2009 Homecoming Bonfire -
Let's get this party started!
That's what I'm talking about!!!!
It took about 20 minutes to get the fire lit. Only the firemen are allowed to light it and the kids are not allowed to use an accelerants when building the fire.
I wonder why? Could it be that when Trammell was the Bonfire Chairman, they did used a little gasoline to ensure a quick start and the principal lit the fire and singed off his eyebrows and arm hair? Sometimes adults ruin all the fun!
PS - Come back for parade pictures. It's going to be a long day in Crazyville. Some children came home from finishing their floats at 2 am to START homework. A certain child is missing 3rd period today. Is he missing it to come home and sleep? Is he missing it to finish the homework he didn't get done? Nope. He's going to attach the rest of the branches to the tree. Evidently, the tree is too big to assemble in the garage that the float is housed in. And we have our priorities.
