I thought the following picture (from the local paper) was fitting, considering this is Valentine's weekend.

Here's the story to go with the picture:

Marissa Long, Ada Evening News Ad-visor, received a surprise marriage proposal from David Morriss Friday morning. Morriss, a Pickett-Center firefighter and paramedic for Murray County, arrived at the Ada Evening News by Pickett-Center ladder truck with lights flashing and sirens blaring. Accompanying Morriss were co-workers in a second ladder truck. Firefighters, dressed in full gear, entered the building and escorted Long outside where Morriss was waiting with a bouquet of roses and a diamond engagement ring. The couple has not set a date for the wedding.

Yes, it's a small town thing ~ sweet! FYI, the Pickett-Center fire department is made up of all volunteers.
