Iím Speechless!! That Ambassador is practically flawless! Itís good to see a score for the 2018 highlight reel come so early in the game. Also I nominate this for a spot in the 2019 Calendar. Congratulations!!!! Love that color!

Because this kettle is so special, I have a couple of ideas for iconic locations for a photo shoot. Completing a restoration on it is now my #1 priority. Well until something rare pops up on CL (lol).

Awesome find! I hope you made it to the beach house with that baby!

The thought had crossed my mine but I probably would have been cleaning it while I was there.  My wife is very supportive and understanding with my kettle chasing but I did not want to press my luck.  Besides, the beach house came with a black OTS Weber kettle.  I just brought my own cooking grate and grill accessories.

"Without hesitation she said "Let's go"?" Keep her! LOL.  Wow what a find that grill looks great.
Wife said "No more GRILLS in this house!" So I bought a 2nd house!

I guess I can hijack my own thread.  It was a much needed break for us.  We have my Father-in-law from Oregon living with us during the cold winter months. He is a Congestive Heart Failure patient, on a walker and cannot be left alone for more than a few hours.   With both my wife and I retired, we are not use to being house bound.  The beach house becoming available on a 70 degree weekend was perfect timing. My Father-in-law loved sitting on the deck watching all the people with their dogs walk by.   Of course having the neighbors performing yoga on the beach every morning didn't hurt either.  I mean my wife being into yoga enjoyed watching them........
