i *heart* firemen!
i am accumulating a lot of fire memorabila it seems. i have lots of firemen christmas ornaments.
and my daughter got me this cool fireman's cookie jar. and i have several little firemen figures all around, including one that my dad made when he used to make ceramics many years ago. (i don't have a picture of that one here)
i guess i just feel closer to my dad with them around. i also got a memorial tattoo a few years ago of his badge. i really like it, but the only thing is it is on my back so i can't really see it all the time! but i decided it really needs flames on it, so someday i will get around to having some put on.
yesterday, my youngest daughter got into a bit of a scrape...she lost control of her car, and it ended up in a muddy ditch on the side of the road. she is o.k., just got shaken up a bit, and the car had to be towed, and now needs body work (again), but who was the first to come by and help her out, and make sure she was o.k.? a fireman!
