    Today has been an amazing day! After almost two months of nailbiting, I received a letter from Wilmington FD asking me to come take their written exam. I know it's offered to almost everyone whom applies, but even still, it gives me a glimmer of hope.

    Now, to make a great day ever better, I received an e-mail today from Monroe FD asking me to take their written exam as well!

    I can't believe my luck!

    The only sad part in all of this is that the exam for Wilmington is the same day I had planned to leave for Uhwarrie. That's not bad since the exam is at 9 AM. The bad part is that I have to tow my truck 4.5 hours home, drive another hour to Wilmington, then after taking the exam, drive another hour back the homestead to get my truck, then drive another 1.5 hours to Uhwarrie. But my reward will be unlimited destruction at Uhwarrie, so I can't complain too much!

    As always, thanks for the kind words! If you could only see my face right now. Perma-grin is what I'd call it.

    Thanks for the offer, but my house is en route to URE, so I'll just drop by and get it on the way back from Wilmington.

    Well, you might break just a few small things. For entertainment purposes. Congrats.

    Entertaining it will be. I'm bringing a helmet to wear for those moments that I want to be really stupid - not that there's much up there to protect......
