A Small Request
The Better Half is a volunteer fire-fighter. For those of you who don't live in a city, your fire department and possibly your EMS are volunteer. Redneck jokes aside, these deparments usually hold breakfasts, dinners, auctions and dances in order to raise money for the department. Every year, local governments decide that they "just can't help fund the department this year cause money is tight" while tossing tax money to duplicative services or their favorite slush fund. Remember, these are guys who might have to save your life or property one day. They need new gear, new trucks, insurance, new facilities and manpower, so . . . If it strikes your fancy, donate to those departments by eating there or dancing there. They could use your help. That is all . . .
