The Decision

Let me start by taking a second to say Thank You. I am completely humbled and overwhelmed at the sheer volume of responses I received on the last post. Not to mention that, to a one, they were supportive and positive. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t give me pause and bring a tear to my eye. Hey, hey, watch it…remember I carry a gun.

So, it’s with no small sense of responsibility, humility and a little bit of nervous anxiety that I will continue to blog…with one caveat…it’ll be a couple days. I’m going to go back over the past 174 posts and make sure I’ve appropriately covered my tracks vis-a-vis my anonymity, removed any questionable pictures, and, perhaps, edit myself a wee bit.
After a lot of thought, prayer, talks with the Wife, and some soul searching, I think this blog is bigger than me. I have faith that God is leading me in the right direction with my decision. I think I owe it to the Wife, the Kid(s) (yes, there’s one coming soon), the rest of my family, and you to continue whatever it is I’m doing here.
We’ll get back to the fun and frivolity with Saturday’s Question in a few days…on Saturday. Really? Did I have to explain that?
Again, thank you all very much for your comments, emails, and messages. I will be forever grateful.
PTB….blame these folks. 🙂

    Great news about the new baby on the way. I'll have to get out my knitting needles.

  3. I'm really glad to hear it!! I didn't have time to respond to your previous entry, but was really bummed to know you might not continue with it. So glad that's not the case! 🙂

  4. *REALLY bad singing* "DON'T STOP, BELIEVING!!!"

    I knew you wouldn't quit!!

    🙂 Keep them slightly snarky comments comin' Brother!

  5. Glad you've decided to continue, you are a great writer and you are always keeping the ill informed updated!

    Again you are an insperation to many, myself included. I would not have continued mine with out your assistance..THANKS for staying!!

  6. This is excellent news. I downloaded your entire blog the other day just in case you pulled the plug.

  7. Yay! I'm relieved to hear you're continuing. And for what it's worth, I have no idea who you are.

  8. I'm so happy for you..on both accounts! Congratulations to you and Mrs.MC!


  9. Oh thank the powers that be!! I don't know what I'd have done. Your Sat. questions make me ponder how I would answer. MY blog's too boring for ME to read!! All cop stuff!! LOL!!
    I'm sure glad you're here to stay!!!

  10. Yay! Thanks for sticking around. I misread your post at first and was momentarily crushed when I thought you wrote that you would continue blogging but only for a couple of days.
    Im a non-cop fan of your blog from Australia. Thankyou for writing the best cop blog on the internet!

  11. I am so glad to see that you're going to continue on this adventure. I have finally read all of your posts and was about to cuss you for quitting now that I'm fully hooked on your blog! Keep up the kick ass job you're doing!

    BTW.. congrats on the impending bundle heading your way!!

  12. Yay!!!! Snoopy dance time!!!

    p.s. Officer will be so happy!!

  13. I speak for MC when I say a hearty THANKS for all the congrats on the impending bundle! I just hope MC's paternity leave doesn't leave him dry for stories! (ehhh…who am I kidding? This man is NEVER dry for a good story!)

    I have to say, to all my husband's loyal readers… you have given him a push to write like no one ever has, including me and his Mama! While I obviously think he's the bees knees, I appreciate you all being so supportive of his wit, talent, and anonymity while he performs this public service.


  14. I'm really glad. Your blog has really opened my eyes to the world of law enforcement and given me a new perspective and respect for the work you guys do. Truly, I view cops in a whole new light solely due to your blog.

  15. Im so pleased you decided to stick around MC.
    You can always make me smile with your political correctness and unwillingness to upset anyone.
    I have never known a blogger who tries so hard to care for peoples feelings and virtually embrace all of humanity as caring and loving individuals who all have some good in them and have a purpose in the wider society.


    Looking forward to many more posts!

  16. Woot! First of all, and I do believe most importantly of all – CONGRATULATIONS on the soon-to-be-addition to the family!

    And secondly – just adding my applause to that of the rest. Thank you for sticking around! Cop blog world wouldn't be the same without you.

  17. YAY! so glad you are sticking around. Reading your blog makes me smile. You are a great writer and a great ambassador for law enforcement as in you are tough, you are fair, and you serve the public without disrespecting people.

  18. I'm happy to see you back. Keep up the good work — and be safe out there.

    Just because I work for the defense doesn't mean that I don't respect and appreciate what you do.

  19. Congrats on the new little one.

    Thank you, I hope you will continue your blog for a lonngg time.

  20. If a blog, written by a man who carries a gun on a daily basis, makes him feel better, then I'm all for it. The powers that be should see that as well. I'm glad you're staying MOTOR, you're a hoot.
