My New Proofer

My daughter gave me a Brod & Taylor proofer for Christmas.  It's the best thing since sliced bread.  Here are a couple of pics of the product:

Lovely looking bread. What a nice present.

. . . soon.  As soon as I saw your request I took a series of pics showing it at the various stages of setup, which is very simple.  Of course, as the poet said, "The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley."  I had no sooner taken the last picture than the battery on my camera died; now I have to wait for it to charge before I can transfer the pics.

Be back to you soon.
