Gary, that was me, alright. Nothing hurt except my pride. I was standing with the R.I.T. company when my feet went out from under me. Turns out we all were standing on some ice that sloped just little bit towards the street. I guess the two years of physical therapy worked, at least that part about how to fall.
I had planned to stop by yesterday. That is your shift day, isn't it? Well that didn't happen so how about I try for Thursday? Got the pictures and want to deliver them to you guys. Stay safe!
Steve, sorry I did not get to talk to you at the fire the other night. I just wondering if you are O'k. I thought I saw you slip on the ice ( was that you?) If so how are you doing? Give us a call at the station. BE SAFE !
Hey Steve, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I need to talk to you about some pictures of fires up there. Doing a truck class and I know you have some great shots. Give me a call or email. Take care brother, Rich
Long time no see old pal! You'll remember me from our Wheaton days. I worked with you and your son at the local college. Good to see you are still kickin' I'll have to see if I can post a couple of pictures of you from the good ole days.
Steve, heard that you've been down for a little bit. Hope you are feeling better and hope to see you on the fire ground soon. Take care and give us a call at squad 1 or soon to be squad 2 for lunch. BE SAFE!
