Rusty Shares Fire Photos

Hi, it's me again, Rusty, on my chair. Jan thinks the chair is hers but I know it's mine because it's just my size.

It's a little warmer in here at the moment. We nearly froze yesterday cause Jan was so busy working on a project, she forgot to turn the heat up - even a little - but kept going until she nearly turned into an ice cube and we had to push her into a hot shower to thaw her out. We are expecting rain mixed with snow tonight. Definitely curl-up-on-a-chair indoors weather.

Before we forget again, we'd like to thank Gracie for the lovely Valentine header she surprised us with the other day. If you notice, she even included our handsome Crystal. He's gone but not forgotten.

Buddy, Merci & Sam are about to head out to give Jan a walk. We missed it last night and again this morning, so they're going to herd her out the door before the freezing temperature and winter weather arrive. Whatever she's doing can wait!

We thought we would share some bad news with you. Not our bad news, but the local VFW's. Two weeks ago the VFW and LAVFW held their meetings in the same room, as the ladies' usual meeting room was still icy cold a couple of hours after the heat was turned on. Jan was home around 7:00 pm. The fire department was called to the VFW building at approximately 1:30 am - about the time the roof collapsed.

Yes, you guessed it. The building is a total loss. Jan took some photos a week ago and although you might not be able to tell from these photos because of their small size, when she looked through a door or window, she could look right through the building and see the trees around it. Eerie.

The good news is that they will rebuild. But it sure was a shock to hear the announcement on the news the next morning.

Hope you are all having a good day.  


  1. Oh gosh!! I'm glad no-one was hurt in the fire!! What a shock for Jan!!

    Yay for Gracie!! Your blog header is lovely!!!

    Stay safe please! Take care

  2. At least nobody was hurt. What a mess though!

  3. What a sad story about the building! Glad no one got hurt!

  4. your header IS adorable! That is very sad about the building but as everyone else said, I am glad no one was hurt!

  5. There is no good time for as fire - but winter has to be an all time worse - the cold and stuff - has to be hard on those poor firefighters.
    Due to the early hour - I presume no one was hurt? That's good.
    Wishing then all the best for the redo.

  6. Wow, fires sure are scary and hot.

  9. That chair looks very comfy ~ be sure and all stay warm!

  10. Good day to curl up in a chair if you ask me.....

    Very tragic about the fire. Glad no one was inside.

  11. Yep, Rusty that chair looks to be tailor made just for you. We are so sorry about the fire, sure glad no one was injured or lost their life. Hugs and nose kisses

  12. The chair is definately your chair. Mostly it is all about possession and you seem to be in control of that now. Way to go.
    That was terrible that the nice buidling had to burn down. I hope no one was injured in fighting what horrible blaze. I am glad that they can rebuild.
    I am so glad that you liked your header and that your friends do to. I love making them and seeing the faces of all at your gang when the mom does them for me.

  13. We've had lots of big fires lately in the Minneapolis area. Some businesses and a some apartment buildings. The Red Cross says they currently are quite stressed for providing services because of all this. Glad they can rebuild!

  14. dont it just ruffle your furrs when the beans get too focused and something like icecycles start forming from our noses! that would be a good indicator that we need their attentions ! hehehe.

  15. That chair is definitely yours Rusty!

    Thank you for the Happy Gotcha Day wishes!
