No Water, But Good Reception

OKLAHOMA CITY FIREFIGHTERS WERE MET WITH a never-ending series of obstacles at a house fire on Saturday night.  It began with the response through a city that had recently been buried under snow and they ended up at a working fire in a neighborhood that had no hydrants.  The nearest water supply was the hydrant at the fire station approx. one mile away.

Once tanker relay was being established, the sub-freezing temperature complicated their attack on the well-involved house, including a room which was stocked with several cartons of ammunition for a variety of calibers.  As their water was freezing and the ammo was going off, the roof collapsed.  Oh…and there was a 40-ft. tall tv antenna mast on the roof that came down.

No doubt that was one crew that was looking forward to shift change.

    A husband and his wife who have been married 20 years were doing some yard work. The man was working hard cleaning the BBQ grill while his wife was bending over, weeding flowers from the flower bed. So the man says to his wife “Your rear end is almost as wide as this grill!” She ignores the remark. Later that night while in bed, her husband starts to feel frisky. The wife calmly responds, “If you think I’m gonna fire up the grill for one little wiener, you are sadly mistaken.”
