Yesterday I left my purse in the cart at Walmart when I loaded my groceries. I did not miss it until my next stop. I went back to Walmart and all the carts where I had left mine were gone. I went inside to the information desk and asked if they had seen it. Bryn, who brings in the carts, had found it and brought it in to the desk. I was very relieved. I had envisioned spending the rest of the day canceling credit cards, etc. Thank you, Bryn.
Police blotter and North Star Apartments
I'm a resident of North Star Apartments, the high-rise, and I'm wondering why any time the police are called here, it's never in the police blotter. There's been several incidents since I've lived here eight years that several things have happened where the police were here and nothing ever makes the police blotter. Do they pick and choose what they want to put in there? I'd like some answers on that. How about printing something about it?
Thanks for Kindness for Kids ride
A big thanks to Dave, Westgate Mall and everyone who donated time, food and materials to the Kindness for Kids ride. Thanks to the horse-drawn wagon with music and lights. Hopefully this was a huge success and will be annual family Christmas get-together. Thanks everyone who participated.
Snow equals morons
What is it about snow that makes people just plain stupid? I love the people who go out at 6 a.m. and start their snow tractor and snow blower just to sit in their house the rest of the day. Don't mind the fact that you're waking up your neighbors. I can't wait until June when I start mowing my lawn at 6 a.m. and see how many people come running out and yelling, "Hey, you're waking me up!" Morons.
