No, it isn’t a terrorist plot, nor a dire food warning! Just ‘one of those things’ that happen along the road of life.

At a family cook out many summers ago, my dad and his brother grilled hotdogs. We kids were too busy to eat them at the time so they considerately wrapped them in foil wrap and set them aside. Waiting for us young ‘un’s to decide to eat.

After a good while of playing in water, on swings and other such things, we kids returned to the picnic table, ready to eat. One of the elders set the foil wrapped packet on the grill to warm. It was not long until steam built up in the package, which popped open sending the now warm dogs flying in every direction!

It was a memorable moment, one later relived with laughter and fond memories of days gone by.
