Our new firepit



Curtis and Shandy came up this weekend. If you check their blog you'll know they made a firepit in their backyard. So we decided to do the same thing. Jon found us an old tire rim at a tire store and we already had the brick (also previously supplied by Jon - what would we do without him?). Darren hurt his ankle and couldn't walk very well so Curtis ended up doing most of it on his own. Thank you so much, Curtis. I am sure it is something we will enjoy for a long time. I forgot to get a picture of the finished product. But make sure you read the blog right below this to see what happened next.

People have to be careful coming to visit you. You put them to work...

P.S. I'm glad you got the fire put out so I still have a place to live!!

Hummmm.... Tracie you have a good point! Thanks for being a good brother Curtis and helping out Darren and Susan.

What happened to Darren's foot?

Don't worry, I whine too much, they don't want my help.

The fire pit pictures caught my eye...so what all do you do? Looks like you round up an old tire rim, bricks, etc. Do you need to put mortar between the bricks or what? Looks pretty easy and something I want to do in our back yard...
Would someone email me and clue me in? Great idea..
