Blog birthday

Some time in the past few weeks, my blog turned 2. According to my well-researched research, I started blogging in August of 2011.

I think.

This has been a fun road, and I am glad I took this route.

Thanks to you, the reader, for taking your valuable time to spend a few minutes a week here. I have met some wonderful people through this blog, and hope to meet more.

Thanks to all you other bloggers out here (or there?) who are an inspiration for me. I’ve become a better paramedic, and a better person, because of the work that the more respectable bloggers have done, and the words they have written. I literally cannot name everyone, and would be remiss to attempt, lest I forget someone. You are all important to me, and I appreciate you.

None of this would be possible without the patients and coworkers, of course. This really wouldn’t be possible without my dear friend and partner, Slimm. Everyone should have the opportunity to work with such a partner. Our partnership rivals that of Ponch and Jon, Starsky and Hutch, and yes, even that of Johnny and Roy.

Thanks for being here. I’m glad to know you.


  1. I just started reading you and am so glad you are writing this…you present the points that most people don’t see, don’t want to see..all while being loveable and giving a laugh. Thanks for all you do!

    It has been very interesting to see what you are writing and thinking, to hear your experience, to find out how much like me you are in some ways (horrors!) and how much not in other ways (better).

    Good writing, some of it great, and most worth that time I spend reading and replying.

    • Flash Larry says:

      HAHA. I just realized that I write in too classical a fashion. Which I knew already but I try to be careful. “Most” in my last sentence is a modifier and not a noun. That is, it means, it is “very much worth the time I spend,” as opposed to “most of the writing is worth the time.”

  3. Happy Birthday!

  4. It’s certainly been an enjoyable two years. Here’s to many more!
