How to Give Directions

Seven or eight of the volunteer firefighters are engaged in hauling brush that a resident cut back around his barn — part of a grant-funded wildland fire mitigation project.

When it's loaded, the chief gives directions to the ranch where the brush will be dumped into gullies for erosion control:

"Go down J_________ Hill and turn left by the corral where they found the body."

And I have now lived here long enough that I knew where he meant.

I love directions like that. :) Around here, I tell people to drive down Penn. Ave. until they see the green tire on the step. :)
