The Pennsylvania State Firemen's Parade is lining up in front of our house. 300+ firefighting units from across the Commonwealth and they're all passing our house. The noise will be astounding. I'll be at work 15 miles away and I'll probably STILL hear it. I could be dead in the ground and I'd still hear it. I could be in another solar system and I'd still hear it.
God forbid there's a fire and the local companies have to get there.
*--I have no idea where "The Fireman's Song" came from. I just remember my first WMU home football game where the band sang it during the 3rd quarter. Since I'm a family man and this is a family-oriented column (OK, it's all about me, but I digress), you'll have to look up the lyrics on your own.
