Sending thoughts to Arizona


Deepest sympathies to those brave men and women who lost their lives fighting wildfires in Arizona
It is sincerely felt by all who live in bush fire prone areas.
We pay tribute each year in our town to those men and women and their selfless bravery in keeping us safe.
Australia is deeply saddened by this tragedy and it hits us all hard..distance is no barrier.
Every year your brave men and women volunteer to assist our men and women when our fires hit.
Rest in peace and to those left with the loss I send my love.

  1. One of the hardest jobs there is – keeping people safe from fire or violence or whatever may threaten them….we salute the firefighters and police forces all around the world. What would we do without them? Lovely tribute.

    • Horrible damn things fires just awful,we spent a month away from home and the pets all in safe boarding during our Black Saturday fires…we have a very intensive fireplan for ourselves and all the pets..before summer I will do a post of the logistics involved,the things people need to remember,the things you don’t think of etc..the smell of smoke or watching these fires is enough to bring me to tears..it is like the stuff nightmares are made of.Thankyou for reading the post.I too hope people take care and take no silly risks.
