Hey Roy: Glad to see you are in the game for another season. Seems like this has been a tough few years for a lot of families. You wife is awesome, she is so great to care so deeply for you. We woman can get really scared when our men folk are in danger.

I hope this year treats your whole family better. What else is going on in your life these days? Been playing on FFN much - seems like a lot of changing have been happening on here a lot of the old-timers got annoyed and slunk away to pout... plus summer hit and life got super super busy - so no time to spend on the computer.

Glad to chat with you. So very good to hear from you.

Your family is always in my prayers..
Lady Heather

Thanks. We will see. Time is a big deal in my life right now - I am nor sure that I can devote the amount of time fairly to the department. But there is always next year. I appreciate the affirmation of my return to the department and yes, I do have a lot to give - and love being a firefighter. This website has been me dipping my toe back into the water.

Hey Roy: Great to meet you. In regards to retirement, I served in VT. I actually moved out of State to WA, and had family responsibilities to attend to. When I wanted to join a new department, I just wanted to do EMS for a while to limit my workload, but the local department wanted me to do fire too, so I did not join. Since then I have moved to another State - CA - been busy with grad school. But I would love to go back and join my old department in VT. My brother is Deputy Chief of my old department, serving 20+ years. Of maybe if I can finish grad school, I can join another local department. We will see. I miss it a lot.
