    Remember, you don’t have to be hungry to eat.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Chris yes, but now I just feel awful.

  • Chris's avatar

    You’re breaking my heart. I know how you feel though. Stay safe my friend.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Chris thank you, sir. Looking at a possible mandatory tomorrow. Great way to kill the holiday mood.

  • Chris's avatar

    Look on the bright side leftovers for breakfast. If you need anything let me know.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Chris surprise overtime as we sometimes call it. I appreciate it.

  • Chris's avatar

    @Derek no time like overtime

    You need to work those mandates to burn off all of the calories bro….🤪

  • Derek's avatar

    @Mike another good way to look at it! Haha.

    I also had some wild turkey but mine came out of a bottle!

  • Derek's avatar

    @DJ I wish I had some of that. The Fire Department unfortunately won't allow that, haha.

    But your family missed you.

    @Derek didn't know you were a smoke eater

  • Derek's avatar

    @Dave yes sir, although it seems like we do more ambulance driving anymore.

  • Dave's avatar

    @Derek true

    I’ve eaten many Thanksgiving meals at the firehouse table. But it is our second family so it’s worth it. TYFYS. Happy Thanksgiving.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Brandon absolutely. Thank you!

  • Chris's avatar

    @Derek you firemen are lucky, people are happy when you so up. Everyone loves firemen. On the LE side we respond to the domestic and then we’re the ones that ruined it.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Chris only job I've ever had where you show up to someone's house, break their stuff, and then they thank you.

  • Chris's avatar

    @Derek plus you get to cut holes in the roof and spray water on all their stuff.

    For Thanksgiving you’re not done when you’re full, you’re done when you hate yourself. 🤣 don’t work too hard today.

  • Derek's avatar

    @Tom trying not to! Haha. Mandatory overtime will do that to you.

  • John's avatar

    Looks like y’all ate good!

  • Derek's avatar

    @John we for sure did.

  • Robert's avatar

    That's great

  • Jerry's avatar
