A good book.

Yesterday I was gifted with a book written by one of my Gentle Readers named Kelly Grayson.

Mr. Grayson is a paramedic over in Louisiana, and has written a book concerning his adventures -- and misadventures -- called Life, Death and Everything in Between: A Paramedic's Memoirs.

This book is funny, sad, thought-provoking, realistic, sensitive and chock-full of gallows humour. I stayed up well past midnight reading it, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is in Public Service or thinking of running with ambulances.

Thanks for the review. I'll stick it on my list.

Have a good Christmas Lawdog.

This should be interesting! I have worked as a firefighter/paramedic in the DFW Metroplex for about 14 years. I wonder if others get as weird as we do.

Thanks LawDog for the great entertainment, humor, and similar opinions to my own.

Well shoot, Mr. Fixit! I was in your neighborhood just last month! I did so many talks at the Texas EMS Conference they should have named it after me.

Stop stealing my lines, Grayson!

If you guys think his book is funny, and it is, you should HEAR him tell the stories.

Think Larry the Cable guy tells EMS stories.

Merry Christmas, Mr. 'Dog. I hope you have a safe, and given your line of work, particularly uneventful holiday. Thanks for spinning the yarns, and keep up the good work!
