Your daily dose of manure

Just a quiet night in the country

Sometimes when the temperature gets a little warmer and the wind dies down, Ed decides to really spice things up a notch ’round here and hollers out “Let’s build a fire and burn something!”  The kids come swarming downstairs screaming with glee at the thought of such dangerous destruction and help him assemble supplies.  Last night the victim was a long dead huge tree that was growing kind of sideways around the ancient metal ice cream truck thingy that used to be the goat shed.  Got all that?  Great.  Let’s get the show on the road then.

By the time I came down from working, Ed had things well underway.

See what I mean about growing crooked?  All that big huge log on the ground used to be attached to that stump up above the shed and it was straight sideways I tell ya.

Now, you can’t burn without a fire crew hanging around.

He takes his job very seriously.

He had his work cut out for him because inside the shed was the straw bedding from the goats and it was going like blazes.   Pun intended.

He’s also telling me quit talking because because he’s using all his concentration.

We were waiting for that big part to drop down and break up.  Doesn’t this look like fun?  Don’t you wish you were here?

Here’s Ed sitting down waiting for that big part to break off.  He told me it was giving off a nice warmth so I decided to join him.

He was right.  I stretched out my feet and they were quite toasty.

Vincent never waivered in his duties.   That boy is dedicated.

Now you might be asking yourself, “Self, I wonder what the back of that burning down tree looks like.”  Well I’m glad you asked.

Doesn’t look like much holding it up does it?

Vincent said it was only hot on one side of his face.

The girls didn’t seem to mind.  Hey, it was bedtime and they take bedtime very seriously.  Not too much interferes with their schedule.

So we continued to just sit around and enjoy the show.

Hey wait a minute!  Does it look like that big part’s hanging lower?

Definitely lower!

Yup, lower and it looks like it’s about to ……..

drop.

Well.  That was fun.  Now what?

Never fear.

Ed already had another one going.  So.  Yeah.  That’s pretty much what we do – just go around burning stuff.
