various perspectives have been posted in Family Said, more this year than last; most disagree about something, normal and healthy for the most part. Everytime I read about some bad news that hasn’t yet made media hype, I say THANK GOD I didn’t get a phone call (worse a knock on my door or my pager buzzing). my kids have been in wildland for 10+ yrs; by the Grace of God, mine have been safe, so far. (x xx crossed fingers, toes & eyes)
after reading They Said before reading these posts, I am again compelled to offer sincere condolences to the friends and family of those FFs who are no longer with us.
to readers and posters in here, glad I sent my donation to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation = great organization and they quickly sent needed dollars to the families of our fallen compadres.
NZ MOM (wanna hear about the jumper in a tree last season? it was funny in retrospect) pray all our loved ones return safe and sound to tell their “war stories” soon.
