Band Meeting

Yesterday we sat around a bunch of tables in a big rectangle and had our monthly meeting. Each investigator gives his or her spiel about their current cases and we have a little union meet at the end. Rape, attempted murder, vehicular homicides, bank robberies, shootings, stabbings, embezzlement, child molestation, hot prowls, preliminary hearings, appeals, trial dates set and reset, witnesses gone missing, etc.

Then we talked about the Christmas party. Fundraising for our brother fighting cancer. Fundraising for somebody else with cancer. The dismal state of our retirement fund.

Sometimes this gig ain't nothin' but a job.

Ah, but it's a job you love.

Do you have any idea how damned lucky you are to have a job that you love?

Count your blessings, mister.

And seriously, even when your gig is "nothin' but a job", it's still one of the most important jobs in the world.

Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do.

Again, thanks for giving us a glimpse...into all that comes your way, your job, and the guys with cancer...
