Bad Boyz

This past summer, after some prodding from my brother-in-law, my husband decided to change careers. He's decided to become a "man in blue", to protect and serve the community. Or in other words, take down the evil scum that parades around the streets.

I have a message for you evil-doers... You're goin' down!

So anyway, this last summer my husband applied with a police department to be hired on their force and to start P.O.S.T. (Peace Officer Standard and Training). There was some tests involved, that required his smarts and his muscles. Needless to say, out of three hundred some applicants, he tested 5th out of all of them. That's my guy!

In October he started his training. Everyday he traveled to South Salt Lake and underwent grueling work-outs, scenarios and classes.

There have been some noticeable changes since he began training...

  • the hubs is ripped! he was ripped before, but now he resembles a manly, muscular, male, specimen!

  • there has been a great increase of watching EVERY cop show on tv. COPS, Wildest Police Chases... you name it, we dvr-it.

  • cop lingo has been expressed quite frequently. Especially while viewing the above mentioned Cop shows. "That's a 10-75! Tazer! Pit maneuver! That's called assault, Mrs. L (me)"

  • the hubs likes to practice defense tactics on poor Cody. He tried to practice some on me, but that quickly came to an end once I shot him a warning glare. He knows better, than to mess with me.

  • Our home has been engulfed with Cop paraphernalia. Hand-cuffs, badge, utility belt, radio, gun, etc.

  • no more facial hair. Oh how I miss that sexy goatee!

The training has been difficult, at times. There has been an incredible amount of muscle soreness and pain for him and there were some weeks that I took on the role as "single mother" while he stayed down there.

Needless to say, after many weeks of training, Steve graduated this past Thursday!

Simply said, I'm so proud of him.

I had high hopes of being able to sit and watch the entire graduation in the comfort of the auditorium seating. That didn't happen. At all.

Here is Cody and Conner before the graduation started. To start, Conner was enjoying his seat, by flipping the seat up and down, up and down. And see that sucker in his mouth...that was my own defense tactic.

In the next picture, where Cody is posing oh so nice, you can see where things began to unravel. And pretty soon it was pure chaos. Reinforcements were needed (Cody).

Here is the class of 284. These good people will be serving us in many departments. Some in the Game and Fish division, some in our jails, one of them on a bomb squad, sheriffs departments, and police departments.

Steve had the honor of receiving his certificate from his younger brother.

(see the female officer on the far left in the front row? she beat ALL of the recruits in push-ups! she RAWKS!)

Unfortunately, I was only able to hear and see the graduation off and on. This is the reason why.

The key-note speaker was really good. He was a retired cop, turned author/reporter. His speech was humorous and touching. And just at the pivotal moment when the speaker began to choke up a bit, as he talked about his wife, Conner escaped my grasp and attempted to run down to the first section of the auditorium. The section where the podium stood. The section where all of the graduates were sitting. The section where all of the big wigs were sitting. I quickly began to retrieve the escapee when he turned around, pointed at me and yelled, "GET AWAY!"

This is a common occurrence at our home.

And here is the moment when things really turned ugly. Homeboy is in the process of telling me to "Get Away" and "No Fowa Fo You"! (interpretation: No flower for you!) I have no idea where he got this from. But he does yell it to all of the naughty people in the cartons on tv.

He is the flower nazi.

Even though Conner isn't really showing his excitement for his daddy, in the picture above, I know that he is very proud of his daddy. We all are. And I'm looking forward to seeing Steve grow in his new career! Congratulations Steve! I love ya forever!

  1. Congratulations, Steve. That's awesome. Sorry about the little guy. Maybe his dad should book him!

  2. LOL!! Had to laugh at the title after reading this! Congrats to Steve!
    Sorry to hear about the little one getting away!

  3. Way to go Steve er, Officer. I know he is going to be a great police officer! Just tell him no 10-60's when he sees my car ;)

    While you're at it with the cop shows the one we've found pretty entertaining lately is the Steven Segall one.

  4. That is so awesome!!! congrats to you all! It will be nice knowing we havee some more protection in the neighborhood! :) What a huge accomplishment! Way to go Steve!!!

  5. Wow, congratulations to Steve!! That's so impressive. Now we both have men in uniform...isn't it just the best? And I can so relate on the 'single mother' deal...anytime you need to chat or advice, you let me know! I'm here for you!

  6. Congratulations Steve! That is so exciting! I'm sorry that you didn't get to sit and enjoy the ceremony. I'm sure people understand.

