convince him I just couldn't live without it.
Come on didn't she mow your five acres for you every week during the summer heat. Have dinner waiting for you every night when you stepped in the door. You have bragged her up all this time doesn't she deserve it!
Okay, I was ready to hug his friend! I looked over at hubby and gave him a you know he's right look. He still said no !
I eventually got over it and had actually had kinda forgotten about it.
Then he goes and gets it to my surprise! It don't get better then that!
|So here it is!|
|Yes it is rough. It will need sand blasted and painted.|
|Just look at all the detail though! Love all the scrollishness and the legs! Now I just have to decide where it will go. Of course I will have to decide the color to. Please feel free to give suggestions. Traci|
