    Cool Welcome to the Front yard

    I started out as an explorer for a volunteer department in 1985. 17 years later I am a captain/paramedic for a full-time fire district here in the KC (missouri) metro area. Not every day is a good day, but even the bad ones aren't enough for me to do anythignelse in the world. The excitement of it all never changes. Whenever I say to myself, well I've now seen it all, God replies "Oh really!?" and the bells drop. If you ever want to chat drop me a line at truckie89@hotmail.com I love to tell war stories and all my firefighters are tired of all my old stories- LOL. If I have a regret it would have to be lost brothers. I have buried a friend or two over the years and that never gets easier. I always tell myslef that the last one was the LAST one,but I know it may not be. At least they died doing what they loved. Well, drop me a line and we'll chat. John aka "Irish"
