An Embarssing Moment

Let me share one of my more, uh, how should I say it....not so smart moments in life. Then I am signing off and heading for the fart sack. Had way too much fun around here today.
When my kids were younger, guess that would make me younger too, we had a house with a very large, nicely landscaped yard. I love gardening, and being outdoors is always a pleasure. It was Fall at the time, and I had lots of trees in the yard, so there were lots of leaves to rake. I raked all day and built myself this huge pile of dead leaves on the dirt patch were my garden had been behind the house. That pile must have been 6 x 8 feet and four feet high. It was very tempting to just jump in bury myself in that pile and play like a child, but I managed to keep myself maintained and resisted. I figured the quickest way to get rid of the leaves would be to burn them, so I went to the shed and grabbed the gasoline can. "KIDS - DO NOT DO THIS!" Not giving it much thought, I poured gasoline all over my pile of leaves, put the gasoline away, and standing back a ways, I lit a match and threw it onto the leaves. Let me tell you, the combustion when the match hit the gasoline, lifted me off my feet and sent me over backwards about three feet. That whole pile of leaves lifted a good foot off the ground and flaming leaves fluttered daintily to the ground all over the yard. It took me a few seconds to realize that I was still alive, (shock), and you know what the first thing I did was? Look around to see if anyone else had seen how stupid I had been. Then I set to running about putting out little fires.
I would have made a good "Lucy" doncha' think?

Good night everyone.

The day I was burning a pile of brush by myself on a day that was a bit too windy. Not smart. I finally saw with my own eyes, a fire actually JUMP. I didn't have time to run and get water or anything else cause the fire was headed out. I had a shovel so I worked and worked to control the grass fire by smothering flames with that. I must have worked hard and furious for 45 min to get it under control when my neighbor came walking across the field. He says, "are you having fun." I says, no, it was going to burn your house. He says, oh, I thought you were playing so I just watched!
