Well my Uncle Sam and I decided about 2 years ago that we were going to part ways here next month. Our deal was a simple one, I told him I no longer saw things his way and I would like to resign. He happily said “Fine young man I understand, how about you finish out your contract until the summer of 2012 and you can go”. I said “Cool yeah I can do that.” Somethings have happened in the last 2 yrs to really prohibit me from going beyond this summer but that is water under the bridge. For sure, I can say my Uncle has gotten off track with his company. I think he hires too young and puts alot on their shoulders at any one time. Dont take me wrong, he looks after them well like he did with me. But with the way young kids are today, you hire young and shit is bound to happen. So none the less next month he going to let me say my peace and let me go about my own way. We also agreed that he was going to compensate for any medical problems I incurred along the way, and pay me for the rest of my life because I was loyal to him and his company for such a long time. My Uncle hired me young, taught me a trade and let me travel with him all over the world. Yeah I dont agree with alot of his current workcenter policies, but its his company and he runs it the way he sees fit. But hey, I know he will find someone to replace me and hopefully he treats them as well as he did me.

Okay so at first way back, I was nervous about leaving the Navy. You think about how the bills are going to get paid, and what kind of work am I going to do and so on and so forth. I was just being a big wuss. But now things are set in motion so that retirement day will go off with out a hitch and the day will just come and go. Life will go on and people will continue to defend this great nation, just that they will do it without me. I look forward to the following Saturday thinking about what comes next and how will I feel about living my second life. These days I joke with coworkers, about how I am going to party on the following Monday (Retirement day is a Friday). Its going to get going at 6 in the morning and they will not be able to attend cause THEY HAVE TO WORK!!!. Yeah Yeah I understand the sarcasm but who gives a fuck I earned quip and god dang it I am going to use it. I dont quite have a vision of what post Navy life is going to be but I am sure Penelope (my wife) will find a way forward and enjoy what lies ahead….but for right now..I am all about reminding folks that they have to work on June 25th AND I DONT!!!!!……Just a quick HAHAHAHAH thought.
Well, I cant find it, but I think i used this title for a blog post already. Anyways for the first time in a little bit today I really felt like I was getting back in the groove. Things are going great at work, I am feeling better and my overall mood i think is improving. Yeah Penelope might disagree but its only important how I look at it right??…Still taking meds and cant drive but hell..Life’s a Dance you learn as you go!!!..I know the not driving thing will end eventually and the meds..well you just get used to that. Old folks take meds everyday and adapt I am just doing it at younger age. With 9 months left til I can light up (THC …YEAH….) who knows maybe I can replace the chemical meds with a more natural herb..ooops i meant remedy. Hey what ever works for ya right???…I just need to get my license test out of the way and get back on the bicycle and hell I am aces for the time being. I love Penelope Edge, was thinking I may get one of them when I am granted Driving Parole….so things are great for now…….just a quick in the groove thought.
