let the halloweening begin

Aaah, sweet success. I love the warm rush I get when I slide the last needle out of a project and find I am then holding a finished object.

I'm sure you've all heard or seen of the fires that are raging through Southern California. I simply can't believe that there are now 18 different fires and that the majority of those that broke out today are probably due to arson. If you've read my previous posts, you're probably aware that Husband is a firefighter. On Sunday, while at work, he and his crew were called up to join a team of 15 other firefighters and head down to L.A. The last update from Husband I received was via text message this evening: he's in the town of Fillmore protecting homes. He'll probably be up through the night working the line, only resting once he's pulled off-line sometime tomorrow. I'm thinking I wouldn't be standing after 24 hours, let alone lugging 60lbs of protective gear and a charged hose line around a neighborhood.

I am glad you heard from him and that he is ok for the moment... I too, could not stay on my feet all night.

i have been thinking of you and wondering how close you were to the fires....too close, i see.
i also wondered if your husband was close enough to get called.....i SO admire men/women who fight fires!
big hugs...

oh, and on a much lighter note....your socks are fabulous...i love that rush too...your husband probably has that same rush, but on a much larger scale.........amazing!
