This isn’t a real post, just more or less an update. As well as an invitation.
When we purchased a fire engine from the Town of Perry last year, we made a promise to return for their fire department’s 125th Anniversary Parade in June 2012.
And come this Saturday, we’ll deliver on that promise when we roll into Perry, New York with a shined up fire truck. Lights whirling, sirens blaring, horn blasting…and riders riding. If you’re nearby, you’re welcome to ride along just as these little elves did during the “It’s a Wonderful Life” parade:
While I’m not a big fan of $170 oil changes, owning Perry has been an amazing experience. As we pledged to do, he’s used for parades, fundraisers, and community events. Even more enjoyable, he’s used as a mobile jungle gym by area children and is well known as the coolest taxi in the area. The smiles that spread when I pick up Michael and his friends from school in our fire engine makes every expense worthwhile.
For those willing to make the drive, Perry, New York is a small town located about 90 minutes from Buffalo, 45 minutes from Rochester, and 42 hours from Los Angeles. The parade starts at 7pm and we’ll be pulling into town around 5pm. If you think you can make the trip and would like to ride on Perry during the parade, just let me know. If you do happen to live in Los Angeles, it’s probably best that you leave now.
So, think you can make it? Want to join us?
What if I sweetened the deal by offering up your very on plastic fire helmet upon arrival?
