Well, its been awhile since my last post. Been pretty busy with various things. So I had my first experience with Karaoke the other night at our local watering hole. What I learned is that the drunker people get... the better they think they sound. While I had a few drinks, I did not have enough to motivate me to get on stage.. I think I had a little Simon Cowell on my shoulder. However, two others that were with us got up the courage and got on stage. AJ for some reason decided Abba's Dancing Queen would be a great selection.I have some video of it which I will try to post. We were there celebrating David's last day of work at Ida Lee and Monday marked the beginning of his new career as a firefighter for Arlington County. If you want to know his business hours of operation.. just call his voice mail, its pretty detailed. Somehow, all that translates into David getting on Stage and singing Piano Man. Although, I will say he did a little better than AJ did. All in all, pretty amusing I must say.
We had a training burn on Sunday morning. It was a relatively cool day compared to what we have been getting. I can tell that me running every day is building up my endurance, however I was still "Balls Tired" as one of the other FF's put it at the end of the drill. Im sure most firefighters can attest to the fact that sometimes, the second that wave of heat hits you from a fire it can instantly zap the energy out of you. We did 4 scenarios and they all went relatively well. Despite some minor burns on my knees and ears, it was a great drill and I learned alot. Looking forward to the next one.
In other news, it would seem there has been a spike in violent crime in our county. Starting with the kids who got their asses kicked I mentioned in a previous entry, since then, we had an officer here in Leesburg get run over by a vehicle, a driveby in Sterling and various other stabbings, shootings etc.. Ahhh, reminds of Tucson. LOL.
There was some music awards show on the other night, and some guy who was up there must have thanked about 50 people.. except none of the people he named had actual names, they were all abbreviations or nicknames. It was pretty damn funny, Im gonna try to find a clip of it. I think I'll close out this entry with my "Shout Outs". But he did thanks Jesus.. Even used his whole name.
Well, Im off to the airport to pick up Maki. Higgins is still doing OK. He seems to be eating normally now. Hopefully he will put some weight on.
Thanks to J.B Anderson from JBA2.com for the Non Cam phone pics of the burn.
