Hosers

Hey, Hosehead. Take off.
A fundraiser for the New Glarus Fire Department.






















And on the opposite side of the street, this.

    1. It was one of the happiest events I've seen. I wish I'd seen the kids compete in the park across the street.

  2. Such fun! My SIL started as a fire fighter, so I know of some the events they're having - love how the kids like it! Oh, and by the way, in Europe they sometimes use this method to break up crowds that are rioting. That water has such force that it knocks you down easily. Many thanks for sharing this fun event with All Seasons - have a cool watery week, Jeanna:)
    PS thank you for your kind comment last week!

    1. It's one of my favorite towns, great sundaes and brats with a sweet church that chimes on the hour. It's a Swiss town with lots of colorful fiberglass cows scattered about and one of my fav bike trails.

    1. It was surprisingly warm on Saturday with some humidity that stayed around until today so it was a pretty popular event. It was hours of water fights.

    2. I didn't know they had a CD out. I was burning CDs from old shows for awhile but I unplugged all the VCRs and CD players to save on space and sanity.

    3. It's funny how Dave Thomas was the man back then and along came Ghostbusters and Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Spaceballs and my favorite of the Rick Moranis flicks, Little Shop of Horrors.

    1. No but it's very close from the west side of Madison where I was dog sitting. Don't worry, they had plenty of time with me. Too much, some might argue, lol.

  19. Nice way to cool off and fund-raise, but I bet the water pressure was high. Ouch!

    1. It was a great idea although the food stand could have seen more business. I got a lot of spray and that was plenty, haha.

    1. I asked and they never answered, I'm thinking they need a bit more media savvy but it seems they have loads of community support.
