The other night, Jason cranked up the BBQ to grill some steaks. As he headed back into the house, he smelled a... grass fire?!?!? He promptly opened the BBQ and found a pile of dry grass. Ack! (This is why you should always open the lid BEFORE lighting the BBQ) Anyhow, he turned off the gas, called the kids, and began chewing out all the potential offenders. Really. Why would anyone put grass into the BBQ?
Any guesses? Me neither...
It wasn't a child's handiwork. It was a bird's. Yikes!!!! There's a nice little nest in there. At the time, there were 2 eggs. We're hoping that the brief increase in room temperature did no harm. As of this morning, there are 5 eggs.
Jason looked it up on-line and apparently they have about a two week incubation. Seems we won't be BBQing for a while!
