      scratch his ears for me :)

  2. I'm with ER Doc here....not to pick on you...but I have NEVER EVER done this. And, as an officer of my department, if I ever catch any of my crewmembers doing this, it will not turn out well. There is no excuse for laziness. This profession doesn't need "lazy". The profession doesn't deserve it. The patients don't deserve it. If people want to do this kind of crap, then they are in the WRONG business. Guarantee you that would be a write up if I saw it. 8
  3. That's hilarious!!! Thanks for sharing Brentoli. That's a true Dustdevil post right there. I, too, am laughing through tears. Loved him to death.... 8

  5. Well....heck... Here goes. I'm an oldie as well. I originally joined in 2005 and spent many a day and night here chatting it up with the old crew. I left, and returned in 2009. Dusty and I talked a lot in the beginning, stayed in touch on Yahoo chat and then spoke again through 2009. I lost touch with him about a year ago or so, and the talks faded away. I SO regret not coming back to the City to talk with him. And, I too, hate that this is what brought me here. But just the same, I'll say my piece too. I know that my relationship with Dust probably started out the same as most everyone else's. I remember the first night I was a part of the "city". I wasn't in chat all of about 5 minutes when it started...he made a complete ass of me about one of my posts and ensued a hell of an argument between us. It took me milliseconds into that argument to decide I hated him! For those of you that remember me and my posts....I will tell it like it is. Dust and I had that in common. And tell him, I did!!! I told him exactly how I felt, and surprisingly, his answers pi$$ed me off even more. HAHA. As quickly as it came, it went. I found the more I talked to Dust, and the more I despised him....the more he intrigued me, and the more I loved him to pieces. It didn't take long for us to realize that we were on the same team. That being one of education, doing things right, and busting our a$$es in this business for the respect we all deserve. Dust and I had many many a talk after that. While everyone was cutting up in chat, we were chatting in private about some crazy medical topic. I think we just about covered it all, if that is possible. I'll never forget staring at the nipples while we talked seriously about this or that. I'd tell him. "Will you put a shirt on please...I can't concentrate." LOL. He would always tell me the same thing...that it was an excuse because I needed to think about what I was going to say. Smartypants. In the beginning that would have riled me up, but as time passed, I grew to love the ribbing, expected it...and most of it stopped. Dust and I grew to respect each other. I found him referring to my posts, copying and pasting my answers to newbies, and supporting my ideas and thoughts. I came to know him as an intelligent source of a wealth of knowledge, a partner, a friend, a confidant, and someone I highly, highly respected. When I learned of his illness, it broke my heart. No one should have to suffer in this lifetime, though we all know it happens, especially working in this business. But, it sickened me to know that someone like Rob, with all his infinite wisdom, would know exactly what was happening to him, as his disease progressed. These are a lot of words I write...but yet they are just words. There are no true words that I can put down on this computer screen to honor the kind of man Dusty was. We live a lifetime and may have the privilege of meeting a guy like him.....and he was my once in a lifetime. Dust...I will remember everything you ever told me. Thank you for the anger, the frustrations, the laughs, and for always pushing all of us to challenge ourselves. At the end of the day...you were just a regular guy with a heart of gold who would have done anything for anyone. The EMS community has suffered a great loss...and a void that can never be replaced. I'm sorry I wasn't here to speak to you in your last days. Tonight...the old gang was together in chat. I half expected your onry a$$ to pop in and stir some trouble. TIme passes so quickly...days turn into months...and years. Life is precious...We will never forget you and the mark you left on all of us. Rest in peace, dear DustDevil. EMT City will not be the same...but we will do our best to make you proud. Thanks for the memories.... xoxoxoxoxoMedik8
  6. Kicking myself in the rear for putting off coming back to the City to talk to Dusty more. It's been 6 years since I first joined and a good two since I have been here. But...here I am. Never too late to catch back up with old friends...Miss you Rob. :(
