Happy Day!

Today is Dear Husband's LAST day of work!!!! After 25 (!) years in law enforcement, he is retiring :) :)

Dear Husband has worked in a variety of roles including in the schools, as a SWAT Operator, and a Supervisor. He has a Masters Degree in Social Work, and used this in his role as a Crisis Intervention Team Member/Instructor, helping other officers understand how to best meet the needs of people with mental illness involved with law enforcement.

Always a Good Cop, proud of his long record of not giving tickets to people (they learn more when you just talk to them, he says -- I say give the tickets!), and just a kind, respectful "tough" guy -- Dear Husband has had a career that is worthy of pride and recognition.

Dear Husband has worked very hard for a very long time, and will now enjoy life as a Kept Man (that is what he says anyway ;). His first big retirement plan -- finish his flying lessons and buy a plane!

Happy Retirement Dear Husband!!!!!


  1. YAY! Congrats DH, aka, Kim!! Enjoy it and be safe out there!

  2. Congratulations Kim!
    An achievement, a relief, and yet a bittersweet departure I'm sure. But now you can pursue all those interests that had to stay on the "back shelf" because of the demands of work and service.

    And remember: Aviate, Navigate, Communicate.

    Fly Safe!
