Returning HOME for a Retirement Party
It was like going home today
when I went back to the TBI
for Deborah's retirement party.
Deborah trained me. There were
three of us in the Medicaid Fraud Unit.
Deborah worked with the East Tn agents,
Cindy worked with the West Tn agents
and I had Middle Tn.
Partners in Crime!
Deborah has BIG hair.
I used to tell her the bigger
the hair the closer to God.
So today the tables were
decorated with....of course
That's Deborah in the red...me
of course in the corner. No clue
who the dude was watching me!
Director of the TBI and Deborah.
This is not the same Director I
That's my bud Phil with the camera.
I met Phil about 16 years ago when he
was a new photographer to Photographic
Services (yes, where I work now). Phil and
I worked together and Phil is the one that
put a good word in for me to help me move
over to the TBI.
The guy sitting down is Deborah's son,
That's Deborah with Mike.
Mike was my boss when I was
moved from Medicaid to the Fusion
center. Then right before I left the
TBI, Mike moved over to Medicaid
and became Deborah's boss.
Yes....and here is the 3rd one in
the mix of the
PARTNERS IN CRIME...Cindy.
Charlie spoke about his mom and
how proud he is of her.
The dude standing and talking
to the lady is Doug. Doug was
once my boss in Medicaid Fraud.
That is his wife he is talking to.
There has been a major turnover
the last 5 to 6 yrs at the TBI.
Here is the pic below are two
other guys that at one time were
my boss in Medicaid. The two
guys standing in front of the
woman were my bosses, Norman
and Bob. Bob is retired from there
and Norman moved to Blue Cross.
The woman is a retired agent
out of East Tn. The guy in the
pink shirt worked in Medicaid
with us. And the one in the white
shirt sitting is an agent that now
works in the Nashville office but
he is out of East TN.
I got so many nice comments and
HUGS from so many of these great
This was my all time fave agent
that I worked with. Gene is such
a great person.
Had the best time visiting with
old friends. I have to say that
through my 33yrs of state government
work, my five years with Medicaid Fraud
was the best and for sure the most
amazing people to work with.
