Long time no see
« on: October 21, 2015, 12:33:02 PM »
Hey everyone.  Bet you'd never see me here again, huh?

Just wanted to touch base with you all.  I've been keeping busy. For those not on Facebook with me, let me catch you up.

My wife of 15 years, divorced me back in Oct 2013. To be honest it was for the best. She and I weren't getting along too well for the last three years.  A few years before that I left my job at Rural/Metro to work for another company that has a better reputation and equipment.  I've been at Patient Transport Services for almost 7 years now.  I can also tell you that I am so much better off being single.  I became debt free back in February and I'm not looking back. Thankfully, my step daughters Courtney (26) and Stacy (24) sill want me in their lives and I see them as often as I can.  I also get to see my grandchildren, Madison (9) and Owen (6) when ever I want.  So grateful for that because I really believe that if they'd ever push me out of their lives, I wouldn't be here today.

A few months ago my employer strongly suggested that I and my coworkers become duel certified in Kentucky as EMT/Paramedics.  I have been studying my butt off for the National Registry.  My exam is set for November 5. 

Once that is done and out of the way I will be spending the next year or so publishing the book I wrote back in 2004 called America's Most Controversial Drug Rehab. 

I attended my first ever Straight Reunion on Oct 3.  I HAD A BLAST.  It was nice to see familiar faces and meet some new people too.  It was a great success.  I can't wait til next years reunion.

Straight Inc. Alumni is still up and running, but much like this site, it's not nearly as busy as it was a few years ago.  Hard to believe it's been almost 16 years since I started that site. www.straightincalumni.com

Well, that's it for now.  Hope you're all having a great week.

Don
t\'s not for me to question How God will provide for my needs. I only have to Know that He will.

Hi Don.  Cool to hear from you.  I'm still around here sometimes.  Glad to see that you're doin alright. 

I was gonna run for president as the neo-abolitionist candidate, but just decided not to after all, just for my own sake.

All the best.
If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.
