Last night, three gorgeous firefighters came a-knocking at our door to give our house a full fire saftey check-up. The hiss of the hydraulic brakes must have woken Joseph from his slumber, as before long I could see his little head poking around the wall at the top of the stairs. So I called him down, and the fire fighters very kindly took our little man around the fire engine. Now, to this little munchkin, it is a big deal. He ABSOLUTELY loves Fireman Sam and anything to do with fire fighters and fire engines. I really wish I had the forethought to take some snaps with my camera. Joe's eyes were as wide as saucers as he looked around the engine, and saw the helmet, axe, the Jaws of life, the hoses and the ladders. The driver even put on the flashing lights and the siren for a couple of seconds. Joe's comment was "It doesn't have a Simon Snorkel like Fireman Sam's fire engine!" Oh well, you can't win 'em all! Today, he's gone to school with his Fireman Sam fire engine in hand, bursting to tell all his school chums about his magical visitors last night. Bless Him!
