In a world that looks a little bit crazy, yesterday I saw one of the nicest things ever. As I was driving down North West Highway past Keller's drive in, I saw a big red firetruck pulled over and parked, and all the firemen were picking up trash accumulated along the road. They were laughing and horsing around like guys do and never mind they were adorable looking--that's not the point--although it sure could be now that I think about it. What is it about firemen anyway? OK. Another column. It was that here they were, guys who fight to keep us safe, and they were doing something as simple as stopping to pick up trash. Let's face it......don't most of us think it's somebody elses job to pick up litter? Wow. Note to self.
On another note, yesterday our invitation to Claire's birthday cookout and lunch was in our mail basket so you know where we'll be on Saturday. Today one of my missions will be to go get her birthday present and since she's a real outdoor girl, the door is wide open for fun stuff to choose.
