Well today one of the things on my to do list is to head into the city and collect a couple of things from the Fire Station. A friend from work (Stephanie) decided that she should come with me. I said that I was only going to the front desk and as the rest of the station is authorised access only, we might not see anything. Stephanie goes weak at the knees when it comes to firemen and brought her camera 'just in case'.

Standing at the front desk, Stephanie's neck was breaking trying to see if she could spot a fireman through the window. I spoke to the girl behind the desk and she got a fireman to come out. He was a lovely young man. He asked if we would like a tour of the firestation and although I had been there before, I knew Stephanie would be thrilled.

I introduced myself, then the fireman said his name is Angus, we waited for Stephanie to introduce herself but I had to introduce her. Not often that she is speechless.

Once we got inside I started to take a few photoes of the appliances and Stephanie was asking Angus all sorts of questions. She was a happy girl. Poor Angus, he offered to take a photo of us lady's in front of one of the appliances, to which Stephanie said, "no! I don't want a photo with her, I want one with you"  I laughed but I don't no what Angus thought.

It was good, I got the photoes I wanted and Stephanie got some photoes with the fireman.

I then had a couple of other things to do while in that area. Stephanie is still floating on air.
