Good Morning Friends!








... ... ... ...


Today is National Trail Mix Day,
Love Litigating Lawyers Day,
National Lint Trap Day,
and Franchise Appreciation Day.




Enjoy your holiday(s) of choice today!


Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some mighty DUMB Criminals in the World!




A bank robbery suspect trying to elude police searching for him in an apartment building jumped into a garbage chute and survived a 200-foot fall into trash in the basement. The 26-year-old man plunged from the 21st floor of the apartment complex located a few blocks from the bank he had robbed earlier.

He was conscious and told police he had climbed into the garbage chute to avoid being captured. Police estimate he fell about 210 feet before landing on garbage in a compactor at the bottom. He was able to slow himself down by holding the sides of chute, and the garbage may have cushioned the fall, but he did get severe injuries. Firefighters moved the compactor and removed the man from the chute.

Police said the man fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash after robbing the bank. After detectives learned he was seen entering a nearby apartment building, they began searching the building. That's when a maintenance worker told them he could hear someone calling for help from a garbage chute in the basement. When the officers checked it out, they found the man trapped in the compactor. He had some of the bank's money on him.

He is under police guard at the hospital, where he is listed in critical condition, and will be charged with robbery when his condition improves.

I will take a spot in each category. I have not made ATC's before but will do so in honor of my brother who is currently in palliative care dying of cancer.

Last year this swap was the first swap I had ever partipated in. I also had a 16 weeks premature son that returned to the Lord on the day of his birth 34 years ago and joined the swap because I knew the value of doing something each year in memory of. Thank you, Linda, for giving me the opportunity to share in your celebration of your son's and your brother's life.

It was very good. I was a little worried about the weather, but it sprinkled when we first got there and never rained again. When the show got out it started lightening and then as we were walking to the car, it started to thunder. I got all the way to West Hartford and it started to rain. By the time I got off the highway, it started to pour. I was very, very thankful we got out of there when we did. I don't think the umbrella was going to help us. Kelly Clarkson was there too and she did a really good job. I was amazed at how many songs I knew from both artists. I even knew some Maroon 5 songs that Kirsten didn't The best part, I had $20 tickets that I bought from Groupon on the day they went on sale. Free parking and all we bought to eat/drink was ice cream $11. So for $51 plus gas we had a great night.

Cheryl, I'm so happy you are here, and thank you for sharing your story. I hope your brother is comfortable at this difficult time. I can honestly say I know what you are going through.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some mighty DUMB Criminals in the World!




A Phoenix couple tried to trade their food stamps to grocery shoppers in exchange for drugs, police say. Perhaps the drug use has done a number on couple's brains, but people don't usually carry bags of drugs while grocery shopping. Thus, they were unsuccessful in making any transactions.

A 54-year-old woman was apparently not pleased when she realized her drug dealer had overcharged her for marijuana. She was, in fact, so concerned she felt she needed to vent about the scam to someone official. And why not to the 911 emergency dispatch center? Police were happy to investigate.

Today is Jury Rights Day,
National Cheese Pizza Day,
and Be Late for Something Day.




Enjoy your holiday(s) of choice today!


Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Beware of CHICKENS!




The manager of a grocery store took a rotisserie chicken to the face while chasing a theft suspect. The alleged thief ran out of the store after grabbing a rotisserie chicken and a four-pack of booze, but the manager followed him.


The chicken thief confronted the manager, telling him he would beat him up if he kept following him and then took off his belt and swung it around near the manager.


The manager just kept following him, so the thief chucked the chicken right at the manager's face. He then tried to run to a nearby gas station, but he ran into police officers there and was arrested.

Hey Linda! Did you see that they are closing your local scrapbook store?! How sad! Especially so close on the heels of the one in Wethersfield.

Thanks for the welcome home, Diane! We've run into problems since we got home. Flat tire, main computer not working, then this afternoon the air conditioning went out on a very HOT day. Fortunately we got a repairman out late this afternoon and it is fixed and running and didn't cost an arm and a leg either!

Wow! You have had a lot of things to deal with. The air conditioner being of utmost concern in this heat. Good thing it is fixed and cooling you off again. We had that happen to us one year. Not fun.

Kels, thanks for sharing that link! Love both the dogwood and butterfly images on that card and on the one she CASEd!! BTW, your intro phrase "Oh my stars!" reminded me so much of a beloved aunt. This was a favorite expression of hers.

House is now cool...I'm so grateful!!

Yes I like popping in there for things. I thought they were doing pretty well, so I'm not sure that lack of business is their reason for closing. Looks like I'll have to start using what is in my "stash" since there's no local place to buy.......or I'll have to come visit you to go shopping

So my sweet little nephew is here. There is a picture of him on my blog. Big brother is hanging out with me while mommy and daddy are at the hospital. Sadly, he was awake at 5:40 this morning. It's gonna be a long day. He is not usually up that early. Yesterday was his first day of preschool. He had a good time, but it was only for an hour. Now he is waiting for Tuesday to come so he can go back.

G' Morning Friends!

As some of you have heard, we received a phone call yesterday morning, telling us that my beloved FIL (he was truly my buddy, my friend, a second dad to me, and so much more) passed away. Though his health has deteriorated in the past couple of years, we were not anticipating this. He died of a sudden heart attack. Paramedics' attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

I will admit, I cried a bucket of tears yesterday - which my swollen red eyes can attest to.

We live in Illinois. He lived in Virginia, but most of his life was spent in Kentucky, where the funeral will be. Our son who lives in Wisconsin will drive here today. Tomorrow, we will travel to Kentucky. Our daughter who lives in Mississippi will meet us in Kentucky. The visitation is Sunday; the funeral on Monday. We will travel home on Tuesday. I'm not sure if our son will leave here on Wednesday or if he will stay a bit longer.

My MIL, who is in the final stages of Alzheimer's, will not grieve the loss of her husband of 57 years. Her disease has already taken his memory away from her.

My husband, who is a "twin" to his dad, albeit over 20 years younger - they look alike, think alike, laugh alike, talk alike - will be preaching the funeral. I plan to take along a HUGE box of Kleenex to be able to wipe my tears.

I covet your thoughts/prayers for us during this time!

Also, I will not be posting a PSA again until Wednesday at the earliest.

(((Hugs!!)))
