...tryin' to burn the house down........:shocked

Well, actually not. Probably a coal fell out of the bottom of the grill and the wind we've been having lately got it started. But the fire guys sure like to tear things up...:toothless...called it in to State Farm.

No real damage but we'll get a new porch floor out of it. Joists are okay except for a little charring.

Charcoal grill on a wood porch Marv, c'mon you should know better?? I bought one of those fire retardant mats for the deck when I cook outside, for just that reason.

Oh, here's a couple of the volunteer fire guys. The kid on the right in the grey sweat runs the local Bumper-to-Bumper. His Grandpa used to be the fire chief.

oh man. maybe you can blame it on the cat or something. hey, remember that guy who had the burning mouse light his house up? since you read the story, you have been ever vigilant and were able to catch it before the house caught. :thumbup

Why are you giving away the ribs? Something wrong with them or are you just afraid to cook now? :toothless

Nah. They turned out real good. Wifey swore 'em off - diet y'know. But a WHOLE slab? Gonna have to freeze 'em.

Now cats'n'mice? Hate 'em both. We don't have mice, and I think I killed off the last ferral cat around here. No alibi there....:shrug

Wife took it nice; asked, "What happened?", so I told her that I tried to burn the house down, but failed...;)

Funny thing is that the other day I was thinking that the white lattice that keeps coming loose needs to be redone. Then I thought, :rolleyes: hell, I'd just redo the whole porch. I guess I've got a good start.......:pickle:
