Takin' Care of Business

I cannot adequately express how much all the kind words, good wishes, and prayers have meant to me.  "Thank you" seems so inadequate at a time like this. I do have a little something for you, further below.

* * * * *

It's 5:03 am, and I've been awake, more or less, since the 4:00 vitals check and 4:30 blood draw. They're cutting me loose at mid-day, so here I sit. Gotta do something until the kitchens open at 0600, after all. :^)

Gracie has clicked the "Follow" button, so let me say "Welcome aboard, ma'am!" You're welcome here. I didn't see a blog listed with your profile, but if you have one, please let me know & I'll be happy to give it a plug here.

Finally, to offer a little bit back to all of you, here's something that's popular with many of you: more fun & frolic from the folks on Unalaska Island:

Suspicious Person/Activity – A drunken man phoned police and said he was naked, cold, and exposing himself to passing vehicles and in need of assistance. He was unable to name or describe his location.  Officers searched the common and not so common haunts of naked drunks but did not find the man in question.  No other calls were received from the man.

Criminal Mischief – Caller reported the rear window of his vehicle had been broken. Investigation indicated that an airsoft gun, kept in the rear of the vehicle might have played a role in the damage.

Trespass – Drunken homeowner asked that two women be barred from his home for the next year.  An officer reminded the drunk that he often makes such requests only to rescind them the next day, and told him to call police again when he’s sober if he still wishes to take that course of action.

Traffic Crime – Caller reported an erratic driver.  Officers located the sober but cell-phone using driver, who denied any poor driving, and advised him to not attempt to both drive and talk on the phone at the same time.

Ambulance Request – EMS provided care and transport for a patient who had been struck in the head with a case of frozen fish.

Noise Disturbance – Homeowner reported a neighbor was working on his vehicle, was creating a lot of noise and refused to turn off the engine when asked to do so.  After police were en route the homeowner called to say that the neighbor had ceased work for the night. 

Welfare Check – Concerned caller asked officers to check on a friend who was intoxicated and walking around near the landfill in clothing inappropriate for the weather.  An officer found the intoxicated friend, who did not desire any assistance but accepted a ride to her home.

Trespass – Homeowners asked that officers remove an intoxicated woman from their residence. The woman, who refused to leave their bathroom, berated the responding officer for his youth and his refusal to take her to the house next door before finally leaving the premises.

Thank you all very much; have a great day.

Any day you get out of the hospital is a great day - so you have a great day, too!

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Wing. When you're right, you're right!

OldAFSarge said...

Great stuff Rev, glad to hear things are well.

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Sarge. Other than resembling a well-used pin cushion, I'm okay. Of course, the day is young; I haven't tried getting dressed or walking very far, yet.

Glad you are going home today - take it easy, rest and follow your doctor's instructions - We need 'ya out there!

Rev. Paul said...

Yes, ma'am! :^)

Something about that smile makes me think we're going to need to keep an eye on you. I'm sure Mrs. Rev. Paul is up to the task - she'll probably trap you on the couch with a remote and a netflix connection, and any attempt to make for the door or for work will be thwarted by younger assistants with cupcakes....

Which will be awesome until you meet a Paid Torturer... um, I mean, a Physical Therapist.... thank goodness you were already exercising before they get their claws on you!

Remember to take it EASY, Rev. Paul.

Rev. Paul said...

Wing, your experiences with Peter have made you wise.

Rev. Paul said...

gfa, that's my firm intent. I'm only on any physical restrictions for a week or two, but still: walking is good, stairs are bad. Don't lift anything heavier than 10 pounds for a week.

Our prayers are still with you...and thank you so very much for a good laugh this morning. Take care.

Old NFO said...

Getting out upright is GOOD!!! And what's the backstory on the frozen fish??? Inquiring minds and all that...

Rev. Paul said...

threecollie, thank you for the continued prayers ... and I'm glad you like the Police Blotter so much.

NFO, upright is DEFINITELY a good thing, and sure beats the alternative!
Re: the case of frozen fish, I have no idea, but may be able to find out. If so, I'll pass it along to everyone.

They're good friends of mine.

Rev. Paul said...

TCA - good to know; thanks!

SENIOR said...

Glad you are doing better. Stay away from fried chicken.

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Senior. I never really cared much for fried chicken, anyway. :)
