Back to Work...

Well, its about time. I head back to work tomorrow, the first day of work since July 12th. For those of you who haven't followed this story, my absence from work was not by choice. My Ortho has cleared me to start working 4-6 hour days for the next couple of weeks. Since I'm 6-8 weeks from walking, running, tackling, wrestling, and using the tools of the trade above - my Deputy Bureau Chief has found some some "data entry" work over at Admin. It may not sound like fun, and probably won't be - but it will be great being back to work and off the couch! (counter-intuitive I know)

The best part - real activity and building stamina and strength while getting paid actual money.
The Worst part - I had to shave my surgery beard (pictures to follow in stages of deconstruction), and continue to shave cleanly for work daily.

Are your handcuffs orange or is that some weird lighting.

I think I need a gun when I do office work to!

Good question Marshall - If every office worker was packing a glock there might be less office back-biting - but also more work place GSWs. But I'm willing to give it a shot.

The Cuffs are orange. I ordered them specifically, as I was tired of wrestling an inmate to the ground, cuffing him up, have him dragged off by other officers, and then not seeing my cuffs for a day or two. I'm the only one with orange cuffs, so I always get them back and fast.

I am glad that life is returning to "normal", and I would love to see you all ASAP! I will give you a Facebook shout-out so that we can connect.
