Today, Captain Joe Schmoe of  Report on Conditions  will do something half assed….

He will only work half  of his tour.  He will only work half because it is his last.  Today Captain Schmoe will retire.

He has pulled his time and done his duty. He has survived to  return home  to his sons and the “Saint” that he is married to. I foresee many days of desert exploring and fire buffing in the old “el cheap-o jeep-o” … LUCKY BASTARD!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell the Capt congratulations, WELL DONE,  good luck and enjoy.  I also wanted to remind him of the twelve  words he will need to remember for his 1/2 shift tomorrow …

” Dispatch … send NEXT DUE. We’re out of service due to mechanical issues”
