we got the high end 3 door ss in the kitchen. Keeps a constant 37* and -2 in the freezer. Food stays fresh a long time with this baby. Got the white 2 door top freezer unit in the back room with the laundry...mainly for beverages and freezer space. Looking into a small freezer for those sales on meat etc.

Get a Woods, GE, Frigidaire or a Kenmore 5.3. That's the size of mine.

A sweet memory. When I was growing up, my grandfather Sam had us convinced that there was a chocolate tree growing in the metal cabinet that was his kitchen's pantry. I remember examining the shelves with my brother and cousin to see if we could find the branches. That's because Grandpa always brought us Hershey bars.

GB, the chest freezer you speak of had a similar enchantment. Whenever we would visit your parents, your mom would go down to the basement and pull magic out of that chest... little squares of lemon deliciousness or chocolatey goodness, magical cookie bars or other undoubtedly sinful pleasures. Uncle G was convinced that your mother single handedly supported the sugar producers of the world. If we were really lucky, we would show up not long after some occasion that had her making multiple desserts that got stowed in the freezer and had to be eaten.

Oh my. I need a piece of chocolate.

We just have the fridge/freezer in the kitchen, that is it. Would like to have a chest freezer as well as a small beverage fridge but that is on the 'someday' wish list.

Yeah, it seems you and I are the only folks here having to make do with 1 fridge. Are we underprivileged?

Hey, you two underprivileged souls! You can get another refrigerator like we did...yard sale. We bought the one for our shop at such a sale for $30. Granted it's avocado green, but it works. Where's your faith?

Where's your can of spray paint??

We could always take up a collection, any extra to go towards filling them.
Probably not tax deductible though....

I think you need to hurry up and recover Buddy so we can hit the yard sales. Actually, the idea of a "flower power" fridge painted up like an old hippie VW "Love Machine" van appeals to me.

Okay, now you're talkin'! Just think of the possibilities. A "peace" symbol and words like "Peace," "Love" and "D..." Won't say it here. This is a family site. There are endless possibilities. Who can't forget, "Flower Power!?"

Now we're gettin' it goin'!
