Our Sons Tree House
When my sons were pre-teens, they decided to build a tree house. Not knowing quite how to build a tree house, the just started nailing boards together in a ship shod fshion. it becae sort of a square box, but it was their new home. The steps to get down from their house we were glad they were not to heavy or the would surely have landed on the ground. Their carpenter skills were not so great. Unbeknown to me they wanted to have electricity. They strung a long cord from our work shop to their home and hung it on the wall.
The End of the Tree House
They decided to leave the tree house one day and left the light burning and the hot bulb was against the wall of their house. I was in the kitchen and the phone rang. A neighbor called and said our chicken house was on fire. i said I did not have a chicken house. They said what ever it is it is on fire. Shortly we had two fire trucks in our yard. One truck soon left and the other stayed. After a while when all the fire was out and safe, the other truck started to leave and it got stuck in the mud and they had to call the other truck back to pull it out.
