While I don’t think any of us can define “the brotherhood”, and really I don’t think we should have too, I believe we all know what it is not…and by avoiding what it is not, we foster what it is.

Sorry you couldn't make it to the show last night. Sorry I should have kept you more up to date. We'll still have to go out sometime.

I wish I could go to Maine...... the new baby is due in June 13th. I think the wife would be upset if I left a few days later. Just tell everyone you will be taking my place! They'll tell you what to do! LOL

I too wish we had more time to talk, we'll meet for a beverage soon!

You going to FDIC?

Part time department? Well, well. Becoming a two-toner, eh? Good on yah, the missus not keepin' you busy with honey-do's?

I'd be happy to send you some Memorial stickers. I know I have your address, but send it again. As for the BC position. Well, I did a really good job of convincing the board that I really like being a Captain. I wasn't blazin' a trail to be the BC. My heart wasn't there, too soon after the funeral, not wantin' to drive the fire SUV for the rest of my life, ...I dunno. Greg Coon of Kenai, (formerly of North Star Fire back in the day) has won it, and we'll see him around the end of the month.

By looking at the news this week end, your department has been very busy. Any news on the investigation of the fires?
