Deltaville has always been an excellent place for a campfire or bonfire. Once Pepop opted to use gasoline to get a large brush pile going. I think there was some singeing of eyebrows, and I was certain Smokey the Bear was going to show up and tell him he should know better and only he could prevent forest fires (I was secretly hoping Smokey would show up because I was in love with Smokey the Bear, and Chewbacca... it's a hairy guy thing, you wouldn't understand).
Nowadays, we have smaller burn piles that are comfortable enough to sit around sipping wine or listening to music or listening to the sounds of nature. And I can spend hours staring into a fire and watching it lick the wood.
