    Talking A lighter moment.

    My guys got dispatched to the report of "smoke in a residence" tonight.Turned out to be a burned out motor in the furnace. The owner was standing in the driveway as our engine pulled up. The crew dismounted and the owner greeted them with," How cute, you're all dressed up as firemen!" She was expecting maybe-----The Muppets?

    What are the "Village People"?
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Not only are you dating yourself, but your memory isn't as good any more.

    There were no firefighters in the Village People.

    Merry Christmas to all....

    Two things come to mind:

    Either way too much Egg Nog or a lonely Fire Flirt

    Happy Holidays Everyone

    Talking Yup ! !

    This lady drives around, or, more correctly, weaves thru about 4 police cars, several other noticable vehicles (anything as big as our rescue pumper HAS to be noticed), finally stopping when she found that her car would not fit between the Guardrail and one very irate State Trooper.As the trooper and I arrived at her window she asked "Has there been an accident?" I found something else to do quickly, as the trooper had things well in hand (ticketbook, etc.) Stay Safe....
