Introduction: My First Blog

To my faithful readers if I have any, I would like to take a few minutes to discuss the pro's and cons of retirement. The Pro's:( ahem )
Now the Cons: First let me say retirement is probably great for most people, people who are ready for it. I guess I might as well be honest and say I was not. I really didn't know how great a job I had till I left it. The comradery between me and my buddies the jokes we played on each other, did we get mad, no, we got even. Another thing that's missing from ones life when retired is the idol chat, it could be on sports, or politics, on a guys days off, cars, movies, foods, you name it , it is fair game. And then you have the gossip, wow now that I could write a book on.Well this is my first Blog ever and I really am not sure what I am doing as far as posting it so I will end this session for now in case I loose it somewhere in cyberspace.

Good Luck, my Nha Trang Brother, on your blog usually starts out slow, but slow and steady is the way to go, not to much to fast, and keep plugging away.

Pat thanks for the encouragement,I guess if I keep it real and never embelish a story I will do just fine. Again thanks.

I know how you feel. I am a retired Air Force cop, and have been retired since 87, and I still miss it. I have a hard time relating to anyone who is not in law enforcement even to this day. I have friends, but with non law enfocement types it is just different. I have a couple of Houston PD cops I hang out with, and we have some pretty good times, cops are cops be they military or civilian, we are all just a little bent. Ha.


Hi, Harry here, welcome to my Blog. I'm a bit illiterate when it comes to spelling and typing but I am learning every day and with the help of my beautiful wife of 43 years Anna, I am getting better at it. I am a retired Philadelphia Police Officer but seem to be busier than ever trying to get things done I couldn't get to for thirtyfive years. I never know when I can get to my blog but I will make an effort to get it done at least two or three times a week. I am sure some will like it and some will fined it ridiculous but thats ok. Well welcome and I hope you enjoy......
