A Fireplace Moment
A fireplace was not a 'must have' when house shopping. My general impression; they were messy and an added chore. I didn't mind the smokey smell and under someone else's care, were comforting and romantic but the upkeep outweighed the positive aspects for me.
Our first Texas home just happened to have a fireplace. It was large, well built, a gas starter with a clean out built into the bottom that was accessed through a chute located on the patio.
I fell in love with the fireplace.
I became a master fire-starter.
In our second Texas home there just happened to be a fireplace, smaller, with a gas starter but no clean out chute. Oh whoa, my disappoinment was minimial, my love for the warmth and comfort was not diminished by the extra upkeep.
In the time honored tradition of CBS Sunday Morning News - Moments of Nature I want to leave you with a warm Fireplace Moment. Enjoy. (Filmed on Super Bowl Weekend)
