so the roof of the hotel caught fire tonight. the alarm went off as it is wont to do and we all trundled outside to be greeted by ten fire trucks and about 60 firemen. an impressive sight. no one was injured so we had a stoop party for an hour and a bit and we got back in without too much fuss. rico’s baby son roddy was quite a hit with all the lady folk. his big blue scottish/costa rican eyes like tiny tractor beams of benevolence. he didn’t make a beep bless him. cutie pie.
nyc fire service: heroes the lot of them!
anyway back indoors now after the excitement. off to bed. sleep tight tigers.gL
ps, i know i look like i’ve got a really dirty hand there. swear to god it’s a trick of the light. x
Glad all worked out ok, could’ve been a very different outcome. I’m thinking San Francisco, glass elevators, chair lifts and helicopters with Steve McQueen and Paul Newman thrown in for good measure…..
Think I may have watched The Towering Inferno one too many times. Is it a wonder I always request a hotel room on the 6th floor or lower?? I’m told the ladders only stretch up that far….
