Saturday morning I decided I’d get to work on eradicating the dandelions in our beautiful bright yellow back yard. I love the colour yellow, but enough is enough. So, when the hardware store opened I went over and grabbed a dandelion bar.
After mowing the yard I got my bar all ready and made the rounds, up and down, back and forth. Max looked at me like I was kind of nuts. He’d never seen me do that before. Now, I’ll just wait and see how things work out.
Then, that night, we were all set to barbeque up some nice thick pork chops with baked potatoes. A great way to celebrate the impending doom of the dandelions! We got the potatoes all cut up and wrapped and threw them on the barbeque. After that I was in the kitchen preparing the mouth watering pork chops. This was one barbeque I was looking very forward to.
We were sitting on the deck when my wife noticed the thermometer on the barbeque was at zero, which was odd considering I turned it on a good 45 minutes earlier. I had a look and she was right, there was no heat at all, and for good reason. My propane tank was bone dry. The worst part was, it was after 6 and the hardware store, where I get my propane from, was closed. Great!
I certainly wasn’t going to drive around the city to get some more propane, so there was only one alternative. We ended up transferring the potatoes to the oven and my wife fried up the chops on the stove.
It wasn’t the barbeque I was hoping for, but it wasn’t bad at all!
My first stop yesterday morning was the hardware store where I replenished my supply of propane. Bring on the next barbeque!
