It's That Time of Year Again !
YES, WE'RE CLOSING IN ON THE SEASON where daring chefs burn down their garages and, in some cases, their entire homes. Hospital emergency rooms are stocking up on sterile gauze and plastic surgeons are put on speed-dial. It's time to fire up the turkey fryer!
You know the time is here if you saw this first-out-of-the-gate report from Associated Press last week when, while reporting on the mountain snowfalls generated by Hurricane Sandy, they posted a story that starts out:
2 feet of snow fell in Terra Alta, West Virginia. ''We are seriously using a turkey fryer to keep our bedroom warm enough to live and a Coleman stove in our bedroom to heat up cans of soup,'' resident Carrie Luckel said. ''Our milk is sitting on the roof.''
Firegeezer News Service is activated and ready for three weeks of action. Stay tuned, it's off to a good start.
