  • Happy New Year!

    To the 6 or so of us left here I wish you the best for the New Year!
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    And the very same to you, sir.

    The new year brings something old for me - back to wearing a white hat. Thought I was done with that stuff, but some of the "up and comers" apparently had other visions and moved on. It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it...
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

            I suspect the old saw "May you live in interesting times" may come into play this year...

                  We were at the station as the neighbors had someone with a "smell of something hot in the area" call.

                      I retired from my volly FD at 0001 on the 2nd. You think they could usher me out with a working structure fire? Or an MVA? Or even an alarm call? NOTHING for over a month when I was in town. Talk about ingrates!!

                        Ya, somebody at a minimum could have called in that they thought they saw a cat in a tree.

                          I have been in emergency services for over 5 decades and retired in 2005. I find that if I lean back and my feet come off the floor, my eyes close and you

                          can log me off duty for awhile .

                            Nothing wrong with being able to shut down and relax.
