A Great Weekend OFF!

The weekend was great, home to North Texas to visit family and friends there aren't enough hours to fit everyone in. Friday evening, discovered I didn't have the blackberry charger! I survived until home Sunday evening with it turned off!

Saturday back to the "other" family tradition. This was the 57th year our family has participated in the Fort Worth Stock & Rodeo parade. Had a great time working with my son who didn't know I…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel Is Not A Train

I have been walking toward this day for a couple of years now. I have worked very hard for free for a lot of folks to get the rep and earn the paper.


This is the dream job. It's what I want to do and a job I have a passion for and I don't have to pay them so that I can do the job!

Here's a pic of the equipment I will be responsible… Continue

I need your help!

Alright everyone, it's time for the power of prayer and positive thinking, I have 2 job opportunities that are looking really good. One will require a move and that's OK because it's the one I really want. Everyone put out all the good stuff for me. Over a year without a job will send one into bizarre space and sometimes my best conversations are on the 2 year old level now. (too much grandson time)

Thanks all - Stay safe!

Say a little Prayer

Received word today the Capt Larry Thomas (ret) 28 year veteran of the Amarillo (TX) FD will be undergoing major spinal surgery this Thursday (10-31). There are some very scary possible side effects and the family is asking for your prayers for his safe and whole recovery.

Take care ALL, bring everyone home! You only have 1*, so take care of it!

What did I do wrong now?

Nuf already!!! I did what the docs have been after me and everyone else to do for years. I quit, cold turkey! No prob! Got through that OK. HOWEVER....since that time, I've had 4 sinus infections, and NOW pneumonia!!! After smoking all these years, quitting doesn't seem to be doing anything for my health except adding 40 pounds and making me sick!

Don't wait til tomorrow, that will be too late.

Don't wait to tell your friends how much fun they are, or how much you enjoy being around them. It may be too late.

Dry Run v2

We dogded the Dean, but this time Guvnr Goodhair pulled the trigger a little soon and had all the USAR Task forces sitting in harms way if it had come this way. I guess he's paying for all the Statewide mutual aide that's been sitting for 5 days waiting. A lot of unneccessary miles on fire trucks. Maybe he'll wait just a little longer next time.

Our good buddy FEMA Admin pulled his triggers as well, and now can prove that his improvements to the organization work! All in place and…

Dry Run

Well, we survived our first tropical storm of the season. I can't wait for Dean to drop in for a visit next week. I am catching up on sleep now. I'm a good boy scout, I'll be prepared.
