Burning sticks is interesting when you have a Golden Retriever nearby.
She’s always trying to help Papa. Unfortunately she was trying to help Papa by bringing Papa the sticks he dropped in that big smokey pile… Even when Papa goes inside.
I happened to glance out the window to see a branch (about the size of your arm) on our wooden deck, merrily burning away, leaving a nice scorch mark for me to worry about. The scorch mark matches the burned hole in our yard where she dropped the other burning branch…
