He runs the totally volunteer (including him) search and rescue team in a remote part of the province which has very rugged terrain and covers a large area. They have preformed very risky searches (some sadly recovery) and he was very heroic during fires in that area a few years ago. Our niece is a paramedic and the two of them worked on evacuation and rescue 24/7 while their own house was at risk.

We are so proud of our nephew and now so is our country!
That's just plain cool and awesome!

A friend of mine (I used to babysit him!) just posted something his daughter said today and it definitely made me smile. "I think Santa and Easter bunny are the same person in a different costume. It would be a waste of persons to only have them dress up on one day!"

My first smile was Friday night when my BIL came over for dinner. He and TB were in TB's office with their computers while I cooked dinner. My BIL was sitting on the leather love seat that Violet has claimed as her own. I walked in to tell them dinner was almost ready and there was Violet curled up on the couch with her head on his leg. It warmed my heart to see her so content!

Then today I went out and was gone for several hours. TB is back to work today so Violet was alone. She was so excited when I came home. So, after I had rested a bit and gotten something to eat, I decided I would try to take her for a very short little walk. She wanted to go full out, but she knew I couldn't and tried her hardest not to pull too much. I think we were only out for 10 minutes (TB takes her for 20 - 40 minutes at a time), but when we got back into the house, she gave me a sweet little kiss on the nose as if to say "thank you Mommy, I know that was hard on you but I loved it"!

cograts to your niece's nubby, lp! that kind of work takes a whole host of smarts, experience, and general toughness.
