I would like to find Strike Anywhere matches, but it seems you have to send away to get them anymore.

They sell strike anywhere matches at Canadian Tire. So,,on your way up to buy matches there is a GT in Illinois I would like you to bring  along with you. TIA

Now that the weather has finally cooled off the MRS and I been looking forward to our frequent camp style fires out back in an old tractor rim that is now a fire pit.  We have plenty of wood just going to waste and this helps clean up the small stuff after I cut firewood for the shop stove for this winter. 

The other day while was gathering supplies for just such a fire I grabbed this box of matches off the shelf in the shop.  When I opened it this is what I found.

How this didn't burn my shop down I'll never know.  There was another box of identical matches with this one and they are fine.

I should buy a lottery ticket!



I just ran across this Kris---did you win the lottery then?


Man, you have me paranoid now! I think this box which is right above my lap in my shop computer desk may be going to the garbage! I would like to think welding and grinding sparks can't get to it BUT I do that stuff right on the other side of the wall this desk is against.


Glad it didn't start a fire!

Thanks Doug.

In a way, I certainly did win the lottery.   

I now keep the matches inside an old metal recipe box.

And they will never be behind the workbench, although I don't think that was a factor this particular time.

I try to avoid grinding inside if I can help it. I weld inside some but I don't like to. Part of that is because I have an attached garage and I have three boys on the other side.
