Deep thoughts...

Post  BackyardBirdGardner on 3/6/2011, 7:45 pm

I have just reached a conclusion I have been theorizing and working on for years....

There really is no such thing as the "upwind side of a BBQ grill." No matter where I stand, no matter the wind direction, I get the smoke in the eyes.

Oh, and no matter which neighbor on which side of me is grilling on the nights I am not....I can smell it. Further proof, you can only stand downwind of a BBQ...not upwind.

That's what I think about campfires and our back yard fire pit as well. LOL

And I love you, every one!

Now... Back to my seed list, or the gardening season will be over and I won't have ordered the first seed. I'm soooo late.

@ Patty.....I wish. But, that gave me a warm fuzzy.

@ Jennie.... When around campfires, we boy scouts used to say, "rabbits, rabbits, I hate rabbits....because they stink." And, for some reason the smoke temporarily changed directions on point. Just try it. It was super weird to us.

But, we also used to play "Fiber Football." So, after reading this tidbit take note you are listening to a formerly, and severely, "drain bamaged" (Bill Cosby quote) former teen. Hot pads and hot coals out in a field at night. Imagine if you will a group of idiot teenagers chucking hot coals 20 yards across a field and trying to tackle each other in the dark. The only thing you saw was the orange glow of the hot coal when it was airborn. Ahhh, memories.

It's a wonder no one was ever hurt doing that. But, I guess God wanted to punish us with teenagers of our own? LOL.
