Wash it down

Entry Img

Lunchtime, one of my favorite times of day. I had made stuffed meatloaf, always a favorite with the guys. Wayne called them meat bombs, which I guess they were. A big ball of hamburg, a couple of eggs, secret seasonings, separated into twelve “bombs,” sliced down the middle, add some spinach and cheddar, an hour […]

The night before

Entry Img

Tomorrow we’d have a house full, but tonight, there was no stress, no worries, just the six of us. The aroma of butter, onions and […]

Focus

Entry Img

I used to take my ability to hyper-focus for granted, thinking it was something everybody could do if they were in my shoes. It isn’t a skill learned, nothing I had to study for, it just is. I read something about how sports stars do similar things, when the game is on the line, the […]

Hard to look up

Entry Img

He’s on the floor in his bathroom, the pain in his leg excruciating after a fall off the toilet onto the hard tile. His wife sits in the bedroom, staring blankly. He begs her to call 911, to get some help moving. She continues to stare. Eventually the people from the assisted living facility do […]

A Firefighter’s Life Well Lived 11/16/2016 By Michael Morse Before you know it, your career will be over. You may make it 10, 20, 30, or 40-plus years; it matters not, it goes by in a blink. I made it to 25, spent more time than I care to recall complaining about this or that, […]
