Glad all is well there. Been on The Yerian's butt to keep the house keeping up! Did I hear you say fishing, as in Tenkara? When you get back let's "hook up" and wet the lines Jim.

My bet is Mr. Donini did a little more fire fighting than he is letting on!

Glad you are both okay and were able to save your home.

Have you thought of building a defensible area around the home?

Ringed around Donini's house
The fire chased the Yanqui
Our hero thought none of it fun
"Whew," goes Donini.

Ashes, ashes,
Don't fall down.

Nice catch, Jim!

God loves ya!

Scary stuff, faced quite a bit of that with my career.

Never had to defend my own home, can only image the thoughts going through your mind.

Glad you and your home stayed safe.

Just got into Chile Chico a 100 K from the house. Went climbing at La Pyramide while the hot spots were put out. Should be able to move back in tomorrow....will keep you posted.

Everything is okay Lynne.

Yes Guido.....Lito's place is 1 K away, he's fine.
