More "oh, yeah..." Mom says she doesn't know where Dale is and doesn't want to know where Dale is. She's just going to assume he's still in Winthrop. Apparently there isn't a lot of need for smokejumpers on the complex of fires in Colorado. She thinks they are holding Washington firefighters in reserve because of the fire threat up north. Of course, the moment she said this she contradicted herself and said the the preacher at Ellisforde church has son and daughter both out fighting right now, and at least the son is in Colorado. Apparently he called home the other day and told his dad that the fire line his is on is directly across from Storm King, and when he looks across the valley, he can see the memorial. I got shivers just typing that sentence.
