Someone is Getting Grounded in Manitou Springs

Well, that made for an exciting evening. Smell of smoke, thought it was a neighbor’s medicine. Then Fire truck sirens. Grabbed my shoes and Peanut who was howling like a dog who hears sirens. Smoke, Flames 4 houses up the road, big flames, ran back in, turned off my bedroom window fan, put on my pants,,,only wearing moo moo. Big huge flames. Called Eunice below…PUT ON YOUR SHOES! Fire! Met her downstairs. Congregational Church minister driving jeep with TALLGIRL on license plate parks in front of house, jumps out in his volunteer fire pants. News truck appears. I sit in shadow of front tree,,,,moo moo not that great lookin and didn’t want to get on the news. Eunice and I were jabbering and speculating. Verdict. Brush fire.  Someones getting grounded.  Fireworks.
