Burn Day

We had some nice warm weather on Saturday, so the People decided to proclaim it "Burn Day" and burn all of our nasty rotten wood that has been sitting in a pile for pugness knows how long. The People made a burn pile in the garden so the ash will help nourish the soil and also soften the soil to make digging easier. They also started preparing the garden for planting in March. Woman says they got one of the beds ready for planting and have three more left. They got tired after 4 1/2 hours and had to stop. What sissies.

I was bored most of the time, but Woman got a couple laughs from me. At one point I was napping under a tree with my head resting on a root. She said it was mega-cute. I was also sitting stoically keeping guard over the garden while the People labored away. I am Management. I don't actually *do* the work. I just make sure the People do the work properly.

The People were so tired that night that we just laid around and watched tv. Score one for the puggy! I was kind of ticked to be smelling like a campfire, but at least I got some good snuggle time.

    I love the smell of burning wood. Well, like fireplace wood and such, not houses.

    Norman, you could get a job on a road crew down here...one person working and three folks standing around leaning on their shovels watching the one working.

    Burn day..interesting idea for sure. We are not allowed to do any "burning" unless you own 5 or more acres of land!
