I set off to the city of Allegan where my good friend Dave Rich was celebrating his birthday. As you can see from his picture he’s all about business in the front and party in the back. Sadly, my homeboy does not sport this do but if you look at him in the right light you can still see a shadow of where it once was. His head is now shaved yet still badass. I made sure to buy a small can of “Resurrection” which is an anti-hangover drink in case a had a little much. Luckily for me I was smart and stopped a long time before I went to sleep and what not so I woke up fine but the party was off the hook. When I arrived I was greeted by two ladies.
“Hi there…uhh..whoever you are…”
“Uh, hellooo to you too.”
I had a good chuckle because these two didn’t know me but when I made my way down to the basement I might as well have been Norm walking into Cheers.
The room exploded and I was greeted with open arms. I think my buddy Ryan even kissed me on the side of head. While people were yelling my name and saying hello, guess who also turned to say my name? Yep, the two ladies who greeted me first. They realized who I was afterward but the beginning was just funny. We celebrated Dave’s birthday with laughs, drinks, food, and a UFC PPV. The night was excellent and I even got to see a few sparing matches in the Dungeon of Rich. I also saw my friend Corina from high school who I hadn’t seen in years and we all saluted the birthday boy with a shot of Fireball. If I had to change anything, I would have left the chili alone. It was very good but it triggered my acid reflux something awful and no amount of Omeprazole could fix it. All in all I had a great time and I got to spend it with an excellent group of people. Happy Birthday once again Dave. May the world treat you with the greatest of respect and may you one day decide to bring back the mullet. Cheers!Post Views: 494

Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This will be the last episode in a series recorded at the 2015 Indiana NENA/APCO conference and expo a few weeks ago. I had a great time there and I hope everyone who was on the show or attended my class enjoyed it too. I met a lot of new people, visited with good friends and just had an all around good time. There is never a dull moment with the crew from Indiana.
In this episode I got the chance to speak with Lindsey, dispatcher with Fulton County 911 and her mom Lori, training coordinator with INdigital and former PSAP director. This episode was a lot of fun to record. It was the first time that I have ever had a mother/daughter episode and they hit one out of the park.
This is a must listen so check it out and share. As always if you have any questions or would like to be a guest on the show, you can send an email to email@example.com.
