Super hero? No. Just embarrassing

Last Saturday I posted on how I used my knowledge of first aid to come to the aid of someone in distress. (Thanks for the kind comments).
It actually embarrasses me that anyone would compliment me on something that I feel all right thinking people carry out .automatically to the best of their ability.

Today we had a birthday celebration for one of my son-in laws. Somehow the word had got round that yours truly wasn’t the lazy bugger that they all thought. They couldn’t believe that I actually walk up to the shop to buy a paper. No that was made up. They actually were impressed with what I’d done. However where had they got the info from?

It turned out that my eldest daughter had told her 3 year old son what had happened. (Who told her?) The boy had quite seriously asked his dad the following.
“Daddy. Granddad saved someone’s life. Does that make him a super hero?”
Of course that was put on daddy's face book page and excited interest in this old fogey.
Remind me not to walk up and get the paper in future.

Seriously though, if you get a chance to attend a first aid course, Go for it.


  1. Trouble is when you put it into effect you risk getting your arse sued off. Sad old world isn't it?

  2. I meant to congratulate you at the time but please accept my best wishes now and showing all of us that there are others who are prepared to get off the H&S fence.

  3. Is it worth having a go? Of course it is. If I, my wife or daughter dropped in a street and someone tried to help, I would thank them. If I could. BTW, in my job, I have had to hold a full 1st Aid Certificate for the last 15 years and have just done the pediatric and adult Defibrillator course. Always hoping I never have to use it. Still, Dioclese, I would have a go to save the life!

  4. That would be "one of my sons-in-law". Sorry to be so pedantic.............I'll get my coat.

  5. thanks Have given article Which is great.. I like your article and sukes always..thanks...
