Barnacle Bill now renamed Barnacle Bob will on the Naughty Nancy (our pirate boat) in the parade this Saturday. I will be abandoning my pirate costume for one day only and travelling in a VW camper van in my 70's costume.
For a couple of weeks my fire alarms have been beeping at me. They needed new batteries, but were on high ceilings unreachable without a ladder - I do not do ladders. Someone suggested finding a friendly fireman. During my swimming lesson yesterday I discovered that Scott, my instructor is a fireman. I mentioned the problem to him, and this morning he and his mate turned up and fitted 2 new alarms for me. So many thanks to Scott and Carl for their prompt and amazing help, and all for free.
