Hey Gang,<P>I was playing ambulance yesterday. We had our butts handed to us in a sling. I had a severe case of flat a$$ syndrome from sitting in the drivers seat all day and night.<P>But, on to the point. We were coming back from a Philly hospital heading to the next pick up and I cut through town to gain some time. We were two cars behind one that looked like Vals buggy. Lately I see cars like that all over, go figure. Vehicle in front turns and I notice it is her. She turns into a shopping mall and I just drive past with an uneasy feeling in the gut. I haven't heard from her since last Thursday when I gave her the letter and card. I thought that WAS my reply.<P>We are almost to the next pick up and the truck cell phone rings. My partner picks it and says I think it's for you. Sure enough it's Val all happy and bubbly. She says I just noticed you were behind me and where are you going. Told her our desination and she said wait outside for a minute. I parked the truck at the ER and she was already there.<P>She was all smiles wondered how I was, how's my son doing in college, when does he go back, stuff like that. I asked if she read the letter and card and what she thought. Her reply was that she doesn't know how to take me sometimes. I said take me as your H that wants to show the woman I married that I love her and can treat her very well. She gets teary eyed and sees my wedding ring asking why do you still have that on? Because I am still married and commited to the relationship. I asked if we could get together and talk. She has classes M, T and W. She said TH or F. I got TWO nice kisses and a very sincere I love you.<P>Now, lets see if she calls and wants to meet and how well it goes.<P>I can still see the love in her baby blues. [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com] How could she not know it was me behind her? Not many cool people drive a big chartreuse vehicle with red lights and a hood that says "ECNALUBMA".<BR><P>------------------<BR>"It's not over till we say it's over! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? H*ll no!" Blutto...Animal House 1984<P>Wishing us all the Best.<P>Medic<P>

Medic, <BR>We all have been watching for your post. Good for you and our prayers are with you. By the way what brand of ambulance were you driving? I used to work at an ambulance factory maybe I worked on that very ambulance right her in the middle of Kansas.<BR>Greg

Hey Guys,<P>You could have knocked me over with a feather after she left the ER parking lot. I figured that since I didn't hear from her at all from last week, it was stick a fork in me, wer'e done.<P>Jim, Thanks for your Prayers and good wishes. Our time will come.<P>Paul, "The SandMan" [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com] You slay me!<P>Covenant, Thanks Buddy<P>Derby, You bet that if I don't hear from her I certainly will call. I really believe that she will. I have not seen her that happy to see me in quite a while. Well, it's either that or she had a really good time in class.<P>Desiree, Don't turn green yet. When she says yes to renewing our vows this July, THEN HULK OUT! [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com]<P>Bill, You would be surprised how many prople ask why it is backward on the hood. I tell them it's that way so we can read it from the inside of the truck. They walk away happy to know the answer. Alrighty then.<P>Paul, our trucks are the same color as the little icon guy who sticks his tongue out with white stripes. You can see us coming a mile away.<P>Falsely, Thanks for your kind wishes.<P>Susan, You are making me blush. Behave!<P>Di, I was really shocked at the call, kisses and brief but loving visit. You might say even defibrillated.<P>Lori, Baby steps will get me where I want to go. [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com]<P><BR>Just those few short minutes with her last night put the biggest smile on my face. I am moving forward with cautious optmism.<P>Will Val call and meet with Tim later this week? Can she come out of her fantasyland? Is that Brians car that just slide under a gas truck and tastes his own blood. [Sorry] <P>Stay tuned! Same Medic time! Same Medic channel! <P>I need to get some sleep, Really thanks guys for all your Prayers and best wishes.<P>Tim<BR>

Whoops,<P>Sorry Greg,<P>Didn't mean to leave you out there Bud. We have two Brauns. I was used to my volunteer squads Hortons when I started out 21 years ago. When I first saw the slant sides I thought the were the ugliest trucks around. Yep, they are so ugly I now own two. They move in and out of traffic nice. Sweet truck. <P>It's amazing how quick cars get out of your way when they see a big yellow truck head on in their lane of traffic.
