    After being re-assigned to work in the local school as the school resource officer my DH decided he's had enough of policing and turned in his retirement paperwork with a quit date of tomorrow, November 1st. [​IMG]

    He changed his mind and has decided to wait until next April, when he will have a full 30 years on the force. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks Em. I kinda knew it was coming when he took his uniforms to the seamstress to have the new year stars put on. Guess I'll be on those ulcer meds for a little while longer.

    Until then I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. [​IMG]
