I finished work around 5:30.. and immediately got lazy.. diane was lazy too.. we talked about going for a run, taking a walk, going canoeing, or going for a bike ride. In the end we decided to do nothing of the sort.. we plopped down on the couch and watched netflix. We’ve just gotten hooked on a show (dirty, sexy money.. a realllly stupid drama/comedy from 2009-10).. this is the first time I’ve ever watched a series online.. and its evil.. I’ve always prided myself for not having a tv.. but this is far worse)

Luckily, something saved us. Chris and Kim called to ask if we wanted to come over and shoot flaming arrows at a wooden man full of gunpowder and covered with gasoline.. Who WOULDN’T want to do that ?!?!

It’s harder than it sounds.. Chris wrapped the arrows with paraffin soaked cheese cloth.. but even those are hard to stay lit..

here’s smoke from Chris’s cigarette getting caught by the flash.. I see ‘S’ ‘A’ ‘M’ do you ?

here’s the basic idea..

I finally landed one near enough the flammables…


not a bad way to spend a summer eevening..


OK.. bed calss..

nite all, nite sam
