Holiday Hiatus

Thanksgiving

First, we have Thanksgiving dinner at Station 20/B Shift:
(Special thanks to Capt. Marcus Faske for the picture!)

Then we have photo #2, taken by BC Palmer Buck at the fire at Sambets Cajun Deli and Firey Food Store on Thanksgiving Day; 120 turkeys went up in smoke! Obviously, they didn't see our "how not to fry a turkey" demonstration:
