Today is my hubby's retirement.
Thirty-five plus years as a Police Officer/K9 Officer/Sergeant.
We were practically babies when he started his career and the day has finally arrived where he gets to hang up his gun and badge, and RELAX!
A fun luncheon is planned at the Police Department, then drinks with friends and co-workers tonight!
The husband of a card maker friend designed the picture above (Gary Yost Images), I just had it printed a few times so I could give some dimension to the name plate and whistle, then make it into a card.
Many thanks to Gary Yost for working with this crazy lady!
Wanting to do something special for my man, I decided I would "lift" a few things from his locker and desk at work.
(Apologies to the City of Largo if he was supposed to turn these things in)
I stopped in every antique store in central Florida and finally found a piece of furniture worthy of my eclectic decor.
Is this a gorgeous Side by Side, or what?!?
Last built in the 1920's, it cleaned up so nicely and was just perfect for what I had pictured in my head.
Most of a uniform, boots, radio, things that mean something to him/us.
And how about that Mobile Phone at the top right?
Bet you haven't seen one of those in awhile...or ever.
And to top it off...the whole thing locks with the original skeleton key.
And his reaction.......Priceless!
Happy Retirement Butchie...
Love you more!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...
