Happy Birthday to Wonderduck, who had a very close shave a year ago.

About a year ago a new ambulance station went in, less than a mile up the road. So, my house is now between the ambulance and town, which means I have the occasional wailing sirens to cope with as the thing speeds by. I thought that was pretty annoying for a while, until my daughter had her thing and we needed an ambulance ourselves. They were on our doorstep about two minutes after my wife made the call.

I don’t mind the sirens anymore. A little noise is a small price to pay for being two minutes from life-saving medical technology. Gotta love those guys.

Glad you’re still with us, Wonderduck, and still anime-blogging. I hope you’re still watching anime and F1 racing when you’re 110.

    Shamus, thank you very much!

    In the grand scheme of things, though, the Cardiac Incident wasn’t nearly as dangerous as what happened to your daughter. I’m very glad she came out clean and okay!

    I was at work when The Incident occurred… and the Duck U. Bookstore is exactly 1.8 miles from Duckford’s #1 cardiac care hospital. Short of having it happen in the hospital parking lot, I probably couldn’t’ve chosen a better place to be!

    I just hope F1 is INTERESTING in 70-some-odd years!
