Red face Don't Play with Hammers

California's Largest Fire Started by Hammering a Stake.
First he tried to shovel dirt on the fire to smother it, but within moments, the fire had spread to his 60-by-12-foot shade cloth. He tried to smother that with a trampoline but that burned too.
He then tried to use water from the water tank to douse the fire, but the polyurethane tubing became “kinked from the heat of the fire and restricted the water flow,” the report said.From there, he “then tried to use a 1˝-inch PVC water line connected to the water tanks, but was unable to get enough water pressure to reach the fire.”So finally, he jumped in his four-wheeler and tried to get in front of the fire traveling uphill, so he could kick dirt on it with his tires, but in the process, “he lost control of his four-wheeler and had to jump off.”

Yes, hammers in the wrong hands can be dangerous. Today`s news headlines is about a woman who had been convicted of murdering her husband with a hammer, which on appeal had been reduced to manslaughter of a new "kind". Sort of mercy killing,she said she still loved him. Yet only a few months before another dear old German born, Mrs.Hennegret Donnely, was convicted of murdering her husband with a rolling pin. Poor old Mr. Donnely had previous injuries thought to have been inflicted by his wife over many years of marriage and the judge speculated that he may have enjoyed the rolling pin treatment.

So my suggestion would be that a firearms licence be required for keeping hammers and rolling pins in the home.

My mother - probably the world's worst cook - never had a rolling pin. She always used a glass milk bottle.....which could be just as deadly a weapon as a hammer.............
