  1. Getting ready to go to my sons wedding rehearsal. Pager went off, two car accident 7 miles west. Left family, jumped in C4, lit it up and headed for accident. Two car head on, hill and curve. One car on the highway, one car beside it in the ditch. Never seen a head on where both cars came to rest so close to each other. 20 feet apart. Cannot imagine the violent impact. Some first responders on scene by the time I got there. I talked to the driver of one car. She was out and sitting in a chair. She seemed ok. Went to the next car, driver was out and crying. I got ahold of her and helped her into a chair. She looked at me and said "Jeff, how is my brother"? She was the girlfriend of one of my sons friends. It made this call personal. It hit me, I can't describe the feeling. I hugged her and let her cry. When she had calmed down some, I told her I needed to help her brother who was trapped in the car. I spelled an EMT holding the boys head. For an hour with our heads under a blanket to shield from glass and metal as they cut the roof, side pillar and pushed the dash panel off his legs to free him. I'm no EMT, all I could do was talk to him. Try to relax, concentrate on your breathing, slow it down. You're doing great. You got the best people in the world getting you out of this. I talked to him for a solid hour I was told as I tried to keep him from moving. I think he heard me as he responded to my talk. He tried to move his head and arms but had no strength. Twice he had the death rattle. (Anyone who has watched a calf die, knows what this is). I feel I talked him back, while they were working to free him. Got the side of the car cut away and the back of the seat removed, backboard in position and finally got him out. Life Flight met the Rescue Unit and flew him out. Talked to EMT said they almost lost him on the way but got him on the chopper alive. This kid was busted up bad. I know I'm not supposed to talk about this stuff, not my first bad accident, fatalities, seen em. But when that little girl looked up at me and called me by name, I melted. I don't have what it takes. You EMT's are true professionals, I'm a dumb rancher on a volunteer fire department. We put out grass fires. But we answer every emergency call no matter what. Thank God for the responders that came from 4 towns, 50 miles away. Better extrication tools than we had and a top notch Rescue Unit. We pulled the one car off the road and hosed it clean do they could let traffic move again. Wife waited for me and we made it to the rehearsal dinner but this one will be with me for a little while. You men and women who are EMT's, I could never come close to carrying your water. Thank you for all you do and May God bless each and every one of you.
  2. Used to serve a mighty fine steak. Musta been 80's
  3. I've had my butt kicked, chewed and slapped. Even had my butt grabbed by a big ol ham fisted gal in the Hungry Horse Saloon in Erickson, Nebr. But I don't believe I've ever been "butt hurt".πŸ€ πŸ˜€
  4. Tell HR in order to consider their request you need this report filled out.πŸ˜„
  5. I agree, hate wearing gloves. Just thinking is all. Put a little saddle oil on now so they're ready to go when the snow flies and I'm putting tire chains on the 966 and 656 when there's a foot of the white stuff on the ground. Can't seem to get them on ahead of timeπŸ˜†
  6. Mornings in the low forties, dug out the Carhartt to check cows. Got me thinking gloves. Have worn ropin gloves, yellow, blue and green fuzzies, cow, deer and elk. Usually had a hard time getting a year out of the leather ones. Young kid that bought the feed store said I should try these buffalo. Said his dad swears by them. I did and for the first time had a pair last the winter and go into the next fall. Usually wear out the fingers and the stitching comes out of the palms. Never know these had a winter on em. Just thought I'd pass it along.
  7. Really like her music and she is just too damn cute and I have a soft spot for '79 Fords, what more could ya wantπŸ˜ƒ
  8. Mader and Lorenzo, still thinkin' bout you guys. Hope healing is happening.
  9. A .30 caliber bullet in a modified .223 case can be loaded supersonic for hunting or subsonic for home defense/yard varmints. Subsonic works best with suppressor. It is an adequate cartridge for the distances your are hunting. It burns up the powder fast in the bbl so little muzzle flash and light recoil. Personally, I went with .308 in AR10 rather than 300 blackout (AR15) and .308 rather than 6.5 Creedmoor in my bolt guns. Why? I'm old school and stick with the proven calibre's. I don't drink much koolaide. BUT, you can never have too many guns and if the price is right, get it. You and your wife might like it and decide it the best thing since sliced bread. Don't like it, should be able to move it down the road and maybe even make money on the deal. Besides you meet the nicest people tradin' guns.
  10. No worries about the hijack! That is what this thread is all about. Grade school, jr high and high school football, basketball, track and some rodeo. I even learned about volleyball from a friend with girls. We traveled together and would watch the volleyball game before the football game. Traveled what seemed like a million miles following the kids around. Our farthest conference game was 204 miles away. Those kids played their hearts out and we laughed and cried with their wins and losses (and unfortunately injuries). The best of memories. After the last boy graduated, we was ready to take a break. Been out of it long enough, ready to start in again with the grandkids. I have heard of schools that want to eliminate their sports program. these kids learn so much from being on a team, I think the lessons are invaluable to their growth as young men and women.
  11. Not enough fingers and toes to do the math on 35πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
  12. 3 seconds left, score tied 26 all, Cody Kilgore Cowboys have the ball. Halfback pass, hail Mary from the 30πŸ˜†. It's caught! Down to the 3 yd line, we're in to overtime πŸ˜ƒ
  13. Would rather watch a Thursday afternoon game than Monday night any dayπŸ˜ƒ
  14. She was lookin perty goodπŸ˜„
