    It was 4:30 yesterday. I don't anticipate for it to happen again in a long time.

    Time is relative to the company you spend it with. If it is your crazy relatives that will not leave, time slows down to an almost immeasurable crawl..

    I have a feeling that Thanksgiving is being taken hostage by retailers trying to bump sells before Christmas.. What happened to looking forward to football games and playing cards with family after dinner. Now, everybody talks about Black Friday sales and what time they are going shopping. Most stores around here are opening late Thursday night. It is great for the retail business to have the excitement... but I prefer to get excited about the thought of hot apple pie from the oven, and sleeping past 6a.m. on Friday....


    I just realized that I am becoming my grandpa. Sorry for the rant..


    Pass the dressing.. It won't happen again...

    Yesterday was a quiet day in the county with only one "lift assist" call for our small department. I guess all the crazy folks were sleeping after their Thursday night, Black Friday shopping sprees. Maybe there is some positive to this year's dash for the retail cash..

    Thumbs up For All You MARINES Out There

    The Woman Marine Pilot

    The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment:

    Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.

    The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories.

    There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved.

    But then the teacher realized, much to her dismay, that only Janie was left.

    "Janie, do you have a story to share?"

    "Yes ma'am. My daddy told me a story about my Mommy. She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife.

    She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break, and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops. She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.

    ''Good Heavens,' said the horrified teacher. 'What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?

    "Stay away from Mommy when she's been drinking."


    Spoken like the True Kid Of A Marine!

    I thought the moral of the story was that an empty whiskey bottle won't break.

    Red face

    Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her reception class pupils put on his boots?

    He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on.b By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

    She almost cried when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong feet." She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as, together, they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet.

    He then announced, "These aren't my boots."

    She bit her tongue, rather than get right in his face and scream, "Why didn't you say so?" But once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner were the boots off when he said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mum made me wear 'em."

    Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again.

    Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?"

    "He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots."



    She will be eligible for parole in three years.

    My Christmas shopping is done. Now we wait for a hurricane of paper ripping and "ooohs" and "aahhs" from the flood of energy that is my niece and nephews... Christmas time is here. May each and every one associated with the fire service have peace this holiday. May the call box stay silent, and the only fires be those of comfort and warmth. God Bless!
