But if it makes you feel better about my mis-scheduled life, we're celebrating my birthday today by me taking Mrs. 'Mask out to supper.
She just wanted to ensure that you showed yourself a good time.

That's about the only way I'll have much of a birthday anyway. If buy Mrs. 'Mask enough apple-pom coolers, I might even get lucky.

I remembered this thread when I was out riding my bike!

I hate the creepy ear pans!!!! You can find them anywhere!

Thanks for that link. I know the wedge pans are still available new but it makes me so happy to rummage through piles of stuff in the shops on Clinton Street or in Watkin's Glen and find one someone used for years.

I got my cast iron griddle that way.

and my Jadeite oatmeal bowls.

Photomask - Thanks for sharing the photos. If possible post some more.

I certainly hope she has a will leaving those treasures to a museum or to another collector. I would hate for China to end up with them.

Don't worry about China. There are far too many anvil lovers in north Texas to let them go to scrap....

I only have the anvil, no base.
If some one could use this and could pick it up email me.
