Well, well old man. You still kickin' around. Not a day of service goes by that I don't think of one of the many, and I do mean many, words of wisdom you instilled in me. Many thanks.... And how the circle comes full turn... I am instructing in our local fire academy, something I watched you do a time or two. matt
