That man lives elsewhere, believe me. But that is my beautiful oven, or was.
I found this image at lileks.com while searching (unsuccessfully) for a picture of a professor from the dowdy world. The oven in question was made by General Electric. One such oven came with our house (I'm guessing that it was original equipment, circa 1959). That oven disappeared last week when we replaced it with a new one (also by GE) that heats evenly and doesn't have a non-working clock/timer emitting a constant slight buzz, reminding those of us sitting at the kitchen table that we really need to do something about that oven.
[Readers of a certain age are expected to recognize an allusion to Talking Heads' "Once in a Lifetime."]
