Today is National Storytelling Day - one that is anxiously awaited and celebrated throughout the nation! (yeah...not really :)) BUT it is a national day set aside specifically for storytelling! For that reason, I am using this blog post to share a short story - Enjoy!
Fire-fighters' Halloween Story
County Community Burn Ordinances Pertaining to recreational fires and burning of yard and household waste.
All outdoor burning is prohibited in the City except for those parcels described in ordinance. Recreational fires are allowed, but not during the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
At 8.00pm on October 31st two fire-fighters could see a fire raging in the back yard. It was clearly in breach of the rule on burning leaves after dark. One of the fireman knocked on the door, and they both waited each holding their helmet in their hand. The little old woman opened the door and promptly dropping a bar of candy into each helmet. She then told them, 'Aren't you boys are a little old for trick and treat, and closed the door'. The fire-fighters left open mouthed.
