Perfect day! Enjoy your first fire! Still to warm in NC to enjoy one yet.

What better way to end a day of corn-gathering and squirrel-vignetting than to sit infront of fire getting completely sozzled on Punkin beer:) Cheers.

I'm afraid we have 35º in Jerez, my city. On the other hand we haven't got fireplace and we haven't a dead squirrel but we have a skull so in novembER I will make something with it. I envy your habits perhaps because I've watched lots of american movies when I was a child. thanks for sharing your life.

We're still trying to have outdoor fires - I think we're in denial that it's indoor fire weather. But since it's going down to freezing tonight maybe it's time.

By the way, we have a rat we put out each year - it's a plastic one unlike your mummified squirrel. But still scary.

Have a good Sunday.

Wishing you many more lovely fires...
