Well, I'm back from my little trip with Nina. And, yes, I never dropped an ounce from all the walking, but I did develop "skankles" again. You know, skinny ankles.
We had a great time, saw two wonderful shows, and again, got our eyes opened to the "big city" kind of people wearing the most outrageous clothes. It was terribly hot and dry, but we mostly rode the monorail. The walking and sightseeing that we did was manageable. Anyhoo, we had fun. I was determined to take lots of pictures this time, but the batteries and back-up batteries didn't work in my camera, so Nina took some on her phone. Unfortunately, I can't seem to download them on my computer, so I only have a few to post.
BREAKING NEWS!!! Here's a bit of information that I am absolutely furious about.
My 13-year old granddaughter got mugged on the way home from her second day of school this year.
A girl and three boys stole her phone and her wallet. She was really upset that they got her library card, since she uses it all the time. I don't think she realized that we can replace it. Anyway, the police were called and they gave her a ride home. Those kids WILL be dealt with.
I just happened to stop at her house right after she got home. I had noticed that a police car was leaving their street as I was pulling up, but didn't think much about it. I never dreamed that it had anything to do with my girls.
Poor kid was absolutely frantic and looked like she was in shock. She couldn't believe that it had happened. What's really stupid about those kids' actions is the fact that they go to the same school as she does and she knows the girl. She doesn't know the boys personally but she has seen them at her not-so-huge school. DUH!
From now on, her big sister will be picking her up after school. Thank goodness!!
And how was YOUR day?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
