Fire Jumps Accross 10 Lanes, and Me.

I hadn't been driving (truck) for more than a month. Almost 14 years ago. I was on my way to LA. We had just gotten the all clear, when I started towards LA. I was at the top of the pass when the fire jumped the freeway. It was five lanes on each side. The whole hillside went up. The inside of my truck got so hot, I started to sweat. The weirdest thing, was seeing people stop and take pictures. Me, I just wanted out of there.

Remember, if you got it, a truck driver brought it. Through sunshine, rain, snow; and occasionally through a fire storm.

It just did it again.

Why I Live Alone

Date: I just want to cuddle.
Me: Oh okay.
Later that night...
Julian! Your foot is on fire! (Note: As a rule, I sleep on the left side of the bed, against the wall. Living alone, I tend to take up the whole bed. Unfortunately, my date wanted the left side, so I said okay. Not aware that I was sleeping on the right side of the bed, my foot was hanging off the side of the bed. Thor wanted some target practice)
Out of habit I rolled once to grab the fire extinguisher, and fell flat onto the floor. Flaming foot and all. Based on the scream, I don't think I found the fire extinguisher.
Opening my eyes, I did locate the correct object for putting out my foot fire. ...and proceed to do just that.
My date, looking at my smoldering foot, remarked, "That's looks bad!"
My reply was, "Wait."
About that time there was a knock on the back door with the utterance, "EMS." My favorite lady paramedic came barging into the bedroom. She looked and my foot and remarked, "Again?" She dressed my foot, with a real doll dress, gave me shot for the pain, left activating the alarm system on the way out.
My date looked at me, my foot, me again...
and left.
*sigh*

History, July 5th

Let's see:
Another noisy 4th in the books,
Another pilot-less parachute in the back yard,
Down the street, something that was suppose to go up, went sideways.
Meth-lab across the street, is no more.
Got my loan modification.
My aunt passed away.
Something had me for lunch.
Windows ate itself, again. (Found out why)
I'm done. I'm looking forward to work, tomorrow.

Another Pilotless Parachute

Once again a parachute descended into my neighborhood. It landed into my neighbors trees.

Another 4th in the books.
