You still working for them?Sr. District Commander for Austin-Travis County EMS. 1100 square miles of terrritory, a million people (metro), 300 children (paramedics),30 ambulamces, 90,000 emergency responses a year.
Proof! What can I watch?It would be interesting to see if the people from 15 years ago are still doing the same things.
I appear and star in Hollywood B movies. It was never the plan until about 3 years ago but is really starting to work out. Before that, I did a lot of other things. Life can be interesting. We will see what happens next
Kinda wish I would have gotten into healthcare at this point. Seems like it would be nice to have a career helping people daily.Work as a nurse for the past 5+ years, started in ICU, now in the ER.
Was working as a paramedic when this thread was started.
I might need a old d5 one day!Guess I missed this thread , I fix things , started in trucks then moved to heavy equipment , got tired of bosses in 1982 and started my own shop , been there since , built on my property in 1985 and am still there , that’s the only way I can get to work in the morning , walk across the driveway . Don’t work near as hard as I did these days and really wouldn’t if I could get away with it . Last several years I’ve been restoring 30 year old construction equipment , new construction equipment is kinda like bmw s , running with about a 10% failure rate so contractors are very happy with a frame down restoration of a 30 year old machine for 50,000 bucks instead of new at 150,000 that is almost guaranteed to see a major failure in less than three years not counting all the idiot crap the epa has added to them , adding to that is the fact that help these days is not up to the task that new equipment requires for daily maintenance . It buys nice toys and lets me escape the Texas heat for a month or so , works for me .
I should add in that while being retired and back to farming/ranching, I married up as Tourmiester stated in a different post.
I’m old fashioned and met my wife in second grade. Just friends and went separate ways till I saw her one day when she was a cashier at a store. Dated, married and we put her through skool to get her masters. Now she’s got a big wheel job to help buy my toys. Will be 30 years married this year.
Hopefully everyone adds in a bit about their better half to give a lil more about who we are.
congrats and kudos for sticking with it through better and worse.Ok, since talking about wives...I've only had one and I met mine when she was a freshman and I a junior in high school. Our first date was a tour thru a haunted house on Halloween, 1975. We just celebrated our 37th this last Wednesday.
I remember the name, can't place the face. Ask if he remembers Doug Basinger, I was a Reactor Operator in the Control Room. I was on watch when we did the initial start up of Unit one reactor. Don't be surprised if he didn't like me. I was hard headed and impatient in the old days. I tried to be nice but youth and inexperience challenged that on a regular basis.It’s Joe Bagley sir
