thank you shirly and shanbear. i am so very, very happy that the damage wasn't worse. AND that matthew was awake instead of napping. he heard it and put the fire out by the house before the fire department could get there. i hate to think what could have happened frown frown

I thank God no one was hurt, Jiffy, and that Matthew was home. When did this happen? What started it?

from what we can tell, a can of camp stove fuel (a must during hurricane season) was sitting in the shade but still got hot enough to spontaneously combust. fortunately, the damage is manageable, and matthew was awake and heard the "boom" but by the time he got outside, it was against the house. another fortunate thing is that the waterhose is on that end of the house. thankful are we right now.

Oh Jiffy, those pics are bad but I am so thankful it was not worse. So glad Matthew was home and kept his head cool and did what needed to get done. He saved your home. kissies to him and to all of you as you clean up from this mess.

I am so glad Matthew kept a cool head and was able to get it extinguished by the house before the fire department got there. Fires are scary business...

I was worried sick all afternoon until I heard from you again Jiffy.

You must have a lot of guardian angels around your house...

I'm so glad Matthew got it out in time.

Certainly glad things weren't worse! ...and good job to Matthew. The damage to the house isn't too bad.

On a lighter note, did you ever realize that all of those trees are in rows???

laugh laugh laugh yes, jenn, i did. we actually bought 1/7th of an old tree farm. these pines are what they use to make all kinds of paper. typing paper, toilet paper, paper towels, even charmin. in fact, teech the softer the tissue, the less recycle paper and more real wood pulp is in it! nutz i know that doesn't seem right, but that is some trivia i learned when i worked at the papermill!

you know, as has been said many times in the last few weeks, this is the best "created" family ever. and it was comforting to know, while i was driving, that by making one phone call, i could get the prayers of hundreds or even thousands. and i honestly believe those prayers did make a difference. kissies i can't use enough grimlins to give you each a kiss, but know that i would hug and kiss each of you if i could!
