After looking at the numbers, checking the calendar and thinking that the work could be left for someone else I ventured into retirement.
I always wanted to try busking so I took to the streets and became an informal fundraiser for schools, cancer and food banks - and a source of humour for the people I knew that ran into me.
Their expressions suggested that it’s not what a retired cop is supposed to be doing.
Still, life has chapters. This one has adult kids ensuring that I have current tunes to take to the Farmer’s markets and community events that I’ve been fortunate to play at this year.
