Buffalo's Central High School Class of 1912. My grandfather, the Class Poet, is in the top row, 6th from the right. And my younger son, George, graduated yesterday. The Class Poet's son, George's grandfather, was there to watch.
Adam Gibson reports on a recent Buffalo outing with his son Trent:
"I am not sure if you have ever had the opportunity to visit the Buffalo Fire Museum but it is really something you should consider on one of your trips home. I meant to tell you weeks ago when we were there that I ran into some older gentle souls that volunteer there that used to work for Buffalo Forge. Most of the tour guides are retired fireman and like I mentioned the one guy I spoke with had some amazing Buffalo forge stories to tell me. Here are a few pics from the visit. The museum is located in the Love Joy district."
Thanks, Adam. If you get a chance, check it out. The address is: 1850 William Street, Buffalo, NY 14206. The phone number is (716) 892-8400.
A Buffalo Forge grill gets hot—hot enough to melt rivets. Adam Gibson, who really knows how to restore them, recommends this paint. Adam writes:
"There is no better product to use for these grills than KBS Xtreme temperature coating! I hand paint mine on with three coats... anyone wishing to restore their grill or touch it up can use it on the pan and the heat shield. For hard to reach spots the high heat paint in the spray form will work fine. I hand paint all my items carefully and take my time to make it look good. This KBS product is not cheap but it looks and performs much better than most products I have tried in the past."
Thanks for the tip, Adam. My heat shield is blistering--I better get some KBS.
