I know!! My BIL started at station #2, it was a single floor station out where space was not an issue. They at least had the fire dog. He eventually became the Chief at station #1.
Yeah!! That's a slide!! Plus two places to slide down on the sides. Note* did you notice where they sprayed roundup around the posts so they could just mow around them!!! Back in our day they just used diesel fuel.
It is amazing how we all managed to survive the things we did, and the merry-go-round.
I take for granted that everybody knew about the summertime cool of thing we did by poking the sprinkler socket with a piece of re-bar. Can you say old faithful!!! That only worked where they used the huge rain-birds so that might limit it.
That's a rough situation Mark. At least you could possibly meet up with the lady on her tractor & have tea or something. Maybe start a tractor cruise night. . . . .
by the time you hit 60 and you will appreciate well designed stairs.
You are so right about appreciating well designed stairs.
Way back when I was a delivery guy, (three and a half years worth) it was common to have 20 to 30 stops per route. All were commercial buildings, some multi level with freight elevators others in small commercial complexes. Then the ones spread over acres with many grade changes and an assortment of steps in the court yards. You soon learned how to use a dolly and we had a full variety, some with the long fold down foot for carrying suit case type cases stacked as high as you could manage to cut down on multi trips.
Several had stairs that were the open steel type and would climb five or six floors. Many stops were mail only and we just hauled it in canvas bags up the stairs. There were some buildings that just were harder to navigate. The ones with shorter rises seemed to be the dreaded ones that took forever to get where you were going but that was on 19 - 20 year old legs.
I guess Larry and his dog won't be visiting any time soon, I like the looks of the open stairs.
They seem to not look so massive.
