    Default Hi there :)

    Hi I'm Marsha. After poking around on this site for a while, I thought I would join. I'm not a firefighter or anything like that. I did put out a box of flaming crayons once, but somehow I don't think that qualifies

    I'm from Tennessee, and 26 years old.

    I guess that about covers it

    Box of crayons huh? Sounds like you have the fire bug already! LOL! Welcome to the land of folks whose wives and girlfriends think they're crazy (least mine does)

    Welcome from Ontario Canada.


    Crayon Box.. Fire must have been intense!
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Thanks much for the welcome.

    It wasn't too big of a fire. But it was starting to get a bit out of hand -- especially since it was on the kitchen table, in a cheap pie pan. Then mom, being the uber-genious that she is, put it out by putting it in the sink. Ok, refresher course: oil based crayons + water = uh oh. She WAS NOT amused. I am sure I got spanked over that. But I can't remember. Perhaps that's a bad sign

    No, y'all aren't crazy. Ok, you are. But it's a good kind of crazy. It's the "somebody's gotta do it cause I'm sure not gonna" kind. But no...crazy is the person who's last words are "Y'all get a load of this" moments before the FD has to be called.

    I've been to Ohio and Canada (just to Sault Ste Marie), but I've never been to Alabama. I'm sure I'll go one of these days. When I get more of that mysterious green paper. They call it "money". I'm not sure. I don't see enough of it to know for certain or not

    Thanks, bdunndchi

    And Two7, I won't tell if you won't

    We actually were planning a trip, I think, to Lake Superior State Provincial Park. Until we got the info on it. During that time of year (August) it gets down to freezing at night. And we'd have to boil the water, else we could get "beaver fever" and even. I mean, the weather I can understand. But I don't feel like contracting that sort of ailment. It's just too...too...well. I just won't touch that one.
