Patti:  No need for confusion.  It's small enough to fit on some surfaces, unless you have wall cabinets which sit too low, although probably not in most modern flats with kitchen cabinets on the wall.  When I used it the thing was stacked on top of my fridge, both being tucked away in a corner.

I replaced it with a taller one when I started doing more cooking for myself.  The bigger replacement now sits underneath my fridge, in the same corner.  All properly wired in and very handy.  Looks a bit like one of those tall fridge/freezer units, and set on runners so I can pull it forward from the wall if I need to work on it, or clean up any spills which run underneath.

Frank:  If I really can't shift it there are a couple of local charities who re-furbish and sell furniture and appliances.  At least that would see it going to a good home instead of just being scrapped.

But I'll carry on trying to sell it for bit longer yet.  It's not taking up that much room.

Just so you can both see the size, compared to a washing machine here's a picture.

Rather handy to have.

Especially now that everyone's posting about flat shares etc

Some of the horror stories from London's subreddit are insane

Ie cot in a walk in closet goes for £1100 😱

That looks like a dorm fridge or a hotel one, but those are part refrigerator and part freezer. It would be handy for someone who needed a bit more space for their Costco crap.

Frank, they can only sell it for that much if someone else is willing to pay that much for a closet. NYC has outrageous rents, too. That's just one of the many reasons I don't live there.

You definitely were.

I managed to sell my kneeling chair.  To a short little lady who said she was worried it might be a bit too tall for her.   So I took it down to the middle setting and told her the only way to be sure was to sit on it.

So she parked herself, with her coat brushing the carpet, wriggled a little bit, straightened her back - as you do when sitting on one of these things, - and then smiled. "It's surprisingly comfortable."

She handed over the money and off she went, looking pleased with her purchase.  If she changes her mind she can sell it on again, as she does a fair bit of trading herself.

You must have missed the whole saga about the project.  I bought one of these, second-hand, (the price was right), and after much experimentation realised it wasn't for me.  They do make them for taller people, but the usual ones suit shorter people.

Happy it's getting put to use rather than being tossed in the rubbish pile

Now to sell the freezer!

The Silver Sneakers class was overfilled again today. The YMCA has finally realized that more people would like to take the class than the spaces they have available. So they are thinking about making the class available at 11 AM and Noon, with 20 spots each time rather than just noon with 30 spots. I would love to have it at 11 AM. I hope it happens.

It looks as if the freezer will move homes today.  A little bit of haggling going on, but I'm prepared to accept their offer if they won't budge.  Cash in hand is always a major player in haggling ;-)  I should know, I've often swung a deal by rustling a handful of 'ready money' whilst the 'pay more if you have to' cash sits in another pocket just in case.

I know our son wants to be alive and healthy, but ...
I had another fit today. He like bench presses because they help keep the muscles one needs to get up if they fall over and old farts tend to fall over a lot. So, way too many bench presses. I had a fit last year and then said he could put them back. But they came ball ALL THE TIME. Fully 25% of the workouts have the damn things and I hate them.

Dick golfs on Wednesday so I was out there by myself with DB bench press on the menu and I almost just came in the house. Instead, I switched them to hang power cleans, something I love to do. And then told Craig I was doing zero bench presses in February and if they appeared in two consecutive cycles, for the second one, I would use my baby 3# DB or a PVC pipe, depending on which kind he wrote in.

I HATE presses and there are so many other things. And what is really good for us is moving more, getting out there at all is a plus. We never have to fight off a long line of people trying to get into the OPG.

The freezer saga continues...

    Is illiteracy, or perhaps attention deficit disorder,  far more widespread than we realise?

    For the last couple of weeks I've been trying to sell a small Freezer.

    The advert has attracted quite a bit of interest, but half of the would-be buyers seem to think I'm selling a Fridge.

    Today's caller and I have spent about three days worth of to and fro emails trying to arrange a suitable time for him to collect.  His face fell when he realised it wasn't the fridge that he's been after.

    I've checked my advert and yes, it definitely says Freezer. 

    Do these looking for a fridge just read the first letter and then wishful thinking kicks in?

    If I had a shed full of second-hand fridges I could have sold them all by now. and be rolling in cash. ;-)

    I'm beginning to feel as if it's cursed.  Like the Ancient Mariner's Albatross hung around his neck

    I'm also trying to sell a two drawer filing cabinet.  So far no-one has misread this as a two door hatchback, or cabriolet, or caravan, or whatever.

Idiots are everywhere. There is no plan to rid the world of them. In fact, we keep putting warning labels on things to make sure they survive.

They keep breeding, that's the problem.
