The Governor's fire pit. Okay, there's a story here. As we were walking up the driveway to the house, I wondered out loud if the Governor had a fire pit like a lot of us do in our backyard.

I started laughing because I didn't expect that I would see this. Some of my friends wanted to put a match in it, since the wood is already laid out for a fire.
