Almost a catastrophy

Recommended Posts

If you use a Humphrey gas light read this. My buddy who is in a fish house on millacs ( 20 yards from mine ) Woke up because sassy (his yellow lab) was whining at the door to go outside. It was 3:30 am. He lets her out and turns on the gas light til he lets her in. He lays down and accidently falls asleep again. Anyway he wakes up to her barking loudly at the door outside. He looks and sees the wall and ceiling on fire by the gas light! He drowns the fire with multiple scoops of water from a hole. It had already burnt through the paneling on the wall and ceiling. A minute later and He might have been toast. In the morning he comes over to my house and tells me about it. Man I couldnt believe it. He's had a gas light there for years with no problem. I took the wall plate cover off it and I could see where it started at the orfice inside it. I dont know how the flame backed up through the neck and started a fire at the pilot. It goes without saying that Sassy is a hero.

Anyone else ever have a problem like this? I dont think I would consider putting one in my house now.

    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
    • O yes I completely forgot about them and they are practically in my back yard. Thanks.
    • Gotta be frustrating...........head to NY and take 2 of 4 from the Yanks, yet lose two games in the standings. Get in their heads boys. The next 12 games have have yummy written all over them, get to eating.
    • Good win today in the Texas heat, 117 heat index. Perez struggled late but the pen got the job done. Polanco & Gonzalez with 5 of the 6 RBI's.
    • BlackLundProV led the scoring with 319 to get 2nd win. 2--Fishing_Novice         317 3--gregg52                      298 4--mnwildman                279 5--Juneau4                      273 6--icefishinnut                 226 ------------------------------------------------------- Season totals 1--Juneau4                      6969 2--Fishing_Novice          6797 3--gregg52                       6624 4--BlackLundProV           6568 5--icefishinnut                  6488 6--mnwildman                  6427 7--fishingstar                    5187     Don't know for sure, but it appears as if no longer plays.   In 2 weeks it's at Darlington.  🏁

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.
