Congrats Steve!!! I know there are very gratifying times on the job but I can't wait untill I drive home from the fire house for the last time. I think I could get used to sleeping with my wife every night again.

Congratulations.
A friend of mine also just retired from the F.D and then hit on a scratch lottery ticket.

I hope the same luck comes your way.

Congratulations

My uncle retired last year from HFD after 30 years and could only fish and golf so much. He is still the VFD Chief and enjoys it just as much as he did before.

Now enjoy your life, you deserve it after all those years of service to your community

Everybody,
Thanks sooooo much for all the well wishes!!!!!
Every public worker owes a big thank you to every single taxpayer.It was that bite out of your incomes that paid my salary.You were the real Bosses,not the Chief's or City Hall........



Roger 1
To keep Jack out of trouble,I would have to hire extra help

Dyno,
Thanks for your opinion,and I do appreciate it.But, one of reasons I retired as early as possible was because of the new generation of firefighters.Unfortunately, the first words out of their mouths is HERO.When I started, I knew what the risks were and what the benefits were
and just like most people, took the job to pay the bills.
All jobs require sacrifices of some sort.The last stats. I saw,had mining and farming in the top 5 most dangerous occupations.....The new generation seems to be too concerned with ego,perceptions,education,and city hall;to get down and dirty........

tanned fat,
Not sure if being home with my wife EVERY night is going to be a good thing or bad If you're ever up this way give a shout.Have plenty of room for ya....

Candyman,
GREAT idea for a new job!!!!!After all, I live right between the builder,rigger,and painter.If they won't let me test drive Maybe I could get a job transporting
or deliveries(Scott,Chris,Sean,Bobby,Mitch??????)
See you and Vicki sooon....

Formulabill
Good luck brother.I'll keep the run in mind,and if you ever get north,give a holler....


Thanks again
Steve

That's great Steve! Wish I was in that scenario.

MAybe you could just transport boats to and from TAOD's there.

So, what are your plans? I see the Outlaw's for sale. So, what's the future hold? Maria still working yet? You going to make her slave while you watch Oprah? LOL!
