Heroes in Action
I may not live in Gotham City or Metropolis, but yesterday I saw some real life super heroes in action.
My sister-in-law, aka VisionGirl, spotted smoke coming from the brush across the canyon. She quickly notified my brother-in-law, aka WaterMan. Faster than a speeding bullet (and without bothering to find a phone booth so he could twirl fast and put on his cape and mask) he jumped into a water truck (it’s one of the big construction site water trucks, he’s been using it on his orchards and for other projects around their new rural home). Before you could say “who was that masked man?” he was at the scene, spraying the fire with gallons and gallons of water.
Soon after, more caped crusaders arrived in Batmobiles, which were cleverly disguised as fire trucks, and even two helicopters!!
The evil fire was banished within the hour, and its devastation limited to only one acre, thanks to quick and heroic action by all.
