John posted a picture of a shuttle he received from an aunt. He stated that he wasn't sure about the hook on the end.
I have a shuttle like his, here is a picture of mine.
you can't read the words in this picture, but it does say "BOYE" above the center divot and PAT April 10, 1917 below it.
here is a closer look at the hook
I had intended to post this earlier this afternoon, but farmguy came in and said he needed my help with a project. I thought maybe an hour or 2, but no, we didn't get in the house until after 9 this evening. we have finally finished supper and it is 10:20 pm. I am going to get this posted and head for bed.
I am several days behind in reading my blog list. I have been doing re-cert classes for what used to be called First Responder. the National EMS registry has changed the name to Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and changed some of the things we can do. They took away some of the things we used to be able to do, and gave us some new stuff. So, I have passed the written test, and taken and passed 3 of the 5 practical tests, CPR & AED, applying a non-rebreather mask, using suction and using a Bag Valve Mask. next thursday I will take and hopefully pass the Medical and Trauma assessments. Good thoughts sent my way would be appreciated. I am not a member of any of the local ambulance squads, I was several years ago, but decided that a 15 mile trip at high speeds to get to the ambulance garage to go on a call just wasn't safe. instead I am a member of our tiny local fire department only 3 miles away as the crow flies. much easier to get there. I don't fight fires, I am responsible for the health and safety of the fire fighters, and I am expected to respond any time the county dispatch sends out a call for a medical or trauma in the fire dept area as the nearest ambulance service is at least 20 minutes away.
