Stick a fork in me – I am done. — 28 Comments

  1. Of course the embassy in London is not functioning today — they’re having a huge wedding and media frenzy. With everyone glued to “tellies” there’d be no work done anyway. But I said everything would work out in the end. Now enjoy the well-earned hammock, you can start writing the book tomorrow! Welcome back to the civilian world!

  2. MAZEL TOV!! Now, go lie down.

    Please keep me on your mail list. I’d love to continue to be a part of your life post-Army.

  3. Congrats!
    By the time this reaches you from CA, there will be very, very few hours left until you are officially done. Thanks for your long service. Intended or not you’ve been a valuable asset to the country.

  4. Be careful with how high you set that hammock, Holly, because you are now extremely short. 🙂

  5. I know you have made a difference, but it never feels like enough,
    does it? Oh, dear one, ((hugs)).

  6. congratulations! a lot of people throughout the years and places you worked are grateful you were there when they needed you. Enjoy your time to yourself now, you’ve earned it.

  7. Wow. 33 years (faint). I have NO IDEA how anyone could to that! 🙂 Congratulations on an amazing career and a job well done!! WHEW!
    BTW I was 13 in 78 …. 😉

    Changing out of the uniform for the very last time… ah memories. I only did 13 years active + 5 as a cadette… but it seemed like a lifetime – well… it is a lifetime when you are 45.

    Are you going to miss it?

  8. and are you trying to make me feel old (grin).

    It was only limited fun for the last couple of years (other than the deployment). It is time to move on.

  9. Reminds me of the paperwork just to get processed out of the Navy. Thank goodness I ddnt have to go through what you did.

    Your tone sounds tired. Are you ready to jump up and intomyour next adventure?

  10. Very best wishes for a long, happy and fulfilling retirement. You’ve earned it – especially for your sheer patience in coping with the frustrations of the last few weeks! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Hopefully the blogs will continue as you settle down (?) to life as a civilian!

  11. With the utmost respect, I would like to let you know you made a positive difference in my life.

    I just wanted to make sure you knew that.

  12. You have made a difference. I have learned more from you than anyone. Thank you for your effort.

  13. God sent you on this road for a reason. There is no question that you have made a positive difference – a lot of of people would say the same.
    Now you should take in the different sounds, sights, smells etc, and relax and enjoy.

  15. Congratulations!

    I, for one, am glad you serviced and were there when I needed you in the male chauvinist world.

  16. Yes please go lay in a hammock, better yet grab hubby and take a cruise, lots of knitting ,naps, wear what you want when you want, (or nothing at all), eat what you want when you want, do what you want when you want. Never have to worry about saluting every one that walks by as you salute. Never have to stay in a tent unless you decide to go camping, in that case it will not be next to an airport runway, Never use a port o let with out a lock on the door or restrooms with curtains for doors. Unless of course you attend the colorado state fair which by the arena bathroom you do not want to use. As they are too cheap for doors, so they use shower curtain, luckily insidea building at least still rather embarrassing at times.
    Sleep til you need or want to get up, without having to worry. Eat in your kitchen or dining room with your family and if you hate the meals fire the cook.
