How Could I Resist? #CFFC
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week (I am joining on the last day again) is described best in Cee’s own words:
“This week our topic is celebrating Fire. Photos of fire, fiery colors, flames, fire stations, fire trucks, etc. are all allowed in this challenge.”
Now I ask you, is there an item in that list that I don’t like?
For the record, I only like fire when it’s under control and being used for a good purpose. I am sad when I read about house fires, buildings being damaged or destroyed by fire and forest fires.
The challenge is a very good one for me this week, because I’ve been rather busy, but a quick search of my photos turned up more than enough images to satisfy Cee’s generous categories. Some of you may have seen some of these photos before, but I hope you enjoy them again today.
By the way, next week, Cee’s prompt in this series is “wood.” I think I might be back.
The sky looked like it was on fire.

At the time this post goes live, it’s 3°f (-16°c). MiMi would like a fire.
This is the Mt. Tom Hose House. It was the first fire station in Holyoke, built in 1849. Today it is home to commercial businesses.
Where I grew up, we call this a fire plug. People around here don’t know what that phrase means.
Inside the Small House they were roasting chestnuts on an open fire.
A firehouse in the 1800’s. Still a beautiful building.
Opps, wrong setting for fireworks
I love this sunset.
I know it’s hard work but this looks like fun.
A little cutting, bending, welding and drilling is all we need.

After she cut the rim in four places, we smooshed it together, clamped it and welded it back together.
The best part of the parade.
That’s Ken, walking with the department crew. He was a good friend. He died several years ago. R.I.P. Ken
