Been bored recently. Busy but bored. I have not anything vaguely interesting this week to warrant blogging. Work has been draining and maybe that is part of it. Two local police officers were killed this weekend in a charity bike ride. Every year C.O.P.S does a bike ride to raise money for families of officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. This year there was an accident and a box truck ran into the group and injured one officer riding and killed 2. It was horrible, and one of the dead officers was one of the organizers of the ride and was very well known. The funeral for him was the other day and we covered it ALL DAY. Now I did not know the man but I respected what he did and especially respected the fact that he gave back to the community of Indianapolis. So watching family, friends, fellow officers, the Governor all talk on his behalf and then watching the procession to the grave site took it's toll on the observer as well. We started at 11am and finished after 6:30. By the end of the day I wanted to just go home and hug the wife and kid. Which I did.

Outside of that things are well. My company actually had a picnic for the employees yesterday. We had a BBQ with plenty of food for all and a very good time was had. I am very surprised, they usually go for the cheap, but not this time. The food was great, the company at the table was greater and we even got some ice cream for dessert (Dove Bars). If that does not make for a good day at work, I do not know what does.

PS: 3-3 this week in working out at the Y, tomorrow will make it a full week of exercise in a month!!!!!

Fingers Crossed.

I haven't checked in with you for a while, so sorry to hear about your bp troubles, but it sounds like you are on the mend and better for it! Sometimes life sends you a curve ball and we hit it out of the park!
