I was reading the Family said and Tonya said that our SO’s might could be on the same fire I would like to get in touch with her. She said that I could get her email addy from Ab. I will try the refresh button before I go off line. Thank you for this web site. Its wonderful.

Fire Wife,
I hope you can work it all out with your SO. After my SO went to ID a couple of weeks ago and the thoughts of something happening to him scared me up. Especially knowing that after he had called me that those two heroic firefighters died. But I try to remember if it wasn’t for our fire crews on these BIG fires then who would do it? My SO loves firefighting and going on these crews. I have fought with him in the past on the phone and today I get ill that he hasnt called. BUT I cant get mad knowing he is huffing and puffing up and down those steep mountains. I hope you work it out when he calls again. My point is that you never know when it is your time to go. I keep thinking about what I read on 8/4 and I don’t want my husband remembering our fight. I want him to know how much I love him and appreciate him. Good luck on the house hunt. oh and im sure your SO will love that you got the phone. sorry Its so long.

Thanks for the input about the Kleenex fund. I had a big laugh. I’ve done pretty good this time around about keeping it together. The more he goes out, the easier it gets. He went to the crystal creek fire in ID then came home a week then left and went to the crazy horse fire, MT. It is hard on him if he sees me cry so I try not to cry in front of him. I cried when he left for ID but he didn’t see me BUT everybody at the airport did. I try to keep myself busy.

Bambi, I forwarded the e-mail from Tonya to your hotmail account. You can e-mail her directly. She says so.
