    It’s almost time for block party bean soup and bleenies. Maybe he was getting the fire pit ready? Maybe it was for a youth sports bonfire? I just have a hard time believing he was up to no good. Skooks are really intelligent people, i’m tellin ya. We might like long walks and passionate coaching, but I don’t think we even need a prison here

    Assault charges ?
    For what, attacking a campfire ring !
    Good thing he didn’t split some wood, or he would have have been charged with murder.

      If the campfire ring was in her yard, yes that would be trespassing and assault no? Nobody has business in my yard without being asked to be!
