Looking ahead, it appears we will be on the beach some next year! DIL text to tell us she got us a spot near them for next summer!

I think I can feel the sand between my toes already.
Oh never mind, thatís just sheet rock dust Iím feeling.

For those that donít know this, a heat gun doesnít immediately cool down when you release the trigger.

Yep, now sporting a nice new blister on my forearm.

Whoops, Maryís been picking the garden, just stuck her head in the door shouting, Where Are You? Later!

"Crew"? You get a crew??? Plutocrats!

Sympathies on the heat gun learning curve!

Solar: Refrigerator on 100 Watts, most likely. Add electric heater and other accessories..me thinks not.

This would work Kerosene Heater

Tim would do anything to keep Bambi warm.z

Maybe not such a good idea since he can't keep heat away from his skin!!

I guess the fire extinguisher didn't work out so well.

Glad you had the frame of mind to move your car out of there quickly. Looks like the whole place burned up.

Lawsie! you 2 were lucky beyond belief! I get the shakes just thinking of Denise standing there, not to mention Dennis banging on the box!

Heat guns, exploding RVs, & now (since bad things come in 3s, I'm told) there's been an earthquake west of Indianapolis. Small at 3 point something, but not nothing, either. Are our local RVMs safe?

My second thought was "pilot light" left on in van.

Stay safe everyone.

Iím not sure, but it seems Dennisís might have had more luck breaking into the extinguisher box had he used his head. Literally his head!

You could have a point there Timster, but you would have to comb your hair differently for us to see it.

Sue we took off not the young couple. The fire was spreading quickly and becoming very big very fast and I did not see the parking lot as a good place to be.

I tried to help and I was originally pumping gas and Denise was there just chatting when it all started. I ran for a fire extinguisher and she was putting the hose away etc. We kind of switched positions at the pump. She sure did her best to help.

While we were trying to help it wasn't hard to notice all the anals with their cell phones dutifully recording for posterity what was happening.

Be careful! You donít want to blister your toes. The sand here in Dateland is too hot to walk on barefoot after about 9 AM every day. Sand with a cool ocean breeze, that sounds heavenly!
