Retirement Party in Punta Gorda

After many years of service to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Dep't, my brother and siste-in-law retired.  
The party was held Saturday night at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge in Port Charlotte, FL, right across Charlotte Harbor from their home in Punta Gorda.
It was a great parrot head party with all kinds of food.
On Sunday morning, I went to church at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Punta Gorda then to Ted and ReLinda's for a cookout with friends and family. 
I drove back home to West Palm Beach Monday morning.
I had a great time and it was nice being with my family. Lisa and Jim and Claire flew down from Portland, OR for the occasion and we had a great time.
We all wish ReLinda and Ted a fun and happy retirement.
