Next came Mom, standing with arms folded looking down at the proceedings.

When we looked out again a few minutes later, there was nothing but grass.

For some reason, this was the funniest stage of all. When we pulled in the driveway today, the boy looked over and said he thought he saw some scorch marks – but that was all.
