Why Are You Proud Of Yourself?

  • My priorities have definitely been realigned this past few months! This is Jamie by the way.

  • Here is what happened… as I was cooking dinner on the grill, with our food was almost done. I went out to retrieve the food off the grill and there was a loose board on the deck under the grill. I stepped on said loose board and u fell with my leg went through the deck and the grill, which thankfully the lid was shut, came flying over on top of me. So quick instincts I grab the grill lid to keep it from falling on me and to save the food. While that happened I had the tongues in my other hand and saved the propane tank, which was spitting our propane, from coming over on top of the grill and the whole thing igniting me, my deck and my family on fire.
