Fancy a swim with a fireman?
Greetings green finger folk,
Weather first, its been “G” string weather here in fance today, a really hot one,
Ive been in the garden most of the day except when the local fire officer appeared with a question?
Now i have one neighbour just across the track from us and unless you shake her you’d never know she was alive “We never hear her” except for when she ask if we’ll feed her cat at 5 pm if she’s going to her daughter’s home.
To the rear is a couple in their 80’s and we can’t see their house in the summer because of the trees full of leaves,
and again as ive said many times is so quiet here I swear you could hear a mouse fart.
And thats it for any near neighbours, we only have six homes in the complete hamlet and they’re spread over about 5 mile.
So having explained all this you’ll understand that if any of these homes caught fire!!!!! Water to fight such a fire would be needed and fast.
Now we are all on meters here for the water we use and to fill the pool cost us,
The fire officer came to ask if any of these homes went on fire would we allow the firemen to use our pool,
Not to swim but take the water to fight the fire?
We said yes no problem and now our name is going on next years fire dept list of good dept people.
Im really pleased about that, the first english people here in this hamlet to get this “good local people noting”
(We are the only english full timer’s who live here)
So one day we may find a fireman or lady using our pool.
Have a nice one tomorrow folks ’it’s more sun here’.
