    Or drunk posting! It's kinda like drunk dialing I guess, not a good idea, but there's always tomorrow to fill in the gaps.

    Got home late, saw nice bed of coals, did not even think about it.....just went to bed! This morning got up to the sound of the furnace, fire was going within 30 min.

    If being drunk and warm is wrong, then I don't want to be right.

    So we went out last night only going to gone a couple hours have a few drinks with the FIL and come home. That didn't quite work which I kind of knew it wouldn't. Stayed out much later and drank more than intended. Got home and I went around back to get some wood got inside forgot to wear gloves and those levers are hot. Then I sat there watching the fire through the open door walked off to pee again the wife shut the door and told I shouldn't mess with the stove when ive been drinking . I have got to get better at putting on gloves when ive been drinking.

    I really enjoyed this post as it reminded me of around 5 years ago. My cousin got married in early October that year, it was an outdoor wedding right out the lane from our house so it was a 4 minute walk across the field. Big top tent, DJ, all the spirits you could possibly want. And as it was almost burning season, I was itchin' to fire up the stove for the first fire of the season. I had the flue swept out good, stove cleaned out, and a load of kindling ready to go in the firebox. Weeell, it got damm cold that night. And I stayed at that reception til' my uncle kicked me out! Well, came home drunk, in my nice black suit, and sat in a plastic chair in the backyard staring at my fluepipe on the house, contemplating building a fire.......

    After throwing up the alcohol I drank that evening in the backyard (sorry for the visual), I proceeded to go in the house and build a fire. Did everything by the book......almost everything.

    As I sat there with the draft open fully, letting it get good and hot, I began to get that 'tired' cozy feeling sitting in front of that fire.....I closed the draft down and that's the last thing I remember.......

    Woke up around 2 hours later, laying RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE STOVE, soaked with sweat in my EXPENSIVE suit....

    Anyway, thank God I closed it down before passing out, I may have ended up a pile of ashes in front of that fireplace..........

    Moral of the story? I don't mess with the stove if I've had too much to drink........

    Back in the seventies the husband of a lady my wife worked with got terminated from his job one afternoon. The guy went home to their megabucks new house and proceeded to get loaded and decided to start a fire in the fireplace. Nobody ever knew exactly what he did but by the time the fire department got it put out the whole end of the house was burned off.
