I thought I'd dust this place off a bit being as I have some idle time to spend.
For those two or three of you who happen to know me and stumble across this blog... well, I'm retired after roughly 42 yrs. of public service, 39 of it in the "Law Enforcement/Puzzle Solving" industry. I retired at 0001 hrs. today, the first day of October, 2014. It's an odd, bittersweet feeling.
Being as I'm done with public service I'm now going to dabble in the private sector for about five or ten years just to keep moving and keep my mind clear... Besides, the extra money will help us here at our house live with most of the creature comforts we currently have given all of the changes made over the past several years to our economy. But that might be another post some day soon.
Either way since June 9, 1972 my life up to this point has been a helluva learning experience. I've been blessed with the best family one could ever hope to have, true friends, an endless list of memories, experiences, events and an overall a great life!
Now it's time to move forward.
For those in the industry... there is a light at the end of that tunnel. Keep moving towards it but don't focus on it... you have to make it there to get there. So far, it's not that bad (but then again this is only 10 hrs. into my first day of the rest of my life).
Stay safe, learn from each other, teach each other, trust your instincts, trust your training, your judgment and by all means go home to your family when you're done for the day!
I'll be dropping by this site more often now that I have a bit more time to tinker!
