Praise Batman, We gots us a party!

So we had a little dinner party on Sunday night for my birthday. Nothing fancy, just a few friends, some beer, wine, food and good conversation. It was very low-key. So I'm not exactly sure when things got to this point:



So anyway, if you happened to notice a slight glow toward the northern horizon, that was coming from my back yard. Whenever I invite Fireboy to the house, it's almost a given that sometime during the night I'll be hooking the hose up to put something out. You turn your back on him for a split second, and next thing you know, something's going up in flames. Most of the time it's outside at least, so...there's that.

The one thing this photo doesn't show, since I blurred his image to avoid unnecessarily alerting the authorities to his whereabouts, is the look of fervent joy on his face as he watched the tree burn. It was a look that clearly said, "This is what I was born to do."

I knew I should have dragged that old christmas tree out of sight when I had the chance, because it, as so many things at my house apparently do, "needed burnin'."

Dammit.

    Dude, in my defense it was still outside in May and only about 3 feet from your deck.

  7. Point taken, but I will add that it sat there without bothering anybody since January and not once did it burst into flames. Well, until Sunday night. Damn that thing was hot. I have no idea how you actually held it without lighting yourself on fire. Good stuff.
