No One Said Firefighters Could Spell

A firefighter can rescue someone, put out a fire, and essentially save the day, but spelling isn't necessarily a requirement for the job.  See example below:


This is the sign on a door for a class at the Northeast Kingdom Mutual Aid Fire School that I am sorely missing this year.  Every spring for two days the highschool becomes a gathering place for all the local firefighters to congregate and socialize while taking a few specialized training courses. 

Its where you see all the people you only see at structure fires in the middle of the night.  Heck, most everyone there is friends, even.  There's a lot of firm handshakes and back slapping that goes on.  This year I live almost two hours away from where the school is held so its not feasible for me to travel to it, but seeing this photo makes me smile knowing that all my buddies, some of the "Good 'ol Boys" of Vermont haven't changed and probably never will.

It says something about me that it took me a minute or two to figure out what was spelled wrong! I thought "Highbred" was some kind of special vehicle. I guess I would have fit right in!

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that made me think of you- it said "firefighters kick ash." It was on a car in our church parking lot! Haha.

And maybe those cars were just bred up in the mountains or something. :)

how about throws instead of throes..... as in the throes of something? everyone makes spelling and grammatical errors sometimes.
