Honestly, it was a Network moment. I was mad as *ell and not going to take stuff happening to my family anymore at least not anything I could do something about.

Sidetrack, MM really never let on to many people about the RS illness and death. His very closest friends from college, maybe, because they all dealt with the death of a friend's father from brain cancer their junior year. I know this because I had dinner with the person who did his original training as a ski instructor and then knew him while he was working up there. This is someone around my age who adored both boys and had not a clue what he was going through when he was up there that season. His current roommate didn't know(I talked to him about Father's Day).

So this kid(as I think of him so of) graduated from college, had his father diagnosed with pretty much a terminal illness 4 months later, the treatment, the rest of us asking him to come back to CO to help cover me, worked his butt off to become a paramedic(doing a FT paramedic internship while working as a FT EMT), looked and found a fire job which he got,trained for and graduated to a probationary fire fighter job. Then he gets a wonderful nephew and ends up with about 6 weeks of intermittently hoping his sister doesn't die.

Lost phone, broken replacement and stolen bike. Enough already ! Money can fix that and so if necessary, it will.

Ketchup packets - pffft !
