Well, to be honest with you, I was only joking about a commercial with Ridgid! I was trying to make light of the situation, but, in all honesty, I believe that Ridgid Lithium battery was merely seconds away from becoming a lethal bomb if the fire had reached the battery! So no commercial for sure due to the severity of situation!

You never know - I think a commercial could be in the works. It says a lot for the durability of their product that the drill still works!!! I wonder who would pprtray you?

I am amazed that you did not lose your truck, let alone the bees! You fingers look soooo painful. I hope you are careful since I understand the worst danger in burns is infection afterwards.

From now on, carry a metal bucket with sand for the smoker. And probably 2 fire extinguishers! Ooh, and were you wearing your mask when the fire truck pulled up? You don't want to get reported to Newsom for failing to follow his social distancing rules! LOL

Good luck on the hand.

Hi Ridgetop!

Yes, I promised myself to NEVER again be careless with the smokers...so...

We automatically place the smoker EVERY TIME into a steel bucket with a sealed lid. And my wife gets on my case if I forget or let up on the watchfulness.

No mask...and as for Newsom...sometimes I wish someone would put a swarm of angry aggressive honeybees down his pants on a day when he doesn't wear his liberal underwear!

Finally, who should play my part in a commercial? I thought long and hard about it...and I would choose Tom Hanks dressed up like Forest Gump!
