Checking It Thrice

A story stolen from Jan (err, Skippy) who got it from Denny:

A firefighter was working on the engine outside the Station, when he noticed a little girl nearby in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides and a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle.

The girl was wearing a firefighter’s helmet. The wagon was being pulled by her dog and her cat. The firefighter walked over to take a closer look.

‘That sure is a nice fire truck,’ the firefighter said with admiration.

‘Thanks,’ the girl replied.

The firefighter looked a little closer.

The girl had tied the wagon to her dog’s collar and to the cat’s testicles.

‘Little partner,’ the firefighter said, ‘I don’t want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat’s collar, I think you could go faster.

‘The little girl replied thoughtfully, ‘You’re probably right, but then I wouldn’t have a siren.’

  2. Hi DM ~~ I love that groundhog and really do like your picture
    of the center. I never knew! 🙂 Our weather men are predicting
    on him that we will have a stormy Wednesday, rain of course, no
    snow. They are happy because it will mean that “Spring is just
    around the corner.”

    I don’t like going to dentists ever, still. Right now I am having
    some dental issues and have four teeth out to be replaced. There
    needed to be bone graft which has taken pretty good now.

    My sister is in town from Iowa visiting her family about a hundred
    miles from here. And I am getting a lesson prepared to teach Sunday
    school this Sunday. That means I won’t be blogging much this weekend
    except for my ‘poem’ on the other blog. That then, means the bone
    counting contest is still taking entries.
    I might steal your groundhog and the center?
