On Friday, Dec. 18 I had invited several old friends to dinner. By old I mean we have known them for over 40 years and yes they are aging very nicely. A lovely vintage sled and ice skates were ready to welcome them to the front porch.
Baby Jesus in the manger gave the reason for the season.
The table was ready to seat all the guests.
The other rooms all sported their best Christmas dress.
The Christmas tree sparkled and set the tone for the season.
The candles all glowed to say glad you could come and sparkle their welcome Everything appeared to well under control.
Then all once in my yard arose such a clatter I ran to the window to see what was the matter. And there I did spy, three fire trucks, 2 police cars, and my garden shed all afire.
So today this is what I have left of my gardening equipment.
The shed still has it's doors and side wall. You can see the back of the shed is completely gone and the firemen tore the roof off to contain the fire.
The good thing is it wasn't my home. No one was injured fighting the fire and the shed just contained things. I still had good friends for company and a nice dinner waiting.
