The world's largest firefighter instructor conference is going on in Indy this week.

I have squirrel friends (not from my squirrel tree, but another) that are here for this all week, on their own time and dollar.  Their current job description isn't firefighter, but it's a skill set they have much experience in, and wish to maintain, even if at the volunteer level, now or in the future.

So the Range d'Crash Pad is acting as temporary housing, food, and friendship for such folks this week and weekend.  Partner knows I'd take a bullet for them (literally and figuratively) so an extra bedroom or couch and plenty of food is easy. 

I'll be back this week with a saved post or two.  But rest assured, if tonight, I manage to explode the gravy (seriously, who knew beef gravy was binary) AND catch the oven mitt on fire (again), I'm likely in good hands.
