An Idiots' Guide To Backyard Fun


Out in suburbia, it was time to embark upon the lawn work and start up the grill.

Here's some gardening advice. If you you are going to use a weed wacker, don't do it barefoot. Because I did and when the wire that decapitates weeds, twigs and branches comes into contact with an unclod appendage, much pain and blood results.

And when firing up the propane grill, it's always a good idea to check to make sure the hoses are still in good shape. Which, I did not do. And which resulted in the entire grill being engulfed in flame. Luckily the propane tank didn't blow, but I will be at the Home Depot this weekend buying another grill. If anyone is interested in a "modern art" sculpture of melted plastic and metal, well, c'mon over.

It's that time of year. Friends of mine torched their terrace last weekend.

Still, look on the bright side, I bet the burgers were done?
