Very nice, Gary! I'll bet that baby will hold a nice amount of bean soup!

Alan said...

Is that called a brazier? I saw them or similar things used in 1600's cooking on a show in TVO around Yuletide past.

gr said...

OH HO! Braziar! No, I think that is what women wear under their sweaters.

Bean soup! Sure thing, fill it up with bean soup grego, then we can warm our feet over it! I should send dimensions.

10 years in February ... :-D

Is a "dual poosting" legal?

gr said...

a dual poosting is OK in certain downtown neighborhoods where people explore alternative lifestyles

oh you meant BRAZIER. righto. that is a little beanpot which you set on fire to keep your feet warm, right?

greg said...

yepper a kind of brazier for holding a coal or two to keep one's tootsies warm.. or place in the middle of a table to eminate heat to all sitting around.

as for bean soup.. NOT IN MY BRAZIER! those I'll keep in my pipkin thank-you very much. ;)

greg said...

dual posting.. hmm def legal up here in Canuckistan.. not sure about down thar.. but with gary being an "artiste" they might just let him off with a sigh and a warning

Maggie said...

You know if someone were to put something liquid in that pot and then drink out of the handle...k, I shouldn't go there.

I'm sorry Gary - bout the comment. I'm surprised you didn't fire me...

denis said...

are you sure it's not a bed pan?

Mona Buonanotte said...

Mags, I think gr "firing" someone is a compliment. Complement? Spellcheck, anyone?

BTW, Gary, Blogger is being a naughty child about me leaving comments...all stompy and whiny and error messagey
