My Smurfiversary

Friday, May 1st, 2009

Yes Lovelies, today is May Day, but today is so much more than that…today marks my Silver Anniversary with the CPD…my 25 year mark as a Smurf…my Smurfiversary!


Yeah me!!

Would that I could retire…sigh…but no… :( Our silly Commonwealth has a silly rule that you not only have to have a minimum of 25 years of service but you also have to be 50 years old. Well. That’s a problem. You see, most of us are not 50 after 25 years. Do the math. Start at 21 (or 22 for me), do 25 years, notice you’re not 50, hunker down for a couple more years.

Oh well. All I can say is, when that calendar rolls around to 50 for me, the path best be cleared or there shall be footprints left on any folks standing twixt me and the door! :)

As I Get Older…

Monday, February 19th, 2007

I have added a new category and today is the kickoff for it. I decided I needed to share some of the wealth of information I have amassed over the decades so you young folks will know what’s coming. I will be adding to it as the muse inspires me.

As I Get Older…

I have phantom pains
And mystery bruises
One big hearty laugh
And my bladder oozes

Varicose veins
And two crunchy knees
Lactose intolerant
Pardon me please

Wake up each morning
“Good Lord” I proclaim
I’ve channeled Fred Sanford
We shuffle the same

Slowly I stumble
Bathroom by Braille
Thank God Almighty
The shower has rails

Finally I make it
Out the front door
Forgot my car keys
Back in once more

Mindlessly follow
The commuter masses
Can’t see a thing
Without tri-focal glasses

More to come…
