Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

F is for Firemen

Is this what your fireman looks like? Would be nice but we're forgetting that these are models and that someone has done their "make-up" to look like this. Now, I'm not saying that models don't work hard or can't be firemen, I'm just saying that I'm sure if you walk into any station you won't find this.

We need to remember that firemen are family men; son, husband, father, uncle, grandson. And family men come in all sorts of sizes and ages! As long as they're strong enough and with the right knowledge. Here's a picture from a calendar photo shoot with real firemen but I think it disproves everything I just wrote ;-)

And yes, I know that women can be firemen too.

This is as close as I can get to real firemen dressed in regular clothes. Most of the other pictures were in their turnouts!

Article about picture, here (wondering if these are some of the fire fighters or some of the supporters now!)

wondering if I have time to stop by my local fire station and ask for a picture? Totally forgot!

Yes, firefighters have a certain look, for sure. I know there are "regular guys" out there but somehow most of them are pretty darn handsome! More so than policemen I think. Thanks for sharing the pictures :)
