Happy turkey day in 3 days. My hand is feeling much better and the scar is getting better, but still numb and tingly. The next surgery will be around Dec 3rd or so for the left hand. Good thing I don't have any photo gigs coming up. I wish I did but would really cramp my style to have to shoot totally one handed snce I couldn't hold the camera with 2 hands.
My old boss is retiring. He actually retired last year but came back as a consultant for a year but is now officially retiring from being the chief of Police. He was a great guy to work with and very fair to you. If you screwed up you didn't want to have to go to his office as he was truly disappointed in you more than "oh good, I get to slam this yoyo!
The new chief hasn't been picked yet but its either one of two guys that I started with. One was my academy partner. Makes you wonder where I would have ended up if I would have not retired 8 years ago. But I had a good time while I was there and never got really called into anyone’s office to get an ass chewing. I didn't f'k up when I was a cop. And we were one of the first police departments that had video cameras in the police cars so it would have been real stupid for any of us to have messed up and beat someone etc, as it would have been all over the news WAY before it became vogue to have that on the news every night.
I don't think I've ever been in a pursuit that was on the news either. Another good thing about retiring before they start each 10 pm newscast with a pursuit of some sorts here in LA.
