Catching up on a few recent photos. 4/5 – Spring is finally showing signs.
Or perhaps it’s moron sleep? A recent post over at Life Under the Lights triggered a memory. CK, I would say you were nuts, but I’ve been there. I have sleep apnea. I suffered with it for years before finally getting diagnosis and treatment. It would probably be more accurate to say that Mrs. Mack505Continue reading “More on sleep”
I don’t have it lately. Ideas for blog posts come, bounce around inside my head briefly, perhaps emerge partially onto the keyboard and Writeroom, and then disappear before reaching maturity. Some of my favorite reads are still at it though, capturing snapshots of the wonder and passion of life in public safety. Presented for yourContinue reading “Inspiration”
Just catching up on a few photos: From back on 3/8 – I’ve mentioned the new ride but never shown it.

Today marks the official end of Project 365 for 2010. When I started it on 1/2/10, I had no idea where it would take me. With all of the negative memories from 2010, I’m glad I have a positive photographic record. In the end I missed a few days, and a few others have multipleContinue reading “1/1/11”
12/28 – Minding the House while the other crew runs a medical aid.
Still Life in Blue, 12/21/10 The first snowfall of the year means the DPW is a bit slow on the draw, and everyone has forgotten how to drive in winter. We’ve been luckier than many local communities thus far.
12/3 – Cold afternoon, Merrimac River 12/4 – Sunset over the airfield, Lawrence Airport 12/5 – Hot horse. 12/6 – History lies forgotten on the floor of the firehouse. Box 12 was our last street box and was recently removed for construction. It will return as a master box, but there are no more streetContinue reading “Cold. (P365 update)”
