p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · #109 Celebration equals Conflagration


Eighty one candles, one for each year of my life could have easily been a funeral pyre. But quick thinking and a call to my alarm system monitor lady, assuring her I had every thing under control and she didn't need to call the fire department saved the day. OK, maybe I exaggerate a wee bit

Thanks Birdie,

The only fallout from this was that the tablecloth, a hand-woven gift from a long-time, now deceased friend got hot wax on it and now is in the cleaners. I think it will be OK.

Thanks Norm, Somehow I wasn't in the mood for cake. It must have been heat exhaustion.

T hanks OldRattler, No but I just about burnt my fingers trying to light all those candles before the smoke alarm would have gone off.

you need a bigger cake!

We put 95 on a big cake for my grandmother a few years ago, and nearly needed the fire extinguiser...about 80 of those candles merged into one flame...

Travis, The same happened with this one. I had wax candle numerals 81 in the center. They caught fire when I was about half done.
