One thing that we don’t have here in the UK is fire hydrants which I think is a bit of a shame!

  1. Thanks! We painted ‘Snoopy’ on it about 15 years ago and he was getting pretty faded, so we made a change.

  2. It took me awhile to get used ot not seeing them after I moved over here! Maaaan, I wish I had one that looked like Oscar. That’s awesome.

  3. No surprise abut number 1, Oscar looks too happy there, but I love the flames. A tardis would be cool, and it seems any animal works with the ‘ears’.

  4. The minion was awesome – but not as good as Mario! So, you don’t have fire hydrants over there? Where does the water come from for the fire trucks? The post was great, but now I’m curious about how fires are put out!
