Let's Ride!!!!!!


« on: April 20, 2020, 03:04:21 PM »

I want to see you or yours!!

There are so many good people on the front line. This is my Godson and cousin! So proud and I know his Father is looking down upon him extremely proud as is my Aunt Susan.

About this time last year my youngest son, Marc Richard Madonia, proudly showed off the ambulance that he'd recently been assigned as an EMT2. This year, as Covid-19 has changed all of our lives and created "hot spots" of illness and death, he volunteered to be deployed to a hot spot to help fulfill his company's contract with FEMA. Ten days ago, he was put on standby notice which was upgraded to imminent last week. Yesterday, he and 25 others drove or rode in ambulances through the night from Memphis to receive their orders in New Jersey. They went across the bridge to the field hospital set up at the Arthur Ashe Tennis Center in Queens to pick up supplies and then past the Unisphere back to NJ and their assignment at the Meadowlands. They are just a few of the brave and accomplished men and women being deployed within our own United States to help in the war against an invisible enemy so fierce that hospitals are overflowing and new ones are springing up in parks and sports complexes. Please send up your thoughts and prayers that they will be strong enough to help as many as possible while staying healthy themselves. May God bless them all.

You must be very proud of them both.  They are heroes, for sure.  Stepping up like that to go into those areas takes a lot of courage.

Yes, Iím super proud.  Greg, Marc went to culinary school and was a very accomplished chef for a few years.  Got burnt out and decided to go to nursing school.   He took a detour to become an EMT2 and now wants to go to med school.

This is an excellent thread, with a lot of nice information.

Two of my daughters are Registered Nurses. Elizabeth graduated from Nursing School in Hagerstown, Maryland a few years ago and started her career at Chambersburg Hospital, a short distance from my office until I retired. A few months after Mary and I moved to Georgia, she decided to move here as well, and accepted a position at Cherokee Northside Hospital in Canton, Georgia.

Liz appears in the following photo with her cat, Zoey.


Mimi, who attended the 2012 maxi-scoots.com rally in Pennsylvania, graduated from the same Nursing School as Liz in January 2020. Shortly after graduation, she also decided to move south, and accepted a position at the same Cherokee Northside Hospital. She started her career in early February as this pandemic rapidly spread.

Mimi appears in the following photo with Hollis, a regular feature on another very large social media site.

Thanks for the reply. Yes we are very proud of them. Olivia, who also attended the 2012 rally, is here as well. We originally set up one of the cabin bedrooms as a craft room for Mary, and then as a distance learning station for Olivia and her U.S. Merchant Marine Academy classes.



We're not sure how long this will last but, the other day I received a stunned look and then laughter when noting her good fortune. While experiencing her post-secondary education, she gets to see her father every day. This must be a daughter's dream come true.

I decided to burn some papers instead of shredding them in out fire pit tonight and invited out daughter over for a visit. Her husband was on shift. He is on the CFD.  Karen had an exceptionally bad 24 hour shift on Friday with Covid 19 patients dying, along with gunshot victims.  When she got home her husband Ryan ordered her up a Baby Yoda.  This may be as close to a grandchild Bob and I will ever be     They have two dogs as well.  We had a nice visit this evening in our yard.  She is doing better.

You could do worse than a baby Yoda... It's got some SERIOUS extra curricular accouterments other than cuteness.

We as a nation have just held a minutes silence at 11am GMT to remember the at least 90 front line NHS staff and social care workers that have died so far from Covid-19 in the U.K.
