an upgrade?

I was trying to spare all of you from the horror that truly was the old stove. I really was. But now that Barbara has commented that they perhaps look similar I feel compelled to share. Above is a picture of the old stove - true, it doesn't look so bad. But I assure you the oven would make any clean freak head for the hills.

Besides the obvious now consistent element of stainless steel in the kitchen - the new stove does not have a back control panel. A big step up in my opinion and just about the only reason I selected the model I did. (It creates an illusion of spaciousness, I swear)

Thom had his suspicions before the removal of the old stove - he saw a tail or two on occasion. I won't even tell you where - you might vomit, as I almost did. Once the stove was removed it became evident there were some unwelcome visitors hanging out back there. Thom & Tung have since stuffed every crevice with steel wool and we hope not to be seeing those guys anytime soon. Especially since the last time we lived with mice Jasper actually made friends with them and used to bring them food. I am not kidding.

We'll have none of that here.


P.S. This is a humane trap. With a little reminder from Thom to "get lost" - hopefully the mice are literate.

since i saw you posting WHILE you were supposed to be talking to me, i figured i'd check out the update. (procrastination, anyone?) the stove looks so good!

Hahaha. Yes he did, and then he just watched as they rolled the dog food out of your room, across the floor and into our roommate's closet. Good times.

You're right...The new one is much nicer..and I hope the little guys leave...

I could say Jasper needs a little brother to play with but I won't...
Good luck getting the mice to move out.

I will say...
You have great house that you are turning into a beautiful home. Hopefully some day soon we will be back in NY and maybe talk you into giving a tour??
