    crpntr133 , keep at it & it will pass pretty quick. I actually decided to pull out early as I was getting pretty stressed at the job I was doing & even lost my passion for the part I loved, time to leave. Best thing I've done. People tell me I look 10 years younger as I have no stress.

    5 days and a wake up. I went to work last week to do a final inventory of the departments evidence room that I had a key for & was supervisor of. Turned in my keys right before we did it. When we went to sync the handheld scanner to the desktop it asked for a password that. We never had that before so we called the tech people & they couldn't find it so they are looking for it. Told the Chief it didn't matter as I could write it from what we found by doing it. Told him whenever they got it I would come back in & show someone how to deciper the report it produces.

    1 DAY TO GO!!!!!!!. Got my hair & beard trimmed so I guess I'm presentable as I'll be. Today at Church the Mayor told me he would be there at the reception. But he was wondering about me retireing as I haven'T been to work since Feb 17 this year. I told him I planned it this way so I could ease into without any shock. I think I'll make it. Best of all one of my gradeschool friends from Bengazi Libya is showing up. It's been a few years since we last got together.

    Congrats MCR! I hope you have a great time!

    It's official. I'm retired. the city gave me a nice reception then the department held a dinner party. I recieved a few nice gifts from fellow officers. The big surprise was I was given my service pistol & my patrol rifle. Had a good time and now to get on with life.
    On another note my better 16/16ths finnally went to the car dealership & test drove a vehicle. surprise ,surprise she liked it & gave me no trouble when I told the saalesman we would take it. This has been a 3 year struggle.
