Thanksgiving Wyoming Style

For Thanksgiving, Bear and I headed to Casper, Wyoming, where we had a yummy dinner with his little brother Cody and wife Melanie. Afterwards, we made our way to his Mom's house in Worland. The best thing about Thanksgiving in the country is they're not going to call the cops on you for starting a fire. Although, this fire was so big, maybe they should have! I didn't get any pictures of the fire at its biggest. I was too afraid of missing all the fireworks, if the power lines way, way overhead and to the left caught on fire. Apparently so were the neighbors, who came a runnin' to see if we needed their hose. From their window it looked like the house was on fire. All this took place as Bear assured everyone that the fire was under control and continued to add more wood and leaves. 98% of lefties are pyros. It's a fact. I read it on Wikipedia.

My best theatrical/unpolitically correct interpretation of what happens when you do not share your pie with the Natives.

I know what you mean about being able to build a fire and not have the cops or fire department called. I answered my door a couple of years ago to the fire department....someone had called and reported a fire..It was my husband burning in his fire pit...I might add the fire was a little large. Now whenever we have a small fire we have to let
them know that we are having one. I grew up where we had fires all the time. My brothers were especially good at burning things down they weren't supposed too. Living in the country does have some advantages. I am so glad that your sister is okay too & I can't believe that everyone's car got damaged except for the one who caused it. Accidents do happen though...speaking from experience. I missed seeing you when I visited your primary last week - I am in the Stake primary now - hope to see you around....have a good day!

What edition of Wikipedia is your computer using... as I have not been able to find that in my Wikipedia nor in

I only check because with your father being a lefty, and Shane also being one, I may need to watch them more closely.

In fact, the only one setting fires lately seems to be Ben who keeps catching the outside porch ashtray on fire.. and he's a righty.

That looks fun! We too had the fire dept. called on us for a fire pit fire (in the big city). My inlaws in Idaho burn their weeds all of the time. It's amazing what you can get away with in the country.

Your husband sounds super fun too.
