Today was a proud day. My Dad was being honored at the 22nd Annual Fire Fighter of the Year Ceremony in Worcester, MA. The ceremony started at 12:30 and it was an hour away. I knew I needed a good breakfast because I wouldn’t be eating lunch until after the ceremony.
I whipped up an omelet with spinach, broccoli, and feta. I added a splash of Frank’s, of course.
My Dad, along with other Fire Fighters from his department were being honored for a large fire that happened this summer. A gasoline tanker was hit by another car and exploded on route 1 in my town. There were 8 other cars involved in the crash. The gasoline spill leaked into the Saugus river and the river caught on fire. A few surrounding houses and a local business were also involved in the fire. The fire was the largest one my Dad has ever been in charge of. He was the Incident commander for this fire.
|That's my Dad! His middle initial is NOT N, but that's ok.|
It was a very moving ceremony. They honored many towns’ fire fighters for their bravery in different situations. I am glad to be a part of the Fire Fighter community.
After the ceremony we went to lunch to celebrate. I was so hungry because it was almost 4 pm and I had eaten breakfast at 9am. I ordered the Haddock sandwich with sweet potato fries. Delicious!
Now I’m off to the gym!
