As the weather continues to improve the forest dries out and wildfires become an issue. Each of us must take responsibility for our own actions in preventing fire incidents in our area.

Following is a little story that may help to remind each of us in this regard.

The story takes place in a small town where some Friars needed to raise some money so they opened up a small florist shop. Because everyone  liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought that the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but, they would not. He went back and begged them. They ignored him. He asked his mother to plead with them. They ignored her, too. Finally, the rival florist hired Hugh McMuscle, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to “persuade” them to close. Hugh beat up the Friars and trashed their store saying he would be back if they didn’t close shop. Terrified they did so thereby proving ( are you ready) that Hugh and only Hugh can prevent Florist Friars.

Have a great month.
