Getting packed and trying to tie up loose ends around here.  Will be in Phoenix all next week to visit my mom, spend some time with her for her birthday and wish her a happy Mother's day.  Will also celebrate my 50th next Saturday at the Arizona Imperial Court Coronation with friends.  I fly back on the 8th to be at work on Monday and then Wednesday, May 11th I will be out on Fire Island working with the fire department as we do annual hose testing.  Got to run.

One more thing. I got elected 2nd Assistant Fire Chief just this week.  The vote was 50-2 and I also got elected Secretary of the Fire Department.  That vote was 44-5.  Only a few more items that I need to do now as the department secretary.  Wow, a few more minutes to type up.  lol  Like that will not take me a few minutes.

Wow, such a long month it would seem.  Have to be at work at 3pm.  We are doing a database upgrade this afternoon to the primary lab system.  Just need to monitor and keep my fingers crossed that all goes well.  Finished with Night of A Thousand Gowns in late March and have been very weak. Now that I am off of the drugs from my back (sub dermal cyst) I am getting better.  My back is fine but I am still very sleepy. Then again, had three fire drills on Friday.  Last one was 2am and taught Fire Extinguisher training to the security force.  Did not get home until the wee hours of the morning.  Did some maintenance on the web site and now about to head back to bed for a spell.  Alarm is set for 2:30pm so a few more hours will be nice.  Smokey is crashed out in the chair right now.  Paul goes to work at 5pm, so I will run him to work before heading to the lab.  Have to be "on-site" at 6pm.  Just on the phone prior to that.  Busy, Busy it would seem.

Went out to Cherry Grove today for a day trip.  Attending the Fire District Commissioners meeting.  Got the funds approved for fire hose testing. Something I was working on. Wrote up a nice summary on the request.  Now have to put that all together and make it happen.  Also taught several classes while I was there.  Left on the 5:25pm boat and headed back home.
