Sirens in Sussex County
Just got back from our Daily Ride. Every day I try to take Bill out of the house for his daily ride.
This morning we stopped at the Post Office. I had more books to mail to my blogger friend Jon. By the way, Jon writes a very interesting blog called "Lone Wolf Concerto." Check it out here.
We took our usual ride down Oyster Rocks Road to the Broadkill River. Then on the way back I drove us through the Osprey Landing development and the Oyster Rocks development, which adjoins our housing development. We have to check the progress of the new houses. We're the unofficial housing inspectors.
The temperature and the humidity is climbing today. On days like this the birds in our backyard make good use of our eight bird baths. While I was out replenishing the bird baths I heard the wail of multiple sirens and the "WHAP! WHAP!" of an overhead helicopter.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
The last time we had this much excitement down here in Lower Slower (LSD) was when Joan Rivers majestically graced the Great Unwashed down here with her presence by arriving in a ridiculously long, black stretch limo with triple darkened windows. But alas, Joan is no longer with us so what could all this cacophony be about?
Vice President Biden? Uncle Joe frequently visits but his visits aren't usually accompanied with all that racket.
Maybe a memorial service for the first of the
five slain Dallas Police officers? Probably.
Tell you what, I'll let you know when I find out.
This kind of activity keeps up folks, we'll lose our reputation as Lower Slower.
Note: Just got an update. All this activity was a gathering of firefighters from across the state to honor the memory of a local firefighter who fell to his death from a helicopter during a training exercise.
