    You know, I read the apology and I thought it could be pretty sincere. I think he is just embarrassed....who wouldn't be. It seems clear he was not aware of or thought about the potential circumstances of the women working there and the charges are only related to soliciting so it seems the DA believes that as well. At 77 and being rich and famous getting a handjob at some seedy massage parlor is certainly a lapse in judgement but hey....................who among us can claim they've never done anything stupid when it comes to getting some. If he wasn't rich and famous it would get zero attention. I kinda feel sorry for him.

    So at a retirement gathering at one of the stations, 3 guys were punching out from that station at the same time. So the fellas chipped in a for a cake. They told the cake person to "write Happy Retirement.........then under that......Tim, John and Mike". They picked up the cake that morning brought it to the station and opened the box..................

    I cannot lie................although there was indeed a minor problem........I would not discount the possibility that the situation was............"amplified" for my discomfort and their entertainment. My fondness for flying in helo's was well known among the pilots and crew chiefs.

    Trigger Warnings

    Flying in one of our helos a preseason recon over my wildland area - checking access, fire roads, fuels, structure setbacks etc - had the doors pinned back and we were banked in a tight right turn looking one particular canyon when I hear the pilot say over the intercom “oh oh”. That is a trigger warning.....

    Chapter 27, or the start of the second volume? 27. It was actually kinda funny...........he was such an idiot we kept looking at each other (my partner and I) and suppressing laughs...........I mean as he explained what he did and why he called us after doing it, I looked at my partner in astonishment and when I did that he choked a laugh and then it was all I could do not to completely lose it. Made me wish it was possible to record it.........it was classic. He said he couldn't move his arm but I'm pretty sure he was bullshitting us about that. I thought at first he was bullshitting the whole thing but sure enough........there on the drill bit was brain matter. We still were skeptical but the ER Doc called us later and said sure enough he had done it.

    Perhaps the prosecutor is an ambitious person who will abuse the public trust to advance the career. Hasn't happened before. I've had a number of dealings with our local elected DA over the years.....3 of them now. Each time I felt like I needed a shower afterwards. The ADA's were pretty decent folks though.

    The framers often wire the guard back when trimming rafter tails...makes the job go much quicker...but I've seen a number of really nasty thigh injuries from guys doing that and even had one drop it in his lap with the trigger lock on. Very very ugly. You should see some of the trashed saws those guys use...... I've been shopping a new tablesaw and have looked seriously at the SawStop, even cut on one a few times at a cabinet class at my local Woodcraft. Its not a bad saw - at least the 3HP Pro wasn't - but it seems like a bit of a PIA in the setup. When you want to use a dado you need a whole different cartridge and have to change that out before you put the dado blade on and then change it back to go back to regular blades. Also you have to remember to shut off the "protection" if the wood is above some moisture level (I forget what %) or the thing will fire. And when it does fire, the blade and the cartridge are toast. I've NEVER had an accident or come very close because I am a fanatic about setting up and cutting safely......and that's over lots of years of amateur woodworking. Unlike guys who make a living woodworking, I have all the time in the world to setup and cut, so I take it. I'm leaning away from it because I think safe work practices and being deliberate in your cutting is really the only protection I need.....at least so far.

    Not familiar. Was it a TV series? I kinda stayed away from most of the darker themed shows and movies. Amazing what people will do. Had a guy eat Drano crystals and chase it with a Colt 45. He was a bit of a frequent flyer for a year or so with multiple exploratory attempts. Got the call around 10PM or so from the clerk at the 7/11 and as we walked up there he was sitting on the curb with the half eaten Drano can between his legs and the Colt in his hand leaning forward so the bloody foam and sputum could drain out of his swollen lips and mouth. I knew him from previous runs and as I walked up I said "Bobby...what the hell! Did you do this on purpose?!" He looked at me and and best he could manage he said "On purpose?! Of course I did it on purpose. I'm crazy not stupid!" Ultimately that attempt turned out successful.

    FOOD!!!

    Had lionfish on Salt Cay, they had a deal at (the only) restaurant on the island such that if you seared one and brought it in they would cook it up and only charge for the sides.......and the booze.........it was pretty darn convenient as the dive boat landed right there. Walk up and drop off the critter and by the time the gear was rinsed etc lunch was ready!! It was pretty ordinary grilled though. Kinda meh. The picture below is from the restaurant patio. That was a good couple weeks.
