  3. At least you have a good adittude about the whole thing. I love some pillows I see in the picture. Enjoy the rest of the season. Merry Christmas:)

  4. My son and daughter's boyfriend had been fixing it over the past few weeks, and had just filled it with fuel, ready to take it down to the river to see if it works ok. They tried to start it , and boom! Very lucky to tell the story! There must have been a fuel leak.We had two hoses on it but the flames kept coming, so we had no choice but to call the firemen.We had a car attached with jumperleads(on gas), and two others close by, it could have been a disaster!
    There were a few lessons learnt, one in particular, check your fire extinguishers often.Ours didnt work when we needed it!

  5. Wow, it sounds like you could really use the down time. Enjoy your holidays, and I look forward to seeing what's in store for next year.

  6. Wow I love that last picture and that chair. Wonderful.
