Default Poll what age were you when you started your oven

This is something of a test to see if this area of the forum gets more attention and whether people respond. Compleletly painless (and free)

Hey look. 100 % in their 40's! That's what I thought!

What about the pre 20 enthusiasts?

And Dust is a special category for Dusty!

George, when we were younger we learned to categorize the retired community into oldies, wrinklies and crumblies (pre dust)
....maybe not so funny anymore

Ha! I didn't know that you can show who voted what...

Makes me glad I started my oven last year and not this - makes me feel at least ten years younger!!

Okay, so my vote was preemptive. But I'm 36, and if I can't start this project before I turn 40, I probably don't deserve my own WFO anyway.

Do we win Caputo if we are in the top category?

I definitely know builders in the 60+ camp. Jim, your poll sounds like age discrimination.

Side note -- my sister-in-law turns 50 today. Good thing we aren't in the same country right now. She has a few months to settle down before summer vacation. :-)
