 Great fire pictures MordecaiCourage, my father was a Forrest Fire Warden and I spent a large part of my youth fighting forrest fires in Southern Illinois and doing the Smokey Bear thing.  Wound up being a fire photographer for my father, many of the pictures wound up in a slide show that made the county fair circuit in Illinois for a few years.
 
Not much liquids...did see oil burning across water near an oil well...more of the trees, brush, corn and bean field type of thing.

Thanks Chuck. Forest fires are much more difficult to fight than hydrocarbon fuel fires. You know what you have with a fuel fire, with wildland fires...anything can happen. Heck, they create their own wind!!
 
Anyway...here's another work picture for you all.  

The answer is YES it does get hot in that get-up! (Especially during a Texas summer)
 
Edit:  wow   that's a big picture

That's probably the Minnesota boy Larsen behind me on his way to passing out in the Texas heat. Though I imagine his story would be that he's passing out because he had to carry me!

By the way, get a load of the t-shirt I am wearing in both of the pictures: "the originial 'the Gridiron'/FFPro.com t"! I actually gave one to John! It was wild seeing him departing the Monday night pre-game party (where the picture above was taken) carrying it! I have a picture of that. I'll try to remember to scan it in next time.

I just gotta tell you all...I'm beaming right now. This is my first year having a son play for his school in any sport. Up until now, it's always been Little League or Church league or something like that. This is great stuff...watched my boy (#10) run two QB keepers around the right end untouched for TD's in their first scrimmage game of the season. Can't wait till next weeks regular season opener!! Check out his old school lineman's face mask..lol. Anyone else get to experience this joy?

I thought maybe that was an old photo of Peyton Manning! You must be quite proud Ken.
 
My 4-year old had his first experience of organized athletics last Saturday as he had his first soccer practice. It's a 3-4 year-old league where they mostly learn some skills and socialize and play--very low pressure. My son got there and wondered why all the kids were so little (he's extraordinarily tall for a 4-year old). Then once practice started, he proceeded to cry and pout during every drill and exercise. I ended up learning more about soccer than he did as I was dribbling the ball up and down the field while holding his hand. A couple times at the end he forgot to be shy and upset and got into the game and his athletic skills were so much more pronounced than all the other kids there. Now if we could just get his head to work the way we want it to.

Very Cool. I have two sons who went through youth football. At one time they both played on the thirty-four league. Thats a fancy way of saying the 3rd and fourth grade team. Now Andy was a 4th grader. Due to a funky thiroid, he has some size to him. He played on the o-line. Right up front. He would blow mammoth holes to run through. James was a young third grader at the time. Small kid too. Razor thin. Being a young third grader meant he was almost a full year behind everyone else. You know what I mean. That horrible sporting birthday date. Anyway, It was the first day of practice. Keep in mind that the coach had been there for several years. The 4th graders had the reutine down pat. The first play they are walking through is a running play ,Left, off tackle. James is the wide receiver on the right side. His job on the play was to get in the way of the trailing linebacker. After they walk through the play about three times they run it at full speed. Everytime they walked through it, the back went through the whole created by Andy while James walked in front of the line backer. Remember, this is the first practice and the kids really want to hit someone. Most noteably the 4th graders. So they run this play at full speed and everything starts perfectly. Andy opens the hole. The back goes through it. James looks for the linebacker and .....Thats where the trouble began. The defensive end. The 6 foot tall 4th grade End was looking to hit someone. He targeted the smallest guy on the field. James. Way away from the ball and way out of position, The D-end left his feet. James didnt see him and blammo! After about 5 minutes James got up. The coach made the D-end run full pad and helmet laps around the field for about an hour. That was James first and last play in organized football. He wanted nothing else to do with it. Cant say that I blame him.

My 12 year old (on the right) is 5' 6" tall. Pretty tall for a 7th grader I think. He is a left handed QB........I'll give you one guess who guards his blind side? Hint: He is a 6' 1" 215 lb. 7th grader who blows holes in the right side of the line the size of Manhatten! Can you blame the coach if 98% of all plays they run go right!!! Kid looks like a man out there amongst the boys. I heard they fly him in for the games.

Good shot of my son pitching out...but what I want you to focus on is the behemoth I was talking about earlier. Look to the far left at the coach on the sideline....the manchild is behind him...lol

mmmmmmmmmm...I'm suddenly hungry for chicken wings!   Don't be or Steve, of course I'd never eat you're little one. Does it have a cousin?
 
This is my prediction of Stegger when his little guy/gal decides to fly away..... Don't worry Steg...just know you've raised him/her right, you've taught him/her everything he/she needs to know in life, trust that the little one will make all the right decisions. Most importantly, make sure he/she knows that he/she can always come to you if times are tough.

Make sure you use gloves when cleaning up and wash your hands well after handling the bird. There is a lot of bad stuff in wild bird feces.

At this point, his system is pretty much cleaned out of whatever the hell else was in there.  Unless birds' digestive systems produce toxins naturally, it's pretty much just Gerber's and bread comin' out at this point.  But, thanks for the heads up, sk!
