I pulled into work and found about 50 clean and dirty syringes, plus huffing supplies. No one ditches clean needles, pretty odd.

Clean is the odd part?

@Patty Yes, those are gold for meth heads. But the drug kit itself being left was unusual, too.

Okay, so predictably I asked this because I had such an experience today & well…any excuse to tell right?

So this morning while out on my run, I heard the faint droning of a distant helicopter overhead, I mean obviously it was above me, where else would it be?
Anyway, the sound grew louder & seemed to be following me, before long it came into view, flying very low & by this point I was almost home.
Turned out to be our local air ambulance & it only landed on the grassed area over the road from my home!

I was a little disturbed at first as my daughter was at home at the time, seems some bloke had been run over by a car, It’s quite a major road, regular heavy traffic.
I watched from inside as the crew returned to the chopper minus a patient, the guy must have recovered a little at least & was out of immediate danger, which was a relief.
They then took off & the scene returned to normal, I turned to my daughter & remarked…

You don’t see that every day!”

This was a true statement!

@KNOWITALL Yeah, that is strange!

@ucme Just curious, how much will the bloke end up paying for the copter to come? Here that would be about 5k probably.

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL Ahh, well now, we have the dear old NHS & so he’ll pay a big fat zero!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme Wow. I would LOVE to compare the US actual budget with the UK’s.

@KNOWITALL Of course, if reports are to be believed, Trump is after buying into our NHS once Brexit is done & dusted on Jan 31st.
That would not go down well, think civil war & you’d be close :D

@ucme Glad to hear that you & yours are ALL well & as healthy as you canpossibly be!!!

ucme's avatar

@LadyMarissa Cheers, it was alarming when I saw the thing land so close to our house.
Just hope the guy recovers well, Friday 13th certainly bit him in the arse!

@ucme Please explain, I hadnt heard anything of the sort. Not that the NHS is bad, but that would be a very interesting twist for the Dems to combat.

At a busy 7 lane intersection, I saw a young squirrel run under 2 cars that were waiting for the light to change, emerge on the median for a moment, then as the light changed and traffic started moving towards it, run the rest of the way across the remaining 3 lanes without being run over.
