Old Derek must have been higher than a kite! I could hear the sirens coming forever!!!! I went out on the deck as the sirens got closer. Then all of a SLOW sudden there was this car followed by a large group of red and blue lights. As they passed the tree line in my view all sirens stopped and all the lights disappeared. It looked and sounded like a start of a parade. Then nothing! lol
