I was in chat tonight and kept getting bumped off and then the page kept coming up unavailable so, no chat for me.

Nerd: I have an extrication story. About 3 yrs ago the local FD was having their essentials extrication class. My SO was teaching so I took three of the grandsons (5-6-10 yr olds) up to watch. All the Ff were decked out in their turnouts and I sat my little crew down on the concrete pad by the back of the bay to watch the crews cut up and beat on the cars.
They had 5 or six wrecked cars out in the field behind the station and are working really hard on a maroon Suburban just like mine. Usually I am reading or something else but because it was like my rig I was interested in how long it would take them to save me.

The six year old turns around and looks at me so puzzled and says’ Mimaw, how are we gonna get home?” Poor guy really thought they were cutting up my Sub…..I took him around the corner to see our transportation was still intact. g’mz
