My last day at the Forest Service August 3 and I am now formally a retiree. Blogwise, this is most important because no more can anyone blame the Forest Service for my misdeeds, mis-thoughts and mis-writings. FS folks have been very patient (some more than others..) about the idea of doing this blog in my spare time, and touching upon topics that could tick people off, either internally or externally. I expect that a result of my retirement is that I will ask questions that might tick people off, and perhaps also say (more?) things that will tick people off.
Attached here is the retirement speech for me written by the ever-popular and gifted writer DeAnn Zwight. It cracked me up, and hopefully the humor is not too inside.. All I can tell you is that it’s all true.
