lost and found.....
It's been a while, but of course you all know that. It's been quite a year for me. I've been out of state a few times. Some for work, some for pleasure. Aside from that, I have been investing most of my free time into my day job. I've been doing a lot of statistic collecting, closed door meetings and high pressure presentations. Doesn't sound much like cop work, huh? Believe it or not it has been quite essential for me lately and I have had to do it along with my standard patrol/supervisor duties and often for no extra pay. I'm not trying to make you all weep for me with this. I just feel that if I read a page often and one of it's writers ended up on the back of a milk carton I would appreciate a little explanation.
The good news in all of this is that the work has payed off and a new position has been created by my employer as a result and I will be assigned to this position beginning sometime in July. It will allow me to create my own schedule and will be mostly a 9 to 5 sort of thing. It's great news to my wife and kids and hopefully to those of you who may be interested in all of those little blurbs I used to throw up here on the Shelf as I will have much more time for this sort of thing. I plan on a post here fairly soon in reference to the current state of our wonderful country as soon as I can get it completed. If you can bear with me, I promise to return to 'active duty' here at the Shelf in the near future. In conclusion; how about a round of applause for JC and Mrs. Baravelli for pickin' up my slack!
Please feel free to comment if the need strikes you.
