EDM Challenge #66
Draw a fire hydrant

Very early one morning, over 20 years ago, I was helping my boyfriend, Ralph, type up an essay when we heard a huge explosion and then a very strange noise. We crept outside, and there, down the street, was a surging fountain! We walked closer to inspect and found a car with a fire hydrant wedged under the front. The driver had fled - most likely he was intoxicated.

How amazing after all these years, I should be prompted to think of that night and even draw it. Ralph and I are now married and our children stay up late to finish university assignments!

And the circle goes round and round. Great memory drawing. My Ralph and I have been married 29 years! Good men, those Ralphs!!

Well, this is certainly a different take on a rather mundane object. Great job.
