There's A Brand New Baby At Our House

You've heard me wax poetic about my dear friend and neighbor Charlie.  Well, he's joined the gang by starting a blog called Hollywood High Dropout.  He will doubtless be regaling us with stories about his madcap upbringing here in the land of show.  Stop by and visit, give love and cheer him on!

Dear Charlie also arranged a new addition to my home:

A 1957 O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas range!  Is she a beauty or what?  I think she needs a name.  Any suggestions?

Handsome, classic & sexy... I would expect nothing less.

It looks like a "Pops" to me. You know, he used to fry up hamburger sandwiches for juvenile delinquents back in the day. And there was always a big bubbling cauldron of chili for those burgers.

Name her Georgia O'Kieffe and Merritt.

Why do I think O'K&M was Canadian?

i LOVE her! she is gorgeous and i say beulah.

Gorgeous!

I used to have the Chambers model in red but sold her into scullery servitude. I’m evil that way and she turned a tidy profit.

I’m thinking Hazel.

Baby is HOT!
I'm thinking she's a little loose on the weekends....a bit too stylish to cook, unless she feels like it. I hear Betty.

Cool Cookie beat me to it. I was going to say "Georgia".

Ask the Cool Cookie said...

Keeps Georgia on my mind....

Been there, done that. It's just an old stove.

I would like to say 'Martha' - I had an aunt Martha who could bake you a cake while knitting you a sweater and she still had time to paint her toe nails jungle red.

MJ said...

I would like to see you barefoot and chained to the stove wearing nothing but a lacey apron.

Please see to it that a photo arrives in my inbox, pronto.

And I second Normadesmond's "Beulah".

Big, white, and popular in the 50's. I would say Rose Marie.

Della is a good one too.

normadesmond said...

someone needs an usher.

jason said...

Hayward, is that you?
yeay!
Good call, btw.

Michael Guy said...

Wow, she's a real beauty! For some reason I'm thinking "Myrtle" is the name. Go figure; maybe I'm psychic and getting a reading from 'the other side'... :)

Yay Charlie.
Oh my god ... these pictures are even better (well, granted, the others were on your phone.) Wow.
