burning down the house....

Like the Talking Heads said,
last night I was done with the work and watched Blazing Saddles when Chris and Trevor across the street call. It had stopped raining, there were beers and an enormous bonfire. We were up rather late.....all wives were elsewhere, this was man's work, scratching bellies, talking frisbee golf, burping and being silly...
Trevor happens to be a firefighter. He was still in part of his uniform from the day. He tells me "firefighters LOVE having fires, burning things up". Potters too....Chris was chasing me around with my own camera for a while there, but these 3 humiliating pics of self are enough :)
