Thanks for the welcome. We fostered rescue bassets for a couple of years while they were waiting for a forever home, that was a great and heartbreaking experience.

I agree, never enough time in the day, but thankfully my commute is an hour each way which allows time for a cigar or 2 if they are shorts.

Can't beat good mess of mudbugs!

By the way, I've got a soft spot in my heart for firefighters - my son-in-law has been fighting fires here in California for many years. And I'm already in love with your Bassett, LuLuBelle.
Thanks Cheryl! If I was in California and alot younger, I would love to be a smoke jumper. Your son-in-law puts in alot of hard work.

My grandson is a firefighter. He takes his turn on what his department calls "the box." It is the town ambulance. He told his father one day, that he hates working on "the box." He wants to run into burning buildings. Not deal with people who think the ambulance is their personal taxi. He lives and serves in a very small town.

They recently had a big explosion in a chemical plant in the town where he serves. His vehicle was the first one to arrive on the scene. He grabbed the hose and ran into the building and the room where the explosion occurred. There was still areas that were smoking. He was all set to open the hose, then hesitated. His Hazmat training popped right in at that moment. The workers there started to scream. If he had put water on any of the areas in that room, the whole plant would have gone up in an explosion like they had never seen before. He dropped the hose and started to help the injured workers to safety.

Firefighters like the police never get the recognition that they deserve. My youngest son was a Paramedic for more than 15 years. And my granddaughter is married to a police officer who started his career as a firefighter. Serving the public just seems to run in my family.

I often will correct folks who call those like yourself, "you are a firefighter, not a fireman." A fireman is one who tends to heating systems and boilers. You are a Firefighter. With a capital "F". Thank you for all you do for the uncaring public until they need your services.
Thank Addie! I never liked "the box" either. It is great you have so many public servants in your family.
