More Space for "Candy" cited as need for $600,000 fire truck; Tales From Normal, Mn.: Fiction

Just got the text today from Betty Lou's Coffee Shop in Normal, Mn.---seems the guys were speechless this morning when they learned that the local Fire Department has requested a brand spanking new fire truck that has an extended cab, which will be used mostly for parades so that the firemen have enough space to store all the candy that they throw down to the kids on the parade route...mostly hard candy, but occasionally a miniture snickers...which I have always been partial to....and the stone faced fireman that made the presentation to the Public Safety meeting recently said that one of the essential roles of the fire department is to provide public relations...or candy and sugar...to the public so that they will continue to support the role of fire trucks in our community....There has also been some discussion since the new fire truck will not fit in the current fire department building, which is just packed to the brim with fire trucks, that we need a new fire department building, and one that has a "conning tower" so that off duty firemen can sit in the "conning tower space" during the weekends, and while not watching movies etc, can watch out for smoke on the horizon....Stay tuned as I follow this story.
