Like everyone else who has posted about it, I loved
the poem you wrote. I printed it out and have it
hanging above our desk. Keep posting them!!

I learned something the other night from my FF… When
the guys are on a fire the one thing they hate more
than anything is to be asked “when are you coming
home!!” I always ask it because when my husband
leaves he usually doesn’t know when he will be home
again. It could be a few days to a couple weeks. He
usually doesn’t leave with a specific date in mind. I
guess I will have to be more careful when asking

Thanks… FireWife

That doesn’t seem like an unreasonable question so long as you ask it for information and not in a “clingy” or “needy” way. Sometimes we won’t know the answer, but I never minded that question.
