Bill and I were shopping in Houghton Lake. I always stop in the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store to hunt for antique light fixtures. For cabin lighting, the uglier, the better!
Well, on our way in... I spotted this beautiful 1950's General Electric range. We asked the man that runs the store if it worked. He said that he briefly tested it and all 4 burners and both ovens work! He is not sure if they work well, but they do work. This will be a great addition to our cabin, once we have it cleaned up in the spring. Bill does need to replace the old 220 plug with a newer one and he will check the rest of the wiring. It will have to sit in our garage downstate, until I can give it a good cleaning in the spring.
We don't know the exact year, I've googled it, but can't find any info on this model. If you know anyone who may be able to identify the year, let us know.
GE model #J466A1WH
Here are some of the feature's:
'Push-button' burners, one large burner, 3 regular burners
2 ovens, one is 1/3, the other is 2/3
both original broiler pans!
1 oven window
flourescent cook-top light
2 oven timers
individual oven controls
Here are some pics in our garage

After the morning hunt, I headed back to the cabin for lunch. Dee made homemade French Dip, it was awesome. After lunch I started working on the plumbing leak. I crawled into the attic and started the repair work. When I thought I had it fixed, we charged the system and it was still leaking. I told Dee I would look at it again after the evening hunt. So I head back out. Still saw nothing, but here are some pics of the sunset.
On the way out of the woods, Dee called me and told me she was sick and throwing up. So off to Wally world to get some medicine and gatorade for her. Got to the cabin and Dee was in bed with the hounds. I gave her some meds and cooked a frozen pizza for myself for dinner. I would work on the plumbing in the morning after the hunt.
I woke up in the AM and it was so foggy I could not see the lake from the cabin. No sense in going hunting, can't see anything. Once Dee got up I went to work on the plumbing. Below are pics from the attic. (Note those fabulous full log beams!)
The job is done...or so I thought. After three attempts it was still leaking. By this time it was late in the afternoon. So I did no hunting on Sunday. We are now pricing out PEX pipe for the cabin. PEX is supposed to be able to handle 6X the amount of water or ice pressure without rupturing...we'll see.
Wouldn't be a post without a pic of the hounds. Kaiser and Cleo enjoying lying on the our bed.
Not the best weekend but it was still great to be at the cabin with Dee and the hounds.

Bill, Cleo and Kaiser after our 3 mile walk.
This was an odd tree. It had one branch that grew to the ground and re-rooted and grew back up.

Kaiser really enjoys the dog bed Mom bought for him. We keep it in her car and he just hops right up there if the hatch is left open.
Basking in the sun is awesome.
Running around the cabin with the swim noodle is a lot of fun. It is too funny because as he runs the noodle is hitting the trees, so all you hear is THUD, THUD, THUD.

Twins sleeping on the couch. Actually, Kaiser has to be wrapped around your head. Here he is with Daddy. Kaiser ran out in the street a few days earlier, downstate, and got hit by a car. He is fine, just a little sore.

Here is our clan. Sean, Jimmy, Debbie, Denise, Kate and Sara.
My Cousin Frank's little one was having a great time playing in the rain.
Here is a pic of all of our nieces and nephews. It is a very occasion that we are all together in the same place at the same time.
From L to R; Sean, Kate, Sara, Jimmy, Michelle, Shandra and of course Our Cleo had to be in the picture as well.
Linda has already arrived back home and Kevin and the girls are driving back home tomorrow. Sean is staying a few exrta days. So we are taking him and Jimmy up to the cabin for a few days of fishing. I am really looking forward to it. The truck is packed and we are just waiting for the morning to come. It is going to be a very nice time.
We will talk to everyone when we get back next week. I leave you with a couple of pics of our angel dog Kaiser.
