I am a paramedic for a private ambulance company. I absolutely love my job, the hours are long, the pay could be better but hey I get to do something I love. I am married to a wondefrul woman, wish I would have met her earlier in life but hey God always has a plan. I have 2 boys from a previous marriage, they are 21 and 18 and I am very proud of them both. My oldest is a senior+ at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo, CA and majoring in aerospace engineering. The boy is gonna be a rocket scientist,LOL and is graduating in June 2012. My youngest just graduated HS and is looking at a local community college after graduation. The LOML is a nurse in a busy labor and delivery unit. She also has 2 boys of her own that are 18 and 12. The 18 y/o is a handful and has some major psychological problems. He is also a liar, thief and unfortunately is headed for either prison or an early grave. It has been a challenge for me but I think I am gaining on them. My wife is a wonderful and caring woman and I cant imagine every being without her, she puts up all my crap. I dont know how she does it but I am sure glad she does.
I am also addicted to the outdoors. I love to hunt, deer, turkey, quail, elk. We also have a travel trailer and try to get out as often as we can. Due to the economy the camping is just something we cannot afford right now. But you can bet that when deer and elk season are open I will be in the woods. God Bless.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
