Fire fighters, right? What’s not to love. Brave, dedicated, often heroic. They go above and beyond the call of duty. This weekend I heard/read a lovely story about a firefighter trying to rescue a Wellington woman’s cat. It actually happened near my cousin’s house a few hours before we arrived for a visit. You can read the article by clicking here. In a nutshell, a fire fighter climbed a tree to try and get a cat down, but the cat wasn’t so happy about being rescued. Long story short, both he and the not-so-friendly-feline fell out of the tree. A helicopter had to be called in to winch the guy to safety, but luckily, the reports are he’s okay (and the cat took off), but the sweetest awwww moment? First thing the fire fighter asked when he regained consciousness was whether he’d “got the cat”.
And the other thing about fire fighters…at least the ones I like thinking about, ha ha, are the ones who look like the guys in the below clip:
Our New Zealand fire fighters also do a calendar, and I’ll be doing some giveaways of those calendars in the next month or so. Make sure you’re signed up to my newsletter to hear about the giveaways. Sign up to my non-spammy-’cause-I’m-too-lazy newsletter here.
Hope this was a fun start to your week – it certainly cheered me up.
Tomorrow, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts, so I will be, along with thousands of others, attempting to write 50,000 words in November. I want to keep blogging during this time, but my posts may end up being funny cat pictures and random caffeine fueled craziness – but that’s cool, right?
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
