Was ist los?
« on: April 22, 2014, 06:46:23 PM »


 Or....from German into English:
       What is happening?


I see, quite often, spouses"rolling their eyes"....."threatening bodily harm" (I get that one a lot), "making fun of"......or generally misunderstanding our Weberitis............

Well, today, I think I've turned a corner of some sort...........

The wife & I are out & about getting my cell phone fixed, helping Ma get thru my nephew being in the hospital (nothing major) and some general shopping......she wants to go to "Tinsel Town", her name for a second hand store here in town actually called Thrift Town.........
Great place.....one by us I got a OTS for $15.....I think that's the one that got painted "Orange" & one out by Ma's is where she wanted to go.....

We find some cast iron & a few other ditties, old cookbooks & while I'm checking out the corduroy pants she says: "Hey !!! Do you want this?
     or should we just leave it here.....?"

"I did say: No More Webers!!!!!"


I turn to look & it's an 18"...black, looks decent $24.99, not negotiable.......

Upon closer inspection ( we always do 'closer inspections' right?).......there's this:

"E" code, real nice shape & some goofy thing tied to the leg.....







OK..........not bad......



Unfortunately, no wood !!!


The high side of this story is the wife insisted she was BUYING IT FOR ME !!!!



"If you want it fancy there is BBQ spray paint at home depot for that. "
    Covered, damper-controlled cooking.....IF YOU PLEASE !!!

E code?

Never mind, I thought E was the one that we could not find in the wild.  I was mistaken, Eh.

 She just leaned in & asked if there was "any response to your story?"

You have a good wife!

Hey this gives me an idea. Is she into anything like you are with Weber? You could turn it into a game where you take turns gifting each other. Before you know it she'll be bringing home as many kettles as you do, and taking pride in your collection!  Reward her... A supportive wife is awesome.

Very true! On 2 of my redhead rescues ... my wife tagged along because she wanted to.
Now it's memories that will last forever.  :) :)  I hope that didn't sound too sappy ..  :o ??? ;D ;)

Nice!  Nice looking handles, as well.  Wood handles make black kettles quite elegant.
