"That's cool, I've just never seen a truck so small before but I guess in the heavily populated areas of Japan you probably need something that small just to be able to get around."

"Correction to my own recipe. On the Dessert, they are not Mrs. Smith Pies, they are MARIE CALENDAR Pies. I don't know what I was thinking."

Don Johnson commented on Don Johnson's group Firehouse Recipies
"Now for Dessert. Apple Cobbler- Yes, I cheat on this one. Take 2 large frozen MRS. SMITHS Apple Pies, I like the ones that come with the Gram Cracker Crumbs, thaw both pies out first. Next, dump both pies into a large mixing bowl and add 1 cup of…"

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I started out as a volunteer firefighter just south of Lubbock, Tx and then found out that Fort Worth was hiring, so I tried and luckily enough made it. I love every minute of it, I enjoy helping people on their worst days and the simple thrill of not really knowing what the day/shift will bring since everyday is something completely new and different.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The Unknown of it all
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Right now, the biggest issue nation wide is simply the hope of being able to keep our jobs with the way the economy is and the way cities are cutting financing.

Howdy, Don. Don't recall if we've met. I used to hang out at 31's quite a bit and also used to produce videos for Friends for Fort Worth Firefighters with Robert Burn. Haven't spent much time at any FW stations lately, though. Stay safe up there.
