I’m going to be taking pictures of the Ferndale Fire Department members for the web site. So today I started on my own. It’s hard doing a self portrait, checking for focus and making sure you’re sitting in the frame of the picture. but I think it turned out well. Speaking of the fire department, last night I started Firefighter I Academy, to learn more about the fire fighting side of what we do. I found out that OSHA requires you to be clean shaven where an SCBA mask meets your face, so I guess for the duration of the class, I’m going to have to shave the beard completely off. Glad I can keep the mustache, because I’ve had that since I could grow one, and it would really be weird looking in the mirror each morning and not seeing it.
