  3. I think that is the cutest fire truck I've ever seen!

  5. Hi Anni, this is a cutie and I have to wonder how they managed to actually do the work of firemen with the simple equipment they had.
    Happy RT to yah. :))

  6. Wow! This vehicle certainly favours the colour red! A striking vintage vehicle!

  7. Just wanted to come by and see how you are and what you have been Hootin about lately.
    I love these pictures of the old fire truck.
    Hope your doing well and wish I was there to take a walk on the beach with you. Maybe thats what I need is to move back to the coast where I was born. It always seems to be calling me.

  19. hi hootin anni.
    i just love this old fire engine!
    i would have been here sooner but for some reason, my comments weren't getting through to me..i had to copy and paste your comment from my email.
    felisol is having trouble too.
    i wonder what google is trying to prove!
    thanks for your visit.
    you know bernie and i are going out west and in two weeks we will be in my beloved mantitoba.
    although the air force base where mom and dad golden and their nine kids lived, was closed by the government and the place just utterly destroyed..the houses and the school all torn down, in one field there sits the old red rivers fire truck that my dad used to drive.
    it is still there!
    last year we took a lot of pictures of it for dad golden, THIS year i am going to take a few little parts as souvenirs..after all they have left it for junk!
    twenty years ago when we visited the base with our motorcycle, at that time the foundation of the house we used to live in was still there and so i took a few pieces of the stone foundation...not a lot.[the motorcycle only had two saddle bags]
    with the little red car, we will be able to fit a few more treasures..ha!
    happy ruby tuesday, my encouraging friend.
    bernie so appreciated your comment and i told him coming from an ARTIST, that's a pretty good comment!....love terry