    That is hilarious that he said "No flower for you." I wonder where he got that from!?! Funny!

    Where will Steve be working now? Which city/county?

  7. I am so mad that I missed it! For some reason I had the 12th in my mind and we were planning on coming up. I am glad I called Steve last week to find out the time, so he could tell me that I was too late): I am proud of him too and I fear for those evil doers out there. Now they have two Lewis brothers to deal with!

    Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

    When I was hurt in that automobile accident my life would be changed for all time. Unfortunately that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be hurting for ever.

    This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

    How dreadful was it? I has bedridden for 7 months, I had to have constant care and my hospital bills went through the roof!

    Luckily, I found a good referral site to help me.

    I will post more later this month to tell you more about what I have been going through.

    Finding the right sports books and bookmakers to use for your arbitrage sports betting can be a daunting task with the internet now they are everywhere. The list of crooked bookmaking sites that have helped part people with their money and robbed them of their winnings grows longer every day. Being enlightened about this all sports bettors should do their due diligence before signing up with any bookmaker and be sure of their reputation as well as their guarantees on return of winnings. Almost all sports betting sites will have reviews so read them before making your decision on which one you go with.

    Any one who bets on sports for profit will want to make sure they are getting the best sports betting odds but it doesn’t matter what you are betting on, the fact of the matter is that the house is going to be sure to come out on top. They don’t build those billion dollar casinos with winner’s money! The best odds are generally a little better and a sports bettor will likely see a return of eight to ten dollars for every hundred dollars he or she bets over a long term period.

    It appears that the United States legal system is closer than ever before to cutting off ties with any type of online gambling within its boundaries. This includes poker, casinos, and sports betting among others. Generally speaking, anything that has to do with transmitting money via the internet as far as gambling is concerned is being cracked down on quite harshly.

    From the above, therefore, you can see that finding a good Selection System and sticking to it is the only way to go if you are truly serious about making money at sports betting.

    12.) Coveralls and Blackouts are longer bingo games. Probability of successive numbers coming together is higher in such games. Hence, change your play accordingly and choose appropriate cards for winning at these games in online bingo. [url=]online bingo games[/url] Most players do not notice the bingo system in play while playing the game as you are in a hurry to mark the numbers accurately. Nevertheless, these bingo systems function in a subtle manner and a regular and intent player can locate these systems in action. [url=]free bingo game[/url] If you do not know anyone who uses the gaming sites or you want some additional reinforcement your first port of call should be an online bingo community. By reading reviews by other people who use the Bingo sites, you will be able to get a feel for the different sites that exist and make a more qualified decision about which one you would like to use. The knowledge concerning different sites and what other users consider important about them is an invaluable tool for the new online Bingo player. Whether it is for fun or for money, there needs to be an element of integrity within the site and a potential for the player to win the game. The knowledge of other users concerning specific sites will tell the new online Bingo player whether the site is for real or is just masquerading in order to harvest the players email addresses in order to bombard them with spam, or worse con them out of their hard earned cash. This can all be avoided with research and trying before you buy, as mentioned earlier the best places to scope out bingo sites is by using a review site or Bingo members forum.

    Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

    Winning the Game

    The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

    There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

    Bingo Game Rules

    Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

    Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

    Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

    Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

The Groupon performs as an assurance contract making use of ThePoint's platform: if a specified amount of people indicator up for the provide you, then the offer turns into accessible to all if the predetermined minimal is not reached, no a single certain gets the offer that working day. This reduces chance for merchants, who can take care of the price reduction coupon codes as amount discount rates as properly as income promoting resources. Groupon can make income by keeping around fifty % the income the customer pays for the coupon.

    For instance, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be received by the buyer for $forty by way of Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would split the $forty. That is, the retailer provides a massage valued at $eighty and receives approximately $twenty from Groupon for it (beneath a fifty%/fifty% break up). Or, if $240 properly well worth of residence portray suppliers is bought by the buyer for $fifty by implies of Groupon, then the organization will get $twenty five and Groupon retains $twenty 5.

Groupon's marketing and advertising textual material for the 'deals' has been noticed as a contributing concern to the reputation of the site, that includes a distinctive combine of comprehensive fact-checking and witty humor.

    Owing to Groupon's market obtaining primarily composed of girl clients, the bargains are normally centered on the wellness, health and attractiveness marketplaces.

For illustration, a productive offer could briefly swamp a very small business with way too several buyers, jeopardizing a likelihood that consumers will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be sufficient merchandise to fulfill the demand from customers from buyers.
