    Hunter, that saddle will be a long time coming; if/when it happens, I'll run to you for advice! @ this moment, just have fingers crossed for where to go next..Stan: EMT: emergency medical technician Basic, one step below paramedic (& much less $, like a licensed practical nurse compared to a nurse); peace officer: we're not exactly "security", but more like community responders to whatever (as well as basic "security" stuff like locking/unlocking doors etc). Our motto is "Custos Cuminos" (Guardians of the Comunity). We do everything; medical ERs, helping maintenance,patrol..the list is kinda endless. I can go from a D.O.A., or basic-to-extreme medical to someone needing their keys because they left theirs in their apt & are locked out. Can be a very weird job. Community is about 3800 people, many elderly, many newcomers of babyboomer age (which has created more neighbor disputes/traffic issues (& alot of not knowing how to be nice playing in the sandbox). TG we have, recently, a training officer to go-to for debriefing; I've never had that (6 yrs on the job), & have had many D.O.As. Nice to get it off one's chest. Does that explain a little?

Thanks all for the "western" support, I do think that's where I need to go; very idea of that saddle is comforting (as is Australian; I had one & sold it. If ever can have/need a saddle, I'll be looking @ Australian..but that's in future-thought). Right now: just need candles/prayers that my spaghetti-trying will manifest soon. Really appreciate you guys, you're great. Oh: my weird job is an EMT/peace officer @ a large "active adult" community.
    Maybe me sharing my personal stuff will deflect from the drama. So here it is.


    TJT, If I could go buy another pack, I would so do that, like yesterday. Sadly, I am 37, don't have kids of our own, but would like to, we've been foster parents for 6+ years now. I've been burying my head in the sand about my lack of fertility, and so I went to a clinic this week with hubby, Brad.

    I was told it would just be an info gathering visit, but then I was on day 5 of my lady visit, and apparently that's the perfect time to scan.

    So they scanned. They wouldn't tell me anything, but I have issues, many of them I heard them talking about. When I asked, I was told, with smiles, nothing to worry about - screw them, I heard what they said.

    Something is up with my uterus lining.
    I have two cysts on my right ovarie
    Endrometriosis
    And my antrical folical counts are 4 on one side and 8 on the other.

    So basically I am doomed.

    And the killer, is that I have to give up cigs for 3 months before treatment - so at this point, I am giving up for no reason at all, as I don't even think it's possible we can have kids. When those Drs tell me that, I am smoking in their waiting room, while they explain the rest to Brad.

    Oh, AlexS, maybe not "doomed". Cysts can be removed. As for the other,..I don't know. But stop smoking then. Kill a barn door or something inanimate. It's possible, your own baby, don't give up, not yet. My heart goes out to this hard place for you...stopping smoking is horrible, but keeping smoking is worse (talking to myself). This post may not help, but here's someone out here hearing you.

    O/k I will insult every body.

    I walked past a white kid sitting at a bus stop as I went into the bank. When I came out, he looked at me and said “Any change?”I said “No, you're still white”.


    When I cross a padestrian crossing, the ones with the white paint on the black paving I am often heard saying. Now you see me, now you don't. Now you see me, now you don't

    Bruce, I promise that I was only making a joke. Geez. I'll not pick on you again. The other guys are much more pickable. I humbly apologize. I am not even remotely sexist. I am often full of crap.

    ...only thing about being an EMT-B is if one gets there before the paramedics (the gods), you do what needs to be done, & they do the fluids & monitors. Can be weird, in between lock-outs & "there's a dead squirrel by by lanai" or "my neighbor is shooting laser beams into my bed @ night" (yes, that happens; over & unregulated medication of the elderly & not-so-elderly..meds, I swear; the same paranoia issues over & over), or "my sink is backed up!" or...or... There ya go. I really need this 4 days off, to remember I have a life, & figure out, w/Divine Guidance, how to get back around a horse.
