So after we finished roasting, my mom went upstairs to get a container for the coffee. She glanced out the window. A lady with a dog was looking at our house, and when she saw my mom, she ran over. Mom invited her to come in. She is a new neighbor who was walking her dog around the block and noticed an unusual odor and saw smoke coming from the side of our house. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah, sure. Are YOU okay?"
"I just called the fire department because I thought your dryer vent was on fire! There was smoke all of the place! Your lights were on and your TV was, too. I ran around your house calling but nobody answered so I thought you weren't home. And then I called the fire department."
To the rescue they came! Sorry for the poor picture but that really is the fire truck. Mom explained that there wasn't a fire, but the firemen wanted to come inside and check things out.They saw that everyting was under control, and since they liked coffee, we gave them some. They even posed for a picture before heading back to the fire department.
