Makes ya wonder.

While the brother-in-law is here for dinner, he turns the TV to a local station, and all the sudden he's on the news.  Apparently he was fighting a fire this afternoon, and the film crew came to film him.  It was a log cabin of all things so you can imagine how much of that survived. They show him holding the hose and spraying the place down, and of course he's not wearing his helmet or his jacket.  This is the same brother-in-law who told K that he doesn't wear a shield when he welds (sp?) because he just puts it on the starting point, and then turns his head and starts going.   Gotta wonder about him sometimes.
But while we're watching TV, his radio goes off and dispatch starts talking about an accident in another township.   Someone was out mowing their lawn and it resulted in some sort of amputation.  They didn't give details or say what was amputated, but it still makes me cringe.  The worst part about it was that it was 9:30 p.m.  Who in the world is mowing their lawn at 9:30 at night?
