    I got a Thank You this Morn.

    Yep, you heard it right, I was welcomed with a Thank You this morning.

    Every year, for your holiday gift from our department/city we are given a Turkey and a Ham

    Well since they are given to us, I have always taken one and donated the other to the food pantry. (No sense in being greedy)

    The last two years, I know a pastor that runs on our EMS (Which I drive for) and I have been giving him the Turkey to give to a family in need. (Cant give the ham, wife can make a bitchen ham)

    Well this Morn I was on a call for the PD and he was running EMS, he gave me probably one of the more sincere Thank You that I have heard in a long time. He of course kept the family name confidential but stated it was going to be a good dinner for a family that could really use it.

    You know what, I almost want to donate my ham now.... but like I said my wife makes a bitchen ham so I am not giving in yet
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    Thanks BC

    My family is not the most well off, but we dont live a bad life, we do a few things a year to help out but a few more of them happen at Christmas time

    My favorite is the giving trees at the mall, I always find a little tike and get a few good gift that cost a bunch more than what they want use to give but for that little guy and or girl, (wife gets one gender and I take the other) will have a good X-Mas

    To be honest it is a lot of fun thinking about giving some kid you dont know a great Christmas that they normally dont or wont get.

    It is a lot of fun, small things make a big difference

    That's very thoughtful of you buddy!

    That tree thing reminds me of Shop with a Cop. You do that in your area? We did that a couple weekends ago. I got two kids and they each got to spend a hundred bucks on themselves and presents for their families. Proabably one of the best experiences I had. I bet over 30-40 cops showed up for it.
    May you rest in peace Daddy and may you never hurt again. I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you again.
