1st frost...

The 1st frost of the season came yesterday morning, Thurs. I also took part in the ride-a-long with the Leesburg PD. I'm hoping to hear from them soon to take my physical as I have passed all of the required tests. The ride-a-long last night was the evening shift which is from 2PM-2AM. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a position on the night (7PM-7AM) or day shift (7AM-7PM). The work schedule is wk#1 Mon, Tues, Fri, Sat, Sun, wk#2 Wed, Thu, with 1 of the days being an 8hr day where you choose to leave early or come in late. The ride wasn't too exciting, pretty much all the normal situations...1 suicide attempt, 1 illegal caught driving, 1 DUI, and random other nonsense calls.

Pictures from Thane's 3rd b-day - 17Oct2007

Here are some pics from Thane's 3rd b-day party. Julie was able to get the local fire department to stop by for the party. They had just enough time to chat and show-off the truck before having to respond to a car fire on route 37. Bart made the cake to go with the firetruck theme that Thane wanted this year.

Trick or treat

Here's a couple of pics from Holloween. Thane went with Scott from next door with their mommies while daddies sat on the porch handing out candy. Thane was a Spider and Scott was Thomas.

Projects changing

Last Friday I had test#3 with Leesburg City Police Department. It was the psychological test and review. I passed and I am now waiting for them to send me for a physical and finish my background check! I think they noted they wanted to have all positions filled with set-hire dates before Thanksgiving, so I should be hearing something very soon for the physical. I'm a bit out of shape, but I don't think it will be a problem. I plan to start riding more as I've only ridden a few times over the last month. However, my rides have included pulling Thane behind me in the Burley trailer so it makes it a good work-out. I'll be getting him today via the bike as well at the end of about a hour ride.

I've also completely finished the deck including the shed underneath it and the stain/water treatment. I'll be placing lattice around the deck bottom in the spring which will conceal the shed from view.

I hope to begin work on the Vette again soon as well. I plan to re-build the entire suspension this winter once it is too nasty to drive it anymore this season. Currently I'm touching-up the drywall in the theater room and preparing to paint it.

I'll post another update soon!
