Default Re: What is happening

I don't think I mentioned, I retired, effective September 1. I quit going to work back toward the end of July, using up about 5 weeks of sick leave.

After 15 years 9 months in the Missouri Department of Corrections, I had enough. It all was beginning to get to me, so I just walked away. No fanfare, no warning, I just quit going in.

From what I hear, the place still hasn't recovered.


Now I've been focusing on my crafts; the chain maille and wire wrap jewelry, photography, scroll saw art, and laser engraving.

Lots less stress.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
