Open Burning Rocks!


In our backyard, there is a large pile of sticks. Some of them are rather small, and some of them are the huge branches that have fallen off our neighbor's tree into our yard. We've been piling them up in our garden plot all year just waiting for that magical time known as Open Burning!




Yes... I do live in a small town. Why do you ask?


Tonight it was time to say goodbye to about half of the stick pile. So we called up Casey and Sheri, bought some hot dogs and marshmallows, and lit a fire in our backyard. How cool is that? We lit a FIRE in our BACKYARD!!! We burnt a bunch of sticks, roasted some hot dogs, made some S'mores, and had a wonderful time! This was Nathan's first time eating a S'more, and he enjoyed it thoroughly!


So... what are you doing next weekend? We've still got half a stick pile left... and I can always buy more marshmallows!

Well Dig, I guess we'll just have to have a repeat performance when you guys get back in town. Like I said, we've still got half a stick pile!

Isn't it fun burning sticks! The only thing better than burning them in your backyard is burning them on the gravel behind your garage and roasting marshmallows. Can you say, "I'm a hick"!

What's the date and time for the next burning of the sticks? Also - did you know that the best way to make a smore is to place the chocolate inside the marshmallow. Mmm the chocolate just MELTS!!!

Okay, by the look of all these comments you are going to need more sticks, and I happen to have a stack of wood beside my garage. So, if I get an invite, I will bring enough wood to fuel enough fire to feed all these people. By the way, do you know how cool a marshmallow looks when you throw it into the fire?! It looks like a giant firewords snake!
