    my retired aviator friend asked me to go out west with him to do volunteer work. I have multi-engine and instrument ratings and am qualified to fly high performance complex aircraft.  I mulled it over, but my entire family went ballistic over the idea.

    Since I had to live with my wife, who was a red-headed Scots-Irish nurse, I did not go.  There are times when I regret not going, because there were firefighters on the ground out there who needed air drops of flame retardant on the lines where they were fighting.
