I can remember (at my age that is an accomplishment) A few year aft. I started (1979) I was riding a brush truck. The engineer noticed that there was smoke coming from the pump panel. We pulled over to investigate and a passer-bye stopped and said "when we have problems we call the fire dept., who do you guy's call" and sped off.

Hello Larry, thanks for your reply in the PTSD thread, I wasnt sure if I should reply or not being I am not nor ever have been in the services, I wish I had followed my families footsteps in the marines but I never did.

I was born with the name...literally!  The nurses named me "Moose" because i was 10 pounds, 24 inches long and didnt fit the cribs they had for newborns so they had to use an old incubator to put me in.  My father flipped when he couldnt find me, and the nurses calmly told him "Oh, you mean Moose, hes over here!"
