Very nicely shot. Maintaining hydrants is such an important job that nobody thinks about.
Picturit: It is, Michael. I think that is one of the most important job, no water, that means disaster in case of a fire.

Working well in the heat!
Picturit: They are used to it, Cherry... and I hope they don't have to put out a fire soon...
Astrid.
Make sure those things are in working order!
Another great name placement!!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth. For them it is a matter between life and death.

Jolie scène. J'aime bien la boîte aux lettres colorée.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine. Yes indeed they did a great job painting it.
Astrid.
They always have smart trucks, same in the U.K.
Picturit: Don't you love those trucks, Frank. One day I was in NY and the visited the fire brigade that were the first to drive out to the fire in the Twin Towers, very very impressive.
Astrid.
Oh yes. As Elizabeth says, on both counts! smile
Picturit: A very important job, Ginnie. You never know if a fire starts and they should be prepared that it might happen.

With the amount of wild fires these days, it;s good that such systems are checked out. Well done on your fire service.
Picturit: Thank you, Alan. It is a matter of life and death.

Ils ont été sollicités dans de nombreux payx durant cet été

Picturit: Their work is never done, JP.
Astrid.
Important work too with all the fires in western North America.
Picturit: Indeed so, Mary. We were quite far away "in the boonies"...
Astrid.
Being close to a woodland I guess they need to make sure the hydrant works.
Picturit: Top priority, Brian. It is between life and death.
Astrid.
A vital job that needs to be done, Astrid. Love that you've included that colourful mail box as well. Looks as if the postman hasn't come along yet.
Picturit: I know, Beverly and we were quite far away from a nearby town so yes they have to check it. The mailbox happend to come with the picture wink, I focused on the two men grin.

that is quite a wide looking truck, would hate to get stuck behind it on a narrow lane, Astrid.
Picturit: My guess is that they have a lot of equipment in it and I might believe they have some smaller ones to go in between the narrow streets and remember this is USA.... "everything" is very wide.....
Astrid.
Gilmer R1 is getting a fill up Astrid... i like the painted mailbox....petersmile
Picturit: They did a great job on the mailbox, I think.
Also inspecting the hydrants is a serious matter.
Astrid.
Testing the hydrants I suppose.
Picturit: Yes indeed, Bill. Very important to know they are okay.

Dit lijk wel of die Astrid een oog voor werkende mannen heeft. I am actually intrigued by that mailbox, that seems beautifully done.
Picturit: Het was toeval dat ik die mannen van vorige week uit de gevangenis en deze brandweer mannen op dezelfde rit tegenkwam. I think the owner of the mailbox did a great job, it really stands out.
Astrid.
That's a colourful post box!
Picturit: Indeed that is, I noticed later after I saw this photo on the laptop.
Astrid.
LOVE your name placement!
