The next chapter begins

Tue Apr 01, 2014 8:12 pm

So I retired last Thursday, 36 years in the Navy is behind me now. I have to tell you, it feels pretty cool and it's exciting to think that I can now sharpen knives during the day instead of after supper every night.....which I will still do. At the retirement function, the Master of Ceremonies brought a bag of hunting knives to do, here are two of them

This is my Shadowbox that was a surprise gift. The flag was hoisted by my son while his ship was at sea off the coast of Africa on his recent deployment which was a nice touch.

Just thought I would share this with my friends here.

Thank God I have knife sharpening, it would be terrible not to have something to keep me busy.

Oh and it was also my wife's birthday, how is that for planning.

Yes, congratulations!

I was in the Navy for 7 years, my father retired after 20 and my grandfather was in for a few years. However my grandfather was originally from Nova Scotia and enlisted in the Canadian Navy. He also spent a few years on the Schooner Bluenose. I was young and only remember bits of his stories but do remember that he seemed to have enjoyed his time on Bluenose.
