Proud of you sis!

I'm so proud of my sister.

Over the weekend, wait, let me start earlier than that...

Several months ago, she decided to start her life anew. Tired of the cold and dreariness of Michigan, where she's lived since getting out of the Army several years ago, she packed everything she owns into her car (including her two cats) and alone, drove across the country to San Diego, California, where she'd always dreamed of living. She also knew what she wanted to do when she got there. Become a police officer with the San Diego Police Department.

The first hurdle is crossed.

This weekend she had two tests leading to academy placement. The first was a written test which she knocked out easily. The second was a physical obstacle course test. She was the only female to pass it.

Other hurdles remain over the upcoming months--background investigations, polygraph tests, interviews--but I know she will attack those with the same ferocity with which she's confronted everything else. If all continues to go well, she'll begin the 71st Police Academy in January.

Proud of you sis!

You go, girl!! = ) Way to show 'em what we can do! ; )

Maybe we can meet up sometime in the next couple yrs. over in Joshua Tree NP or're also always welcome to come visit gorgeous N. California! I'm not far from Tahoe, just about an hour from SF and the coast, and right by the wine country. : )

Driving across the country's cool, isn't it? (have done it--in pieces--from coast to coast, a couple times) a beautiful land...
