Dalmatian Not Included

Looking for a little excitement to brighten up your average afternoon lull? Short on funds?

Have I got the solution for you. It's exciting! It's fun for all ages! It's educational! And best of all, with just a quick phone call, you can have it delivered right to your door for FREE*!

That's right, you heard me- FREE*.

Are you curious? Are you just dying to know what this fantastic opportunity for family fun is?

How about a friendly visit from your local firefighters? You too can enjoy the excitement of a fire truck zooming right to your door.

How can you get in on this opportunity? It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

1. Return home to the sound of your carbon monoxide detector bleeping away in your child's bedroom.

2. Scour the internet and your detector manual for instructions on what to do.

3. Reluctantly dial 911.

That's it. That's all you have to do. Now, head outside and wait for the excitement to begin.

It's even okay to include your neighbors in the excitement because once they see that big red truck parked on the street, there'll be no keeping them away.

There you have it. A fun mid-afternoon activity that the whole family can enjoy, and best of all it's FREE*!


*Advanced payment in the form of local taxes is HIGHLY encouraged.


(Sadly, no pictures as I was occupied concealing my super red cheeks and accompanying Linus on his truck tour.)

Oh my!! You had me laughing, though I do hope everything was OK! I am pretty well known for burning food and setting off the fire detector.

Yes, everything was fine. Our detector was old and just decided to give out. No carbon monoxide detected so no worries.

Oh my goodness. I'm so glad you all are okay. That is nothing to mess with.

And BONUS! Linus got a visit from the big red truck!

(I feel your pain on the red-faced part, though...) ;)

Too funny, but I like the free about it! Bailey is totally into fire trucks and firemen now, too bad we have to wait until we have an emergency. I am glad you guys were okay and nothing was wrong.

Fun day! You think of the best field trips, Abby, and you didn't even have to leave home for this one!
