Dan, Dan the Fire-man

I don't believe I've mentioned that Dan joined the volunteer fire department here in Cokeville. In a town with only 500 people, the fire department is staffed strictly by volunteers. Dan has become quite the community man, going to the town council meetings and being on the town economic steering committee. When he found out that the fire department was low on volunteers, he signed up. He has training on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. He has participated in one training exercise where they burned down an old trailer just two doors down the street from us. Unfortunately, I was out of town so I don't have any pictures.

Well, Dan just got his first call to a fire at 10:00 tonight. It's a brush fire out on Highway 30 north of town. And dadgummit, it would have to happen at night when the kids are in bed so I can't go take any pictures. I plan to get a picture of Dan all dressed up in his full gear, but for now this will have to suffice.

How do you think Dan would look with a mustache? Or, for that matter, big bushy eyebrows? I'm sure I'll have the chance to find out on the latter in 30 years or so.

Good luck, Bin! I'm proud of you!

Dude, that is a sweet pic! Where'd you find it? And you need to remind your man to take pics with his cell phone and then send them directly to your email. That way, even though they'll be not-so-great pics, at least it's better than nothing.

Dan says he doesn't have anything rippling now except cellulite. :) Join the club, buddy!
