Ouch, apparently gasoline vapor, a spark, my arm and my leg do not make good companions. Nice 2nd degree burns. With all the bandages I look like a gas victim from the Western front. Oh well, at least whiskey keeps the pain down.

I suspect that your arm and leg make reasonably good companions. Adding gasoline vapor to the mix? Not so much. Take care and recover soon.

My Mama told me not to look into the eyes of the sun.
But, Mama. That's where the fun is!

She also told me not to set myself on fire, and I have no answer for that.

Give a man a fire and he will be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he will be warm the rest of his life.

Go on, I'll bite. Talk us through it.

First lesson on setting a fire, never use gasoline/petrol, always diesel.

Ever seen the scene when the bloke pours petrol in a room then tosses in a lighter… that ain't real. TV & Movies have much to answer for.

Bandages finally off! An interesting experience to be sure. No mommy, I will not play with fire anymore. Maybe I attempt drowning next?
