Now------------->child support enforcement investigator
Before her------>firefighter (bad, bad move)
Before her------>college student, bio major, tree-hugger and all-around uber liberal

Been happy for fourteen years.  She has a personality 100% opposite of mine, but most importantly, she's no dummy.  And she completely supports my walking away from a successful public service career (and full pension) to pursue this law thing.  God love her!   ;D

Meatloaf (what we eat, not the singer), greasy spoon diners, guns, huntin', and...

Procedural and Substantive Due Process!   ;)

(Gawd, I'm gonna love my Con Law classes...)

NO PANSY, IT DOESN'T GET EASIER. NOR DO YOU GET A BLANKET OR NAP TIME.

NOW DROP DOWN AND GIVE ME [A] 20 [PAGE APPELLATE BRIEF]!!

AND GET OFF MY EFFIN' OBSTACLE!!!!

R. Lee Emery as a law professor would have everyone wishing for ten days and a wake-up.

And, yes...I'll probably miss the rush of fighting fires, saving lives and just being an overall highly dedicated public servant.  (Well, I'll miss the fighting fires and saving lives parts at least...)

I'll also hear, "Freakin' gun nut."

"You're HOW old?!"

I'll get that, too.  Beer is a great preservative.   :D

Camo pants.  Huntin' boots.  Insulated bib overalls in the winter (Cleveland can get a damn bit chilly with that wind whipping in off Lake Erie).  Under Armour Mossy Oak Break-up Loose Gear T-shirts in the early fall and late spring.  Blaze orange during gun season.

Hmmm, better check the shotgun at the door, though.   :D

Thanks for the house-selling tips, Matthies!  Even though we decided not to sell our primary residence, we went ahead with the painting and new floor coverings.  Installed a couple of new light fixtures, too, to brighten the kitchen/dining areas.  Went with a three-lamp fixture that takes GE Revel bulbs--wow, very bright.  I had to put them on dimmer switches.

Got a deal on the painting labor--guy I work with does it on the side for $15/hour.  He and a helper painted seven rooms (and fixed holes/dings in the drywall) for $1365.  Trim, ceilings, doors, walls--heck of a job and in nice neutral colors.  I hate painting so it was worth it.  He's also going to install the Pergo flooring I bought on sale at Home Depot--again, $15/hour.  No carpet/flooring shop could touch that price.

If we can keep the pugs from tearing up the place over the next three years it'll still look nice when we go to sell.

I'm not a cool kid, but it's Cleveland-Marshall for me.  Sending the seat deposit today and submitting my resignation/retirement papers to the fire department by the end of the month.


Just want to say that this is really awesome.  I wish you a great deal of luck.

Thanks.  It's funny...folks on this discussion board, people I've never met and may never meet in person, have been WAY more supportive than those I've worked with or known for years.  I think this is consistent with others' comments in this thread.  (I'm already starting to hear the lawyer jokes... >:()
