Did Shrek help? That is one of the good things about country living. Neighbors (and strangers) helping neighbors.

Early in the morning and I am sitting at the computer. The window wide open and the cold wind blowing in. I will not shut the window. I will not shut the window. As soon as I stop shivering enough I am getting up to close the window some. I have a sweater on along with a fleece blanket wrapped around me. I need to put the oven on and get back in bed where I am snuggly warm.

But I have to start working on my grocery list.

Horse, cow and chicken...yes, on the hoof. We saved all the livestock in the fire's path. I'm headed back to work for a half day, at least, we'll see what today brings. Shrek said I smelled good...but he was half asleep and I'd already had a shower.

Nope, he can't help, his health is too bad. The smoke alone would have put him in the hospital. He had my hiking clothes and equipment all set out and ready.

Good stuff, PF, so glad to hear! When my dad was volunteer fire chief, he'd get home after a fire, and Baby Bro would tell him he smelled like bacon. Did you smell like bacon?

You'd have to ask one. Bet they would!

We had a brief thundershower. Now the sun's out, and it's a gorgeous 75F here along the river.
