Guess it’s cherry popping time and you folks have mine. We have finally gone live and made the move to Fire / EMS Blogs. We have several other ”first times” tonight / this week as well. This will be my first post on the new network. My first time using “word press”. I got to speak with “Joe Schmoe” on Firefighter Netcast for the first time tonight and I actually shut up before I wanted to. Anyway,there are a lot of “first times” happening tonight and, I’ll get to all or most of that and more in a minute… First off I have to say THANK YOU! Thanks to all my readers for hanging in and staying with me all this time. It’s hard to believe that this all started from wanting to show a little bit of “firehouse” life from back in our Station #9 or “Melrose Misfit “ days. THANKS to Fire/EMS Blogs for having the faith in me to bring me over to the network. Thanks to Rhett ( Fire Critic) and Chris Hebert for all of their help and support. Thank you… thank you… thank you! Enough of the “love fest” for now. Here’s the post…
If you haven’t, it basically means getting your ass kicked pretty bad. Not only has someone “beat you down”, they then take the opportunity to rake their spurs across ya adding insult to injury. That’s pretty much how my last few weeks have felt like. Now, with the imagination I have; I can picture times when having the spurs put to you is not such a bad thing….
Either one of those gals can spur me anytime..LOL.. excuse me just a sec while I wipe some drool from my stache.. And, by the way; tonight’s post was supposed to be another first. The first nudity for Fire/EMS blogs. Unfortunately, Rhett beat me to it. Yea.. he sabotaged my site last night and put up these unsightly, over sized, way too greasy “ta ta’s”, “fun bags”, “boobs”, “boobies”, “hooters” “jugs”, “knockers” etc. Be warned…. it’s not safe for viewing at work but check out his cheap imitation of a post here. Ok, back to having the spurs put to me. As if everything else happening these past few weeks wasn’t enough, even the boys have saddled me up. Oh yea… they’ve rode me like a rented mule…
The damn thing is (or the ”irony” of it all for you more intellectual types) is that I’m the one who basically taught Opie and Coon to do the “riding” (aka..busting balls). Just look at the two of em…kicking and spurring
I guess last day was just “my turn” and the boys did it up good. BUT…. Little did they know. Monday was my last day for the foreseeable future with em. I took today (Wednesday) off and got the word at home that my next day, I’m to report to Station #13 on C-shift. GONE again!! A couple of notes here on the move. 1st. I asked for it. I didn’t want to but felt I had to because of the circumstancesaround our house. 2nd I don’t think I’ll be the only or last one to ask out of the house. 3rd I hate that I couldn’t take the “boys” with me and away from the environment they are subjected to. That said, everything will work out. Good things can’t keep happening to bad people.. that’s been proven all too many times. I am also confident in my boys and know that they can and will handle themselves as need be regardlessof whether or not I’m there. I have all the confidence in each member I leave behind as well as in the Captain whom will fill my position. Captain Martin is “old school” and will look after em for sure. We need more of that! Not just here but in the Fire Service in general. The days of “wooden ladders and iron firemen” are all but gone. Today, we have iron ladders and wooden firemen who are out for “number one”. THEMSELVES. Self preservation is today’s focus. Brother my ass! Ok, I’m not gonna get started on a rant. I wanted to simply take a moment to say welcome and thanks. I have a lot of high hope for the new site / network. Those of you who follow me know andunderstand that most of the time I’m “against the grain” and I’ll warn ya.. don’t expect less. The title of my pod cast my be “water hammer” because as usual, I plan to rattle the pipes. I’ll bring it to ya straight andsometimes, that’s hard to take but you’ll always know where I stand. Don’t forget to check out and click on the advertisements on this andall the network pages. Also friend us on “picture book” and follow along on “churp churp”. Stay tuned, I hope to increase the number of post. This “word press” is supposed to be easier once I get the hang of it. I enjoy the comments so keep them coming as well. I’ll check back in tomorrow… until then, stay safe and in the house.
