And I close this post in Long Beach where all the firmen from out of state who volunteered there after the storm surprised their local colleagues this weekend by driving down a van load of gifts for all their kids and families. It was good to see some of these rough and tough firemen in Long Beach finally shed a tear or two.

That's when you know that gifts are straight from the heart. Those are the best kind. I'm glad that you are still blogging. Here's to peace in these holidays!

Often the rougher and tougher, the bigger the heart. My brother is a firefighter/medic and it's sure the case with him. He talks the talk and walks the walk, but when it comes to abused children or stray animals, he's all heart.
I'm an EMT who's currently working in a retirement community rather than on an ambulance, but our reputation often precedes us in this field because of the infamous "gallows humor" which accompanies working with major trauma (something I'm no longer faced with.) Paramedics and EMT's are sometimes accused of being morbid and callous but nothing could be further from the truth, especially when it comes to children. The morose humor is a coping mechanism.
Oh yeah, and the DAF (dumbass Firefighter) label used by medics for their fellow emergency workers? It's a joke too!
Peace to ya,
The Cheesy One
