Hey Wes,
What's going on bro. I wish I had some god stories for you but things have been quite lately. We're catching some fires but by the time we show up the irst due have pretty much knocked it out. Bastards! Congrats on your upcoming wedlock. I wish I could give you some advice but I'm divorced so you probably don't want any advice from me. Just learn to say "YES DEAR, WHAT EVER YOU SAY" and "YOUR RIGHT AND I'M WRONG" I wish you all the best. Talk to you soon

Hey Wes,
What's happening? The class in Texas was great. Lot's of work but I actually understand structual collapse better than I ever did. That's quite the place down there. They have everything. When I finally get around to downloading my pictures, I'll send a few your way. I wasn't on for the Lobster business fire but I had the train collision the night before. It took us 7 hours to extricate the operator. She was DOA but it took everything we had to get her body out. Our dept photographer took about 200 pics. I'm waiting for a copy of the disc. I'll send some of those also. What's happening in Wilson? Any go jobs. Talk to you later. Holler at the boysfor me

What's going on Bro? Not much up here, still waiting for weather to change. That's sad when that's all we have to look forward to. Heading for Texas this week (Texas A&M) for the structual collapse school, looking forward to it. Say hi to the boys from Wison and I'll holler at you when I get back.
