Some real beauties there between the two of you. I had a chance to get one for a mere pittance at the tractor swap meet, but alas, it was a complete rust bucket... and they are BIG!!! :frightened:

High, wide and handsome; Randy's in charge!!! :applause:

I thought I would search on that phrase and it is buried deeper than I remember and if you are not familiar with it, might not find it.

The three burner is the best. One can cook bacon on one side and potatos on the other with space for plates or whatever you need. Coffee if you drink it. It like extra counter space. 8)

That is where I found out about the expression. NPR gushed all over the "Charlie Poole Project" when it came out. There was about 3 months it seemed you could not turn on NPR and not hear something about it. Specially Terry Gross and Fresh Air. Almost made me sick of some fine music.

Pretty or not it is a High Wide and Handsome deed to pull a fine working stove out of a scrape pile.

Live long and High Wide and Handsome
