    With temperatures going down to around 40, couldn't resist firing up the liberty . I'm just like a little kid on Christmas morning==c

    Nice. I can't wait to light up. Trying to be patient as I don't have an overly large wood pile this year.

    Same here, Lopi! Kids were mega-excited (yes, I'm one of the "kids" 'round here!), so we built a little one this evening. Gonna have to crack the windows later!

    Shouldn't there be a dog or cat passed out on the floor in front of the stove?

    Hey, stop rushing winter and the cold weather. I have 2 more weeks at the shore before I head to the mountains and my wood burner.

    Me too me too==c. As for the shore, I have absolutely no desire or will ever have any desire to go to any beach again. If I want to see water, I just walk out my front door and across the road and look at New Creek. I am very satisfied right here in the WV mountains(well actually I live in the valley).

    I like going to the shore once a year, for a week, with the family. The kids and wife love it there. I like it OK, but I'd much rather be in the mountains. To me, a nice week-long vacay would be a trip to the mountains of Alaska in autumn.....that'd be as close to heaven on earth as I think I could get......==c

    I love the mountains, forests, rivers and streams of Tennessee, but nothing on earth can match the sheer magnitude and power of the ocean. I guess it all depends on what you are use to. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I'm looking forward to first fire. It's probably 3-4 weeks out though. I need to stop by and pick up a box of Super Cedars from Thomas. The box I bought in 2010 is getting low. It would've lasted longer but I've given quite a few away to friends and family.

    I lit off a small fire today, not that it was really needed, but it helped burn down the mound of pistachio shells that had accumulated over the summer.

    Scotty, that's a very handsome setup you got there. I can see why you would be eager to fire her up. :)

    Yes, I sure have BB. Thanks for the compliments guys.
    I just walked in there to look at the fire and mum is passed out on the couch.....kids are all heaped up right beside her. That makes all the work worthwhile.....
