embarassed

I am so embarrassed. I can not find my own blog. I go to Cynthia's blog, read it, then click on Megan's blog, read it then click on my own blog....but there is nothing to read there. It has been almost a month since I last blogged. Actually a few things have happened during that time.

I have been trained by CERT (Community Emergency Response Team). I would die if anyone actually asked me to use my training. However, a week or two ago, Connie called and said she needed help with a mock disaster. I said, "OK" then showed up expecting to be covered with blood and gore. You see, we were the victims. The local hospital and ambulance team needed victims to stage their own disaster.

My part was to act like I had driven through some chlorine gas. I was to be panicked. It was fun to sneak in the hospital when I thought they were too slow taking care of us. The emergency room was filled with all sorts of victims, including one with his leg cut off. The bloody leg (fake) was lying next to him on the bed. The whole exercise was a nice change of pace in my slow life.

Mary,
Oh my heck, how could you have had so much fun without inviting the rest of us?

I have to say I got a big kick out of the fake leg being left on the bed. Just my kind of hijinks!

So glad that you added a new blog post. You'll have to do another before you leave (as if you have time, ha, ha.)
