    That's right, we were well behind the States in that field. He had a degree and had worked on Ambulance (a part time job) since 16yr old, so he was chosen for the pilot project. There were a total of 4 from Toronto and 2 from Hamilton chosen to take the education and he was 1st to graduate. I have a scrapbook on it. He had hair then too! Have a great long weekend. Lee

    He has this way about him that even in the worst situations, he seems to calm people, I worked in ICU so I saw him at work many times. Thanks for your kind words. Lee

    Thanks Carol, always appreciate your comments. Wish I could honour my husband as you did for yours in your last poem. My husband so calm and cool at any scene, he's amazing and in the almost 40 years working on the ambulance he's never had one complaint. Take care Lee
