Uncle Hoover and the huckleberry jelly

By Capt. Bill Watkins

My uncle Silas purchased a chest type freezer way back in 1948 (The same year that I was born). It lasted around twenty years; much longer than any home appliance purchased nowadays. It sat in the same spot in the pantry room on the west side of the house and was never moved until the compressor failed. Like all chest freezers, it was so full of frozen food that one could hardly shut the lid. The frozen items on top were partially thawed before they realized that the old freezer had given up the ghost. Of course, this is the same way that we always find out that our freezers are dead. When freezers die, the task is always the same. Hurry and purchase a new freezer and try to dig all of the frozen food out and transfer it before it thaws.
