There's FIRE down below....

We had some excitement around our place on Thursday! Carol had just gotten out of the shower when the doorbell rang. It was our next door neighbor who said, "Did you know our fence is on fire?" Well, needless to say, Carol rushed out onto the deck and, sure enough, it was!

The fire department came and put it out. Apparently it was two pre-adolescent boys playing with firecrackers. The house you can see in this picture from the newspaper is ours... and the empty panel in the vinyl fence is on our side of the fenceline. Sigh. If it isn't one thing, it's another.

And if you were wondering... no, that's not Carol in the picture. It's the neighbor and her niece.
