    Bittersweet day around here today...

    A bittersweet day around here today with the funeral of a fallen volunteer fire fighter. I didn't go to the event but I heard it was pretty stunning with over a 100 fire vehicles in the processional from the funeral to the cemetery. Small towns love their volunteers, especially when we often take them for granted. If you're a volunteer firefighter or emt, please give yourself a pat on the back. If you know one, give them a hug the next time you see them and thank them for their service.



    Hundreds line the streets for fallen firefighter's memorial

    I guess that shows the positive side of living in a small community where everybody knows everybodies elses business.

    The place at the end of the video where he was buried and was a member of their FD, is a small town. My burg is about 10x the size. Still small for a lot of folks on here I'm sure but I certainly don't know many people's "business" (about 50 houses in my subdivision and I don't know most--suburban living can be weird...).
