What to say, what to say!

Things getting a little routine around this house.  Makes for little to talk about.  Last night was Grannies Night Out, laughing referred to as "Wet Wednesday".  As usual we had a good time and solved all the problems of the world.   At least to our way of thinking.

Another pancake breakfast coming up this weekend.  The last one was for another community, this one is for ours.  The fire dept. Jack used to be on.  They use the money for purchases for the dept. in order to save the taxpayers from some of the expenses for the things they need.  Here is a quote from last nights paper.

"Town Receives New Equipment.
The Town of Beloit Firefighters Association, comprised of dues-paying fire department personnel, recently donated two new sets of TNT Jaws of Life to the Town of Beloit.
With this latest purchase the Firefighters Association has now donated more than $200,000 worth of rescue, medical and training equipment to the Town of Beloit since 1989.
On Saturday, the Firefighters Association will be raising funds at their 22nd Annual Pancake Breakfast from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beloit Turner High School." (I did leave out personnel names and the school address) 

Jack works this event every year. Both because he was a paid - on - call fighter for 35 years, but as the school (he used to work at the school district) and fire dept. liaison.  He is the one who goes in by 4 and gets everything ready for the firefighters to to come in and get the burners up a ready to cook on.  I hope the success of this event is as profitable this year as in the past.


  1. The fire dept and your husband are to be commended for the good works that they do!!

  2. Those kind of fundraisers are really good. You go there for breakfast, probably run into friends, get some local gossip and the FD makes some money. A win, win situation. I love going to pancake breakfasts.

  3. Count me in on the pancake breakfast. They are a weakness I have. I had 'em for breakfast today. I do insist on real maple syrup though.

  4. Glad to hear about the things you're doing there. Involvement like that serves a wonderful purpose!

  5. What a lovely idea to have the pancake breakfast
    with your friends.
    We do raising funds for all time especially this year as you know too many damaged in our country.

    The Firefighters Association were works very hard
    in this country too.
