Re: Sink

Cool color! I have an old double porcelain sink too...not much to look
at...but not willing to replace it yet. I'd rather have a new OVEN

  Today is the day that we bought a new kitchen sink. The very idea of 
buying a new kitchen sink seemed so odd to me at first that I wondered 
if someone had put something weird in our water. It would be hard to 
argue that didn't need replacing; some of the porcelain on old sink had 
worn away and it had been chipped here and there. But, even so, its 
main offense was its color--a sort of mustard yellow.

So we went to the local mom-and-pop plumbing store. Guy there told us 
to go to Lowe's, find the one we wanted, get the model number, and he 
would beat the price. And he'd beat the price on the fixture, too. So 
that's what we did. We're getting a red, single Kohler sink--at about 5 
percent less than Lowe's price and with delivery about 4 weeks sooner 
than Lowe's could guarantee.

We decided on a single sink for two reasons. One, we've got pots and 
pan that won't fit in either compartment of a double sink [including 
those goofy asymmetrical doubles] and the hump that makes it a double 
takes up at least 4 inches of potentially useable space; two, the more 
we talked about it, the more came to the conclusion that the double 
sink was an idea--one side to wash, one side to rinse--whose time had 
passed. One probably has to be a WWII war bride to still do dishes that 

Anyway... we're now going to have this glorious red, very large sink.
