Hump Day Kick Start – Fire and Rescue Edition

Song of the day: Burn it Down by Linkin Park

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.




I might need the jaws of life. Can you fellas help?

Today’s prompt: smoke, fire, muscle, and gas-powered tools.

What’s going on here? Riot? Fast spreading wildfire? Arson at the junkyard? An explosive accident at the demolition derby? Did the beautiful, lonely pyromaniac start another fire and the two local heroes have gladly come to the rescue again?

What’s your take on this prompt. Let me hear from you!

    Ya know, pyromania runs in the Pistol’s family. This is not too far from the truth, Will.

    Cherry Brown was not a good cook. You might say that she was a notoriously bad cook. This year would be different, however.
    Last year she had caused a huge oven fire in her little cabin in the woods.
    Thanksgiving was looming, all the guests were coming and it promised to be the turkey meal of all turkey meals.
    After lugging home a twenty pound turkey she proceeded to place oil in her new turkey fryer. What could go wrong? After all, she had cleared the brush away from the cabin, summoned fire extinguishers and everything was going to be perfect.
    Easing the turkey gingerly into the basket, she closed the lid and went into the cabin.
    A few hours elapsed and lo and behold a sign of smoke drifted turns her house. Oh, oh 911 was frantically dialing and help was on the way.
    Moments later two manly firefighters approached with their equipment and promptly put out the fire.
    Cherry was mortified but comforted by Stan the fireman. He put his strong arms around her and whispered..”By the way, darling, there’s a roadhouse diner that serving Thanksgiving dinner all day.
    Next year Cherry and Handsome Stan stood outside their little cabin in the woods. “Darling, I saw a neat turkey smoker on the shopping channel. Maybe we could smoke our turkey this year.”
    Stan grabbed Cherry and drew her close to him.” There will be no smoking outside. All the smoking will happen in the bedroom this year Now turn off that dang TV and get the tv dinner ready.”

    Hooooo Mama! Love the pic, LOVE the song of the day. 😉

    Will try to get back here and think up a smokin’ story. (Get it??)
    Sigh. It’s just one party after another here in my new town. Who has time to write? Who thought I was this social?!

    Wouldn’t it be great if we went to a Linkin Park concert together, Sarah? Whoo boy. Talk about Burning it down!


  10. Ooh! Scorching! I could roast a marshmallow on those abs… And lick them off!
