Can you guess what the above is?
Now can you guess?
It was a fire in the kitchen. I keep Covers on the back burners to keep Bob' s Breakfast Grease off the burners. They were so greasy, I cleaned them and put Tin Foil on them, because I could easily rip it off and throw away.
He makes a terrible mess.
I turned on the front burner to boil eggs and lucky for me did not leave the kitchen, while putting away supplies I smelled HOT and behold the foil was flaming. I turned on the back burner.
Nor the front burner I had the pot of eggs on.
The bacon and sausage grease ignited!
No I did not use the afore mentioned Fire Extinguisher ,
I turned off burner, remove black smoking cast iron griddle, the flames went higher, my heart beat harder and I smothered it with a huge lid, used tongs to pick it up and take out in the yard and say to Bob.
While you and Beau play ball, I am burning the house down!
Just so you know the flames above were added in Lunapic. I did NOT take photos. But I did nearly have a heart attack.
This reminded me of the time our front lawn was not doing well, and I heard that burning off the dead grass would make it grow back really well.
The only thing that happened, is I forgot i had two boys that would walk through the black yard and into the house on carpet....this was 1975ish.
