Delightful Surprises

      Even in Ferguson, Jon and the boys, and often just Josiah, have campfires in our backyard. They save branches and limbs and even collect firewood from yard clean ups so that they have a hearty supply always ready for use. Today Josiah was a cowboy. He heated chili right in the can, just like a cowboy on the trail, and had hot chocolate for his coffee. What a grand time he had. Earlier he was a Civil War soldier, warming himself by the fire. Several weeks ago, Jon and Josiah sat around the fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, smiling and stoking the fire all evening long. Do not think because you are in the city that you do not have room for a campfire. Just find a place away from the house and away from anything that could catch on fire and keep a hose handy.
