PLEASE practice fire safety this holiday season
I need to attend a funeral service this coming Friday for a wonderful couple who were very close relatives of my girlfriend. They were killed in an early morning house fire last Saturday morning, and the fire marshal determined the blaze was caused by christmas decorations that had been left on overnight.
Having only met them for the first time at their daughter's wedding last summer, I didn't know them well, but do know they were highly respected in their community. We should be celebrating this holiday season instead of attending funerals, so please practice fire safety.Always be willing to admit your shortcomings, there is no shame in not knowing how to do something. The shame is in NOT admitting you don't know how to do it.
If you have a small truck, limit yourself to small loads, if you want to carry the big stuff, get a big truck.
Never be ashamed of making a mistake. The only people who never (bleep) up are people who never try to do something new.

Re: PLEASE practice fire safety this holiday season
I am often guilty of being negligent when it comes to fire safety and have had a few close calls over the past few years, but I will definitely be taking much more care from now on.
Please accept my deepest sympathies to you and your girlfriend."The darkest time is just one hour before dawn" - Johnny Cash.
