Even my wife thought that it was funny! I just hope that that’s a joke, or you might be end up in a “hostile” work environment.

Or go looking for something else and you'll find it in stead. Also, buy a new one and the old one will show up. Jim Rogers


Long story short lost my phone Friday cancelled the sim card Friday night ,bought a new phone Saturday. Sunday morning Rhonda and I are sitting on the couch, Abigail my 18 month old grand daughter walks over and hands me the lost phone , so Rhonda got the new phone because I like my phone and it takes me forever to learn anything new.

Got the call from the tree service just before dark last evening that they could be here in the morning to take down the Maple that is hanging over the shop.  Not that big but way beyond my not dropping it on the roof.  So, in my haste to move the horse trailer that was parked in the work area I hooked up the truck and took off.  Forgot to disconnect the power cord to the trailer (brand new one last week). Ripped it off the trailer and trashed the end.

The phrase haste makes waste was coined many years ago.  However if you wish to accentuate it over and over go ahead and be my guest.  Before I move things I like to take a walk around said equipment and see if I forgot or missed something.  Frequently avoids hours of unproductive work, or opportunities to get reaquinted with what few tools I have.

Back before cell phones a friend was on his way home from his teaching job and the truck broke down. His wife who is a nurse was going to be coming by in a bit so no worries. Now she had pulled a long set of shifts and was driving home 2 hours from the hospital. He see's her coming, waves his hands, then arms, then jumping up and down in the middle of the road behind her. He said he could see the glazed stare, she was heading home on fumes, she never saw him  :D.

It was one of those days at work.  I ruin a pair of shoes a year usually with trauma.  today was one of those days.  placed and order for a new pair, and the last time was June 20, 2020.  I always have one backup pair of leather shoes.

Sorry Doc, that ain't good. I don't think its dumb though, just part of the job. I do recall a job or two where I had to strip down to my skivvies (and change) then red bag the clothes before driving  home. Many more times I would throw my gear in the back of the truck and hang it on the fence and hose it down, then hang it in the shop to dry. We didn't have a washer in the firehouse then. Hydrogen peroxide does a great job of taking out the blood, just soak it in a tub for a while.

Hosing down everyone's bunker gear in the driveway of the firehouse as a probie....don't miss those days!  Probably still isn't a washing machine in that firehouse... :(

Yeah, in my early days we never cleaned our gear.  If we did it was just a quick hose down.  Now we put our gear in the extractor after every fire and get out our spare gear.  Trying to cut down on the risk of cancer.  Back in the day we couldnt afford extractors or a spare set of turnout gear.  Cancer costs a lot more.

yes soot and smoke from fire has carcinogens, just like that inhaled in cigarettes'.  The chimney sweeps would employ orphan boys back in Victorian England.  they would be small enough to get inside a chimney.  many of them got cancer, covered in soot head to toe day in and day out.

A few years ago I had a really nasty calving ended up soaked to the skin smelling really foul... I wasn't  that far from home so I stripped down to my boxers and threw the dirty clothes in the back intending to stop by the house and shower quick before returning  to the clinic.  It was only six or seven miles back.  About two miles from the house I met of course the township guy maintaining the road. Got a really funny look from the road grader operator......  ::)
