We have the best Neighbors....

Pine Knoll Shores Fire Department

My office just happens to be right next door to the Pine Knoll Shores Fire/EMS/Police Emergency Team.  We are often the first to know about a fire, a car accident, etc. as they rush out of the parking lot with the sound of sirens filling the air.  Yesterday, as I left the office, tired & grumpy, I looked up to see our local heroes training and running drills and it was a beautiful sight!  At that moment, Our Local Heroes touched my heart and didn't even know it!

 

I wonder if they have any idea how much we appreciate all that they do!  I think some cookies and a note are in order....

What a nice way to recognize them!  I'm sure they don't hear it often enough, but, THANK YOU!

Cinnamon - We see them almost everyday, but don't always think to say Thank You.  I will now!

Sally & David - You are absolutely right, Gotta show them and tell them often just how much they mean to all of us.  And yes....brownies and cookies will be in their break room first thing Monday Morning.

If anyone has the capability of letting someone know how much they are appreciated, I would say that is you Amy..............I'm sure they will enjoy the cookies and the note, as much as I enjoyed my birthday card you sent me.............thanks so much.

Firefighters are the unsung heroes in the community. I think cookies and a note are definitely in order for your neighbors!

Amy, Funny, our office is also positioned right next to a fire house. I've see them down at our beach doing training drills and a competition. That's fun to see...dragging the hose,, climbing ladders....all in relay.

Bliz - Aren't they tho'?

Glenn - I think most of us are very grateful for all they do...we just forget to tell them sometimes.

Craig - Cookies, for sure!  If Tanner doesn't eat them all....guess I'll have to make an extra batch!

Ellen - We love watching them train...In the summer months, they spray water over the parking lot and if looking out my window, all you see is sunny rain and rainbows.

Amy:  Whenever we can let these wonderful men and women know just how much we appreciate them... well, that is a gift to them, and to us as well.  Time very well spent.  They are so often overlooked... and we really need to let them know how much they mean to us.

By the way, Miss Amy... what a great new picture.  You look wonderful in orange.  What an excellent color for this beautiful Fall season.  I never knew anyone who changed their wardrobe according to the four seasons.  Great job !  <smile>

Marian - Thanks!  I couldn't resist the photo...It was too perfect!  Those guys have come to our rescue many times...I take it, you'll accompany me to thank them this week?

Laura - Sorry...just wait til' you read the post I am gonna write about the "Snickers" contest I won, and the 29 bags of snickers as part of the reward :-)

Karen Anne - Absolutely...We need to let them know, OFTEN!  Thanks...Orange is one of my favorite colors (maybe 'cause I love Fall so much).
