Bad Night in Mark Town

Feeling a bit better now, which means I can't have what knocked Emily down for the last week. Vinny (Charis' fiance) came over and installed a new vent system for our furnace yesterday (heat, yay!).  I wonder now if all the dust from his drilling and sawing and such didn't turn my little head cold into a full-blown dust allergy attack. Breathing in dust can clobber me like getting hit by a truck.

On an unrelated note, I also got to experience the wonder of back muscle spasms last night, possible a long-term result of pulling a ceiling at the house fire Sunday. I've lived with chronic back pain for over 25 years (also as a result of a fire), but that's skeletal; this was something *very* special.

 Wasn't a good night.

hand pumped fire engine in action

I'm polishing early chapters of "Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights", my history of the Albion Fire Department, and there are numerous mentions made of Albion's first, hand-pumped fire engine. I thought you all might want to see what those engines looked like in operation, so I found this online:
