Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

My new stove for the primitive kitchen

 OK.  So I've got this idea.  My old stove from the 1970's only has two eyes that work anyway.  I haven't turned the oven on in 15 years.   I bought this 1920's maybe 30's stove a couple of weeks ago;  it is gas but that isn't going to happen, so I removed the gas eyes to create an open space. 
 I'm going to Lowe's or Home Depot and find one of those drop-in electric set of eyes to go in the space. I don't need but two burners. ( I can't manage four going at the same time and wouldn't have four things cooking at the same time anyway)
The drop-in might need a bit of an adjustment but I can hire someone to do that.  Slowly my kitchen is going to turn into an acceptable place for a primitive house.  I can store the three cooking pans I own in the oven part.   That's my grand idea.
