leap_to_faith has become the official Albion Fire Department photographer as of the recent Chain O' Lakes Festival parade, and has started an account where she can post some of her AFD related pictures:

She's already better than me. I said, jealously.

Go, Leap_Of_Faith! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

simile?
Well, I hope the apple falls close to the tree without collecting any of the family nuts ... which might be the worst metaphor *ever*.

I love photography, it'll always be in my top five of favorite hobbies. And it's a lot less expensive, now that digital has come along.

a boatload of information
Most fire departments in America are actually Fire/rescue/medical services. The AFD's runs are divided into about thirds between EMS medical assists, fires of various types, and service or rescue calls. (That last one includes vehicle accidents.) Since there are several lakes in our 96 square miles response area, including Chain O' Lakes State Park (which, surprisingly, has lakes), we maintain a boat for whatever kind of water related emergency might come in.

Actually, there's an interesting story behind that boat. Our first boat was an old craft donated by a neighboring fire department, which got a new one. This one was built by two of our members who work at a boat company, who assembled it on their off hours using donated materials -- the only thing we had to pay for was the motor. We're pretty darn proud of it.

Way to go, leap_to_faith for all of the pix!!

So, was Char at the parade?

I think you're confusing Charis, who's leap_to_faith, with Jillian, who's jillyh2009 ... I think. Charis was the one taking the pictures, while Jillian was the one who was running for Chain O' Lakes Festival Queen. Unfortunately, Princess Jillian's asthma/allergies were acting up all week, and by Saturday she didn't want to leave the area of the air cleaner and air conditioner, and missed the parade. I don't think she was disappointed, though.

Char...my SISTER who's an EMS.

Oh! This is the part where I say "duh" ... several people call Charis "Char" prounounced Chair, so I leaped to conclusions. I keep forgetting she's your sister, because my emergency services life is so separate from my cyber life. In any case, no, I didn't see her, although I did see her in passing earlier in the week. Next time I see her, I need to kick myself in the rear and remembere to mention you.
