I have only one burning desire….

…let me stand next to your fire. Those Hendrix lyrics kept coming out of daddy’s mouth the other weekend when we went to papa Dupree’s house and had a bonfire. It was the first one I’ve been to in a long time. The last one I was at was at Tio’s and we almost had to call the fire department for that one. Fortunately, this was better managed than that one. This one, I was also old enough to participate by throwing any piece of wood and just about anything that wasn’t too heavy to lift. It made me feel manly and primal. I even found myself grunting and mesmerized by the flames – I think I devolved back to a caveman for an minute.

I had a blast and it was good family time – can’t wait to do it again. I told mommy and daddy we could do it in our backyard next time. I’ll let you know how that works out.
