It's Almost Game Time...



Don't get bored with me here folks the Caps game will continue the rest of the week. If it makes you feel any better there will be no playoff photographs for next week, Linda tried over and over yesterday to get tickets and they are sold out for both home games. That's what happens when you work in the child care field, oops I mean fireman and can't get off anytime you want. We needed to make sure when the games were and that someone would cover my shift.

A couple things I failed to mention when I started these post is that they were all shot with the Nikon D70, it is a much smaller and lighter camera than the D2x plus I have body armour for it since I take it along to work that I just felt more comfortable carrying it around the District. Also we were with our hockey and card playing friends the Holtzman's from York County.

There is not much I can say about today's photographs the top one is the beginning of introductions, the center photo is of pre-game warm ups. When we go to Washington we like to sit in a corner where the Caps shoot twice. And the bottom photo is of Alexander the Great. Alex has already won two trophies this year for scoring the most goals, and leading the league in points. He should get a third the MVP and with any luck will be kissing the cup in June.

That's all for now, its off to work, I got detailed this week to teach a new class of drivers pump operations. Yeah who would think a truckman teaching pumps. Maybe I am just a wagon girl trapped in a truckmans body.

Some guys get to goto INdianapolis and some guys get to teach pump class.

It is rather odd that a self proclaims "tuckie" would lower themselves to teaching engine grunts!

Nothing self proclaimed, 13 years of riding a truck, nevermind I have seen guys ride a truck for a long time and can't come close to be truckies.

I like pumps and enjoy teching them, besides I am getting ready for my last stop before retirement, driving a wagon.

What if the city got smart and bought a TDA? Would that be the last stop? Maybe the last run?

Bradley Myers said...

The city get smart, thats like me changing from beer to wine it will never happen. Besides there will be no new trucks in the city before I retire, except for T-1 that should be here in the fall. Being a handle puller and nob turner is easy, why not end their?

Wagon Master In Training said...

I see being a handle puller and a knob turner a prefect place to end a career in the fire service. I just wish that you were at the bar the night of my firehouse's 100 aniversity. You would have stood up for me against 3 follow Pa guys with following rank at the time 1 Capt and 2 Lt's about ending a career as Wagon Driver or 18 plus years from now a Wagon Master.

You will never see me move back to Shippensburg until it is time to get planted, and you can take it to the bank, I will never wear white.
