here today, gone tomorrow

Now, the spot looks so blank.

A company out of West Moreland, TN came to take it down. They took all the wood they could salvage and the rest, which was just a flat pancake, was burned.

And, not unlike other guys, Greg loves watching things burn. He even got a couple college students from church to camp out with him and watch the fire that night. Those boys stayed until about 6:00am the next morning but Greg came home at 1:00, and it was evident from the smell.

The interesting thing about this fire, was that the tin roof was put over top of it, so it burned very very hot. Much to the boys' dismay, they had a hard time finding a cool enough spot to roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

The wood that was salvaged is going to be used by St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville plus we saved some wood to use as accents in our house. Originally, we thought we could salvage enough to do our floors, but it just wouldn't have worked out as there were too many different species of wood and whatnot.

Tomorrow, Greg and I leave for a 3 day trip to NYC, so I'll resume posting this weekend.
