Next Sunday I'm hanging it up. 50 1/2 years. Fire fighting, rescue, medical, hazmat and a little welding in between. Wore the gold badge and bugles the last few years, now it's time for shorts and flipflops.

That's a longer run than a marathon sir. Congratulations on getting to the finish line.

If you get bored, post more of those pics of the valleys and lakes...more importantly, get out there and enjoy them!
