My husband is a pyromaniac...

Yesterday looked like the begining of Spring. Warm, sunny, nice. To help green up the place, my husband lit the yard on fire. Today, there is snow on the ground, a reminder that Spring has not yet sprung. This is kind of like washing your car to ensure rain the next day (or in my case, later that evening). Light the yard on fire, another month of winter ahead, guaranteed. *sigh*

And my eyebrows still itch. I'm beginning to think it's just stress. I suppose there are worse ways for stress to manifest itself, but still...

Your way with words on this incident is hilarious :-)

A teeny bit of Gold Bond Powder on the eyebrows? Just DON'T get it in your eyes.

Yeah, what is it with guys and burning stuff? My kids could only get into cleaning out our old house when I told them they could light the junk on fire. Then I had to make sure everything didn't get cleaned out.

(How about a Benadryl liquid? It works on bee stings and that rash tomato plants give you.)

Don, isn't that used for "jock itch?" Perfect. Think I'll get me some. 8-}

Sisiggy, my husband is a pack rat until it comes time to burn stuff. We once burned up his entire collection of old doors and windows (collected from job sites because, he said I might want to do something with them). But the old kitchen sink still sits at the bottom of the "BBQ" pit because, you know, cast iron doesn't burn much. And I'm sure he is partially responsible for the loss of ozone layer when he set the old couch on fire.

If the jock itch powder doesn't work, I'll try some Benadryl lotion, but I really need to get at the root of the problem, which I'm sure has something to do with the anti-aging potions. ;-)

Cool pics :) you;ve captured the flames well!

Weather can be so fickle but doing something like washing the car, hanging out washing or burning the yard is definitely like a rain dance (or snow!).

Hope you sort that itch problem out soon. If it is stress then perhaps you need to be spoilt a little ? :)

Hey, controlled burning is a good idea...pretty fun too, I imagine. :)
