In the Hot House

“Oh wow, Grandad look! These are something else!”

Look! They’ve got bright spotlights on them and… look, they’ve also got powerful water jets… they’re amazing… and the ladders… they’re really really long… and they’re winding out really fast!”

“Yes Bobby, let’s just watch a minute and see how they manoeuvre the ladders.”

Wow, they spin right round too!”

“Can’t wait to tell Charlie what I’ve seen today…”

“…and wait ‘til I tell mum!”

Grandad took a deep, audible breath.

Oh dear, I’m in the hot house again!

“Now I know exactly what I want to ask Santa for Christmas!”

  1. I want a fire truck, a big one. One I can park in front of the house.

    True story: When I was a little boy, my Dad was a firefighter in the Air Force. One day while he was on duty, he came by our house in his truck and said he’d give me a ride. I was the envy of every kid everywhere. 😀
