||Old photos from Summer 1999
recently resurfaced for posting. Here's Town of Superior's Pumper
One, in front of our house. The district is seven miles away, the
fire station another five after that. Why was a Township engine
inside the City, in front of our house, you ask? Superior's Annual
Fire Muster Parade, which runs along the street just three blocks from
home. So I got the truck with Genny and drove it on up to the city,
and we got the attention of the neighborhood. Shortly after these
photos were taken, the pumper was surrounded by about fifteen children
under the age of twelve.
||Here's a family heirloom
shot, right? Pumper One in our driveway! Guess where I left
Farley? In the fire station, of course. Trading places....
looks kind of silly, and it's a good thing we didn't ask Farley to move
1250 gallons of water per minute at a fire that day while filling in.
||Genny is seen in the
driver's seat shortly before the parade began. It's pretty fun
watching a parade of fire engines when you're three going on four
(remember this is from last year), but it's more fun when you're actually in
one of the fire engines and pushing the siren button!
