One Lucky Young Man !


Got a phone call from my youngest son, Bo, today and he told me that he was cleaning the place up and decided to burn some limbs and trash that he had piled up.  Well, he went into the garage and picked up the Diesel can but had forgotten that he had dumped the Diesel out at the deer camp and put gasoline in it.

Long story short: He emptied it on the burn pile and threw a match to it. "BOOM" - - - yuppers, he is lucky to be alive cause when it combusted, it knocked the can out of his hand and put him on the ground.  It burned off his goatie (kinda funny ain't it?) and his eyebrows and fortunately he had sun glasses on so it didn't get his eye lashes or eyes.  WHEW  - Praise the Lord

His nose is burned and his face is parched but he's not in the hospital or morgue and he is so mad at himself but thankful that it wasn't worse.

I asked him if he couldn't tell the difference when he poured it out and he said that he was in such a hurry he never paid any attention - - - - HE WILL FROM NOW ON I'LL BET!

That's one of the reasons that Parents have wrinkles and gray hair and almost panic when the phone rings at an odd hour of the night. Then about the time you think you've got them raised and responsible along comes the Grandbabies and you realize that you have become a "battle hardened veteran" at this stuff. biggrinbiggrinbiggrin
