An Unexpected Merry Christmas gift

I got a gift today in work.

Sure, cash is always good…lol…but it wasn’t that.

My boss came over when I was on the phone and presented me with a wooden award slate that was a City of Philadelphia Retirement award. I was floored. Seriously. I think for the first time in 30 years I actually had nothing to say.

It is pictured below and I have to admit it made me feel good for one reason. Everything engraved on that award was the truth. I have tried, for the most part, to do a good job for the citizens of my city. I actually felt appreciated.

I guess it really IS time for me to take the show on the road.

The curtain is coming down.
