Red Zones Have A Reason...!


When you live in the big city...ANY big city, one of the things you notice more and more is the fact that some folks think they own the world!

It seems like the fancier the car, the more rules are ignored. Common courtesy doesn't even exist for some people!

The main problem with that, is that sometimes by not being courteous, by not obeying the rules, you could put other people's lives in jeopardy. Sometimes, even courteous and friendly folks like firemen have to do what ever they need to rectify the situation. This photo just proves my point!



The Red Zone is there for a reason! Maybe now they will pay attention! Then again, maybe not...!

However, once in a while...you do see something that's akin to wisdom and humor in the big city. Take a look at this picture...



Now I think we should just get another cup of coffee and sit on the patio for a bit. OK, my friend?

LOL. Good one Jim, thanks for the laugh. I'll bet the fire hose guy even tried to get reimbursed for the windows. Good luck to him/her.

Hey FCH...
There is some justice in the world, after all!

Tanks for coming by!

Rod said...

Great one Jim. Hope he got a ticket on top of having to replace his windows. Wait even better yet hope they towed the car also!

HermitJim said...

Hey Rod...
I have a feeling that this car now belongs to the fire department! If it doesn't, it should...

Hey, thanks for coming by, my friend!

Did it MY way said...

HermitJim;
lmao-funny.

I don't need sex any more since the government screws me daily.

Coffee tastes good this morning.

Morning Jim! Hose through the guy's window...now that's funny!!
Now how about a fresh cinnamon roll to go with our coffee? Got anything baking at your house?
Have a great day!!

BTW, I'll be at Moody Gardens on June 7TH and 8TH. E-mail me if that's close enough and maybe we can get together for a meet while I'm there for a training conference. Buy you a cup of coffee or a seafood dinner!

Hey Tony...
I know what you mean, my friend! Bad thing is, we don't even get a kiss this time around!

Hey, thanks for the visit this morning!


Hey Cath...
I sure don't have any fresh cinnamon bread baking...but it sounds delicious to me!

I'm loving the pictures of your place lately, and that garden...WOW!

I sure am glad you could drop by today, my friend.


Hey RW...
That's just down the road from me, Buddy! I'd love to have a face to face while you're here!

I'll send you an email and we can set something up!

Really appreciate the visit this morning, my friend.See you soon...

Pretty funny Jim.

HermitJim said...

Hey Ken...
I'm thinking that the escort driver would have had better sense that to park in a Fire Zone...but you never know.

Thanks for the isit today, buddy!


Hey Blondie...
Glad to see you are getting up and about some more. Hope the bug has left you for now...

I know those critters are watching you close to see what day they can raid th garden...hell, they probably mark it on their calendar!

Good to see ya today, Girl!
