In a small Texas town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. But one small feature bothered me: the three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left.

At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You dang Yankees never read your Bibles!"I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and riffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said, "See, it says right here, 'The three wise men came from afar.'

When they see me coming, they start looking around to see what's available to reinforce the stage.

Fort Meade. Just a bit north of where Cindi is located. Do a Google search for Florida Flywheelers. I tried it earlier today but the site must have been down for some reason.
