How Long Till a Woman Joins

PostBy: coalstoves On: Mon. Jan. 07, 2008 5:16 am

I am sure there’s a woman or two out there manning the fires, My mothers next door neighbor a 76 year ole gal keeps a Heatrola running in the basement to offset her electric cost she has been doing this all my life that I can remember she's real picky about coal too . She never misses an opportunity to come out and Bitch about her Coal man whenever she sees me bringing a load into my Moms .
For a number of years after my Dad passed away and up until this heating season my Mother shook the grates on the Franco Belge and took the ashes to a tub and I would do the filling, this year she has the Harman I still fill it and she likes to push the coal forward in the hopper when it gets uneven .
There’s a gal over on a local community board who I have seen reference a coal stove I may have to invite her over here to take a look
