Playing

I got to play today!

As I posted yesterday, the fire near here blew up.  You can check it out here.

I didn't plan on going out today because I'm so fat and because I can't be gone from Luken for so long.  So I went to the fire hall to clean up from yesterday's open house.

I put away the leftover cake.




After I'd cleaned up the firehouses, I got an assignment!  Another firefighter and I were sent to map the homes along the road at the edge of our district near the fire.  I had a blast!  I didn't see fire but I saw plenty of smoke.



The wind was whipping so fast! 




We ate lunch with a bunch of guys from our department.


Here's a fine example of a fire lunch.





Smoke down low, clouds up high.

I had a good day today.  I am dusty and tired and happy.

If you like what I post, let me know.  The pictures are mine.  Please ask me before you take them.

That's such a nice photo journal of your day. I'm glad you go out even if you thought you couldn't.
