Default fIRE fIRE fIRE!!!


Stopped over this after at Doyne's on my way into work.
Portage and Hobart Fire dept. were still there
attending to the smoldering boats.
The "Pretty Women" was one of the boats that
burned up.
Bob the boat owner was there but I didn't make an effort to talk to him because I figured that he had enough to contend with without twenty questions from me.
Still though I wonder which boat had the unattended heater that started the fire.

Would like get together with ya and go to the show but
I have to make the,,,,,,,,,WHATEVER!!!
Talk to you soon and have fun,
