January 30, 2014: I Wonder How Many

This is the wood cook stove in the family farm kitchen.  As of this writing, the Old Man still uses it to cook breakfast every morning and keep the coffee hot during the day. Over the span of the 100 plus years this stove has sat here,  I wonder how many pancakes have come off its griddle, or how many eggs have been fried on its surface, or how many quarts of green beans have been canned with its heat.  The numbers would be astronomical.

Or how many times the words "Uff Da" have been uttered there? Nice bit of Norwegian flair and another nice photo.
