Friday Fulminations, My Firemen, and Some Feathered Friends

16 Apr

“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.”

So, we have had SO much rain lately that I told a few friends that I was running up to Home Depot to pick up a lot of lumber and start building the ARK. Now, how to gather all the animals two by two is another story. Well, most people know my weird sense of humor, or lack there of. Miss June gave me a funny look while she pondered how I planned on building an Ark. she got it after a little reflection.

I almost had a head start this morning when I was walking the dog in the rain. A few friendly ducks were across the street waddling around on the neighbors front lawn. Plenty of water around.

Now for the fulminations. I stopped at my fire station with some brownies this afternoon.

A few minutes after the young man went back to check on my other empty containers from the previous weeks, one of the captains came out to talk to me.

“Sorry Miss Toni. We aren’t able to accept homemade treats yet. The other guys didn’t realize that the chiefs are frowning upon and are insisting that no homemade food be brought in. Not even from home or their souses. It’s a safety issue with Covid . Pre-packaged items are ok. But, we have your number and you’ll be the first one we call when we get the ok.”

Well, back to my packaged tortilla chips, canned beans, and Bernard’s Salsa. “”Sigh.”

Happy Friday, my friends.
