Hi Bob

What a sad story about Anne but maybe that was her reason for being.

Back tae Roy Rogers - as faur as ah kin remember Dale Evans wis his burd an his dug wis 'bullit' or wis that the Lone Ranger. Didnae go much fur Flash Gordon masell but a knew hunners oh them, they wid emerge every Seturday efternin screaming and yellin an thinking they wur the bees knees, runnin riot aroon us wee lassies. Ah well, that's boys fur ye. Ah preferred reading the Bunty masell while they wur awe dartin aboot like loonies.

Look forward tae next week

Annette

Hi Bob,

Surprise is always an element of your contributions. I'd forgotten "Flash Gordon's existance. Thanks for the laughter that contibuted to a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

The story of Anne made me sad though. Brought a reminder of a neighbouring shopkeeper's son. He was thrown into the Seine by a couple of nasty fellows because he didn't have the right geneological background. He drowned. How angry that kind of hooliganisme makes me.

Keep them coming.

To Annie

Post by Laura » Mon Jan 24, 2005 4:46 am

Dear Bob,

I first met Annie in 1978 when I took my first course in Industrial First Aid (Worker's Comp.) in Vancouver, B.C.. The evening classes were taught by a hardened paramedic / morgue assistant who used harsh, real-life examples to help us remember what not to do in first aid. He taught us well.

I complained for twenty years about our annual training sessions with Annie. (And laughed every time over the occasional misunderstandings about the requirement to "blow the dummy"...)

But twice during that time period, I had to use the things Annie taught me, for real. (Both involved young airmen who were careless inside the housing of a radar transmitter, where 30,000 Volts DC was present.)

Just a bright flash - and down he went - with heart and lungs at a dead stop.

In both cases - CPR got him started again within two minutes.
Both were back at work the next day - with only a band-aid over the small burnt spot on his hand.

Since our Annie was always purchased from the lowest bidder, it barely looked human... and androgenous, to boot!
