Miss Gracie wondering what is going on!! Fire

I will delete these after a couple of days. We were very lucky! The fire trucks did come out early Saturday morning. Gary was going to go to Promise Keepers that morning but I left a note saying that it would be pretty scary if the fire came on our land. The fire department would have had to open the front gate and Miss Gracie and Harley would get out! For once he listened to me and stayed home. It was real wet Saturday morning. If the huge cedar trees would have caught on fire they would have gone up like a bomb!! There is a big row of cedar trees near my neighbor's house! It would not have been too bad for us; but it could have set 2 neighbor's homes on fire. We have had so many fires in Kansas that they have decided to regulate them... thank goodness. Our neighbor set our field and 2 other neighbor's fields on fire twice. Fire trucks came out and the neighbor could not even be found!! The first time he set fire to our field... and his did not even burn... our dog let us know that it was on fire!! He set it on fire 10 minutes before we were leaving for church. I actually think he was planning on burning us out! He was crazy! Him and his wife got a divorce and they are having to sell the place.

Isn't there a law that if you are going to burn, you have to watch over it? Even then, it isn't always safe..

I'm glad you are safe Janie. On the way to the ranch we see about seven different places on the side of the road that has burned. Looks like someone just drove down and threw a cigarette or match out every so often. I think your daughter has your neighbor pegged. Yes I think so a dingbat fits him.
