    And the imaginations were that fertile, those of us on the truck had to wear our boots when we got back to the station/bar.

    I think this little party happened at Malahat Fire / Rescue Station 1, not that close the GraveyBucket, but has the same spirit, just not as many toothless women... although the sheep population is a little skiddish...

    Anyway, I don' think it was black wool... had that fine silk feel to it... and I found the garter belt in the inside pocket of my turnout gear jacket.... Good thing we didn't get tones to a structure fire... would have looked funny trying to use it as a flash hood....

    ROFLMFAOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

    I'd forgotten all about riding around on NJ's back in the living room! But that would explain the big bruise I had on my butt the next day. Must've happened when PFire pushed me off NJ for her turn!

    I believe TANKER had the camera during the wet t-shirt contest!!

    And I could swear Superchef was wearing black stockings at the beginning of the party!! hmmmmmmmmm .... wonder who she was fooling around with in the truck?? HEY!!!! remember when the siren in the truck kept going off??? NOW WE KNOW WHY!!!

    I do vaguely remember seeing 26, 27 and Kiwi taking turns trying to climb the flag pole in the wee hours of the morning. NEVER laughed so hard in my life!! Have you ever watched 3 guys drunk as skunks trying to climb a flag pole without putting down their beer???!!! When the sun came up I noticed a bra hanging from the top of the flag pole, not sure whose it was (NOT mine, I only wear a bra to work) and I have no idea at all who finally made it to the top.

    Memory is a bit fuzzy for some strange reason!!

    Well, the story I am getting from Two-7 is that he seen me climb up into the cab with someone, couldn't see who because apparatus floor lights where off. We figure that like a well trained Firefighter that I am, when I climbed into the cab I automatically put my accountabilty tag on the dash.....

    I don't think it was Superchef because inventory showed that all the ropes where still in their respected compartments.... however, my mind is a little fuzzy so I could be wrong...

    RspctFrmCalgary: Yes, now I do remember the three of us trying to climb the flag poll.... if I remember right, two-7 was the one that made it to the top (must be his advanced canadian military training or something). Not sure how he did it withing dropping his beer...

    Sorry, I had this vivid mental picture, and then realised you had written beer with "ee" not "ea".

    Thanks everyone. I've got more welts from that riding crop than Carter has pills. Who was the joker that decided to wear spurs? And my knees have got all carpet burns too.

    Every time Two7 cranked up that Q2B siren...Temptaker grabbed my hair and yelled, "The Kiwis are coming, the Kiwis are coming!" Someone else would yell...."The henhouse......protect the henhouse!" Oh, and thanks for making me drink the Guiness out of the troth....that was a real classy move.

    Who's got the negatives? Boy, that lady can RIDE....!!!

    That was me yelling protect the henhouse.....right after I put the dish towel over the sink to make the kitchen look a little cleaner.....ya know...all those dishes. NJ, I brought the spurs, but never used.....sorry. I seem to recall a pair of leopard skin boxer shorts hanging frm the flagpole....that ring a bell to anyone?

    And 26....your accountability tag......try superchef cake. You said something about a jailbreak, needed your tag, bake it in a cake...just like on TV.

    How did everyone like the barbeque? Chief Reason and I were hampered somewhat because we couldn't find Superchef to ask her for help. There was quite a feeding frenzy going on, what with all that other activity going on. Lots of calories were burned (and consumed).

    How ironic that EVERYONE decided to drink and post in the forums at the same time!
    As far as the dishes go....When I cooked, we used paper and plastic, so I know it isn't my fault.

    Hey 26, as I recall (lots of grey areas during this entire incident) when we were returning from the MVA, it seems to me that you said you were just going to "leave my tag right here, ya know just so I don't have to remember it for the next one." There was something about "..that way I won't have to call shotgun..." or some such as that.

    The stockings: I have no viable memory of anyone at anytime either wearing or removing said item and nor do I have any knowledge of how they got tied around the air horn cord........

    As for the flagpole climbing, well I thought any self respecting beer drinker could do that. I will admit that it does take a lot of practice to climb that long stick with only one hand. As for the attachments to it, well that is another story entirely.

    Thinking about the gear lockers on the trucks, before this got too far, I very much remember putting locks on all the vehicle doors, just cuz, ya know how us FF's can get sometimes. Especially since 26 and I had plans for the henhouse and all. Wouldn't want a piece of important gear to be "misplaced" somewhere when we needed.

    CJ - FF26 was teaching me how to tie knots. I think he knows how to do at least 15 different ones.

    Superchef, funny you should mention tieing knots and FF26 in the same sentence. You are absolutely correct, he can tie that many, just don't ask him what the name is or what it might be used for. His memory is a little fuzzy that way, but he can tie anyone of them in the dark, with his hands behind his back.... Ya never know when a skill like that might come in handy.

    Ah... that's where it went. The bra at the top of the flag pole would be mine, I remember taking if off half way through the wet t-shirt contest. Never saw it after that though, I don't know who actually put it up there.

    I would like to know who body checked me into the LARGE mud puddle. I remember bringing Kiwi, 26, and 27 another round. On my way there, someone with a lamp shade on their head tried to take the beers, struggle ensued, 26 came and rescued the beers, the next thing I know I'm mud wrestling. Too much mud to tell who it was after I finally got the lamp shade off though.

    I do remember lying on the ground at one point watching 27 climb the pole, he was holding the bottle between his teeth. Everytime he looked up, he had another drink. I'm sure the bottle was completely empty before he even got half way up.

    I've got the negatives

    So it WAS you.

    It took me hours the following day, to get the mud out of the sheeps wool.

    It had the lamp shade on as camouflage, so it could get at the beers.

    Hey Temp, I don't think the bottle even lasted that long! The flag pole is only 10 feet tall.

    The mud wrestling I remember taking a dive to make a distraction from the beer tray, but someone was sitting on my head through most of that one, so I didn't see much of what went on.

    I don't really want to say much about how the bra ended up on the flag pole. Suffice to say that it was really difficult to climb the pole in a "head down" (in the army we called this the Auzie Style) method........ Musta been the sheep's pelt that brought that one on.
