Okay, not sure if this is the right forum, as it's a mix? As many of you know, I recently retired from 30 years of flying and 20 (okay - 2 months shy)years of aviation/law enforcement thanks to my lovely spine and its continued attacks!
Well I opened the mailbox today, and in it was a small USPS Priority box - small. I have been waiting for some music CD's from eBay, so I scooped it up, and came back in the house. I then saw the 'senders address' and realized what my "CD" package was. I opened it up, and in it is my last badge I carried with the 'retired' rocker now on the bottom of it below my now 'former title'....
Depressed? Well... Not so much as a clinical or long term thing, it just arrrhhh.... finalized in my head that I am officially off any threats to the workforce as I won't be able to ever do that work again, and as such, others do not have competition! (G) My new job is whatever I decide to do, and to concentrate on the family and hubby and my kids (cats!) and of course, my health.
Law enforcement is a unique family. We are all brothers and sisters regardless (most times) what agency you work for. Retired folks maintain in the family, but it's different, I've already felt that. Whelps...(G) I am glad to have my 'tin' back, and do not have regrets. Aaahhhh, thanks for listening fellow spineys!!! *HUGZ*
