Hoo Hoo Bird

The Hoo Hoo Bird coo'd and hoo'd to us while we roasted our hot dogs and toasted our jumbo marshmallows the other day. S/He has taken a liking to the fir tree near our fire pit. The tree that is still waiting for me, the wind or a much larger bird to finish topping.

One thing I've learned through many decades of trying to do otherwise is that dry wood makes the best cooking fires and takes less propane to get started.

Perhaps the Hoo Hoo bird was celebrating my decision not to use green wood this time.
