I have begged and begged for one of these for a hundred years!
Well maybe not quite that long but a long long long time.
I even bought this great sink from a guy who was having a yardsale and somehow Robin and I, after buying 2 whole pickup loads of goodies from him, were up in his garage that was chock full of goodies like this. I got the sink for $25 and it had almost no rust on it at the time, 4-5 years ago, but Danny thought it was junk and would not even begin to think of putting it to use in or out of his house, so it went to the woods!
Where it gathered more rust!! Urgh!!
He is on vacation as of this morning for a week and I did not give him a list this year, but I did politely ask for this sink to be hung behind the house to use to wash veggies in. He did not stutter or stammer or call me names or anything!! What has he done? He must be in trouble?? Hmm??
I was wanting this hung so bad but at the same time I didn't want it to be hung too permanently cause I might just need it in my barn when he gets it built....(next years vacation list I guess)
So he built me a frame and we can always move it around.....well it weighs 2 ton so it won't be moved very much!
See it's a water collection system too. He is so smart!
He is going to run the water into a receptacle and have a spout with a hose so we can run it out of the receptacle to the garden below!! woot woot!!
Right now a five gallon bucket will suffice!
I wanted the faucet but I was soooooooo afraid to ask for it....afraid to push my luck, I was just going to use the water hose.
He said "Don't you want a real faucet?" I said "Oh you mean you can do that?"
gotta know how to play them men!!
Can you just imagine all the use that one would get out of an outdoor sink like this?
Washing veggies straight from the garden is number one on the list!
Those dirty potatoes and onions especially!
I just had to put the enamelware dipper out there so my grandkids can experience sharing a dipper with everyone else in the family like we used to do!!
See the galvanized laundry sinks behind there??.........well they go with my wringer washer that I would use if I had a way to get hot water to it. I think I have finally dropped enough hints about where that should be placed by now........he is even giving me new ideas....so it is on his mind now!!! He said we would dig out under the deck behind where the sink is sitting now and pour concrete, place a cover under the deck above for cover from the rain and run hot and cold water down there for the wringer to be used!! OMG I am going to faint!!!
He really does love me, doesn't he????
