We left the house early this morning, and drove out to the firehouse. Today was the pancake breakfast, all you can eat for $5. Quite a deal - pancakes, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, juice and coffee. Hungry farmers lined up early, so they could return to the fields and start planting. What can I say about the men who wear this gear? As volunteers they train hard and risk their lives to save our homes, our barns and our lives. This is the fabric of rural life - a strong independence woven with support from your neighbors.
