OK, Everybody is posting bad news on their sites..
Subliminalkoolaid is talking about the tornado in '99, Kim DuToit is depressed about the death of a second friend this year, (and rightly so, sorry for your loss Kim..)

I have decided to post HAPPY NEWS!

I got the results from my part time test..

I am tied for third on the eligibility list. This means as soon as my Firefighter I certification is here, I get one more interview, (my Chief's interview) and HOPEFULLY will be offered a position.

This weekend is a shooting competition, and the Lovely Wife shoots for free, because of Mothers Day.

I am getting my new tattoo on Tuesday next week!

My best friend is meeting up with me at the Annual Washington State Search and Rescue Conference in Leavenworth, WA. in a few weeks.

There! All sorts of good news!

  • Barrel: 22", Twist: 1 turn in 12 inches, right hand, four-groove Std Carbon Steel Barrel

Work, work, work..

They hosed my schedule this month so I am working all sorts of odd hours, mostly 12 hour night shifts. I kinda like it.. I have worked 24 hour Mondays for the last 18 months, so this is kind of a cool change. Anyway, I am off to the station.. PIG pic is ready to be posted tomorrow, so watch out for it.
