How to clean a fence row and turn boys to men.
Then have the boys pile them in big piles.
The bigger the pile, the better.
Make sure you add several varmint cedar trees to the top of the pile and leave a couple of stumps or a big log nearby for seating.
Wait for a calm day, with little or no wind, throw some kerosene on the pile, light a match and step back!
You have two options if this happens – you could grab the chainsaw, climb the tree holding the chainsaw (remember the Tarzan practice) and cut off said limbs.
Or – you can have the boys stand near the trees with their super squirter squirt guns and put out the fire.
Do not do them both at the same time.
Using rakes, pitchforks and shovels, show the boys how to put out any grass fires that start from the sparks of the bonfire.
For added excitement – light two or more burn piles at the same time at different places in the pasture. This increases your cardio-vascular work-out as you run from pile to pile.
Then, when the fires have settled down, sit down on the logs or stumps with your boys and watch them burn as the sun sets, enjoying the satisfaction and pride of a job well done.
