The House Where John Lives

This is the house where John lives.



This is the backyard of the house where John lives.




This is the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.




This is the new fire pit that John built on the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.



This is the trash can where John put his ash after having a fire in the new fire pit on the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.



This is the garden hose that John used to put out the fire in the trash can where John put his ash after having a fire in the new fire pit on the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.



This is what is left of the trash can after using the garden hose to put out the fire in the trash can where John put his ash after having a fire in the new fire pit on the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.




This is proof that, even after the fire in the fire pit has been out for 24 hours, it is not safe to put ash in the trash can after having a fire in the new fire pit on the patio in the backyard of the house where John lives.

Oops. There's a lesson there.

And that's why our ashes stay in the pit for a week. Then I still douse them and then throw them on the bulbs.

John did a great job on the fire pit...and a job on the trash can! :)

That was the first thing that came to my mind after your story!!
How much does it cost to replace a garbage can?

Genious John! Well done. I hope the boys at least got to witness the confusion and chaos and panic.

A friend of mine did this with his shopvac with his fireplace. Turns out fires like air and a shopvac provides plenty of fanning for what appeared to be dormant coals.

That is certainly a lesson to learn. Who knew? I guess he won't try that again. By the way, I really like your patio.
