Yes its true. Bob is a firefighter...I will tell you all about it further down the page..but first...
Marley is getting so much better...
Easter is just around the corner..
What a sweetheart...The vet said the eye looked good. They had to take out a stitch that didn't dissolve on its on. They said to keep putting the antibiotic cream in her eye until the tube was all. There is still some redness but nothing like before..We are on our way to recovery!!!
Now about the fire..
About 4:00 pm yesterday Mickey walked outside. He immediately came back in and shouted to me that there was a fire! I stopped what I was doing and walked outside..Bob right with me. Soon as I walked out I could see smoke all throughout our yard and I started walking down the driveway to see what was going on. As I got to the end of the driveway I realized that directly across Peebly there was an out of control fire. Brush and trees were burning. There was no time to take Bob back to the house. I gathered him up and carried him across the road with me. I didn't want to take a chance on him getting hit on the road and Mickey was still behind on the phone calling 911. I knew that people lived down the gravel drive right where the fire was so I ran thru the smoke and down the driveway to their home carrying Bob all the while. Finally at their home, I put Bob down and beat on their door and told them what was happening. They put hoses together and we ran back to the fire stomping and spraying and I told the teenage boy that lived there to go back and get some towels. We then wet them down and beat back the flames as best as we could. Bob was right there. The smoke was horrible and the flames were terribly hot. We held on until the fire company finally came about 10-15 mins later. At that time I literally threw down the towel and gathered Bob up and walked home.
It was quite the experience..
On a lighter note, the feeders are out and the hummers are back..
