MINDING my own business, washing my dinner dishes looking
out my window in the backyard. See that green barrel
in the corner? Some kid was looking into the
window of that garage. He had already looked into
mine. He was carrying a basketball. He proceeded
to throw the ball over the fence and then stepped
up on the barrel and hopped over the fence.
Started looking into other windows. MY CUE to
call the neighbors.
I took his picture but he was moving fast.  Center of
the picture, by the blue tarp.
We have had plenty of breaking
and enterings around here and so every time we see something
we take action. The neighbor went out but the kid had
gone. I described what he was wearing and the neighbor
went in his car and searched about a block away
There was the kid looking into cars. He called the
college security and they called cops. He had a history of
doing this and so off they took him!!  VICTORY for
Neighborhood watch.!!!  I will wonder now if the
basketball he was carrying was stolen though. LOL
That was our excitement for Friday. Smile
Mom still is really not improved like I thought  she would be
with 3 days of meds. I expected better I guess. Will be calling
the Dr. office on Monday anyway to see what we can do. Maybe
they can arrange to get her in sooner or change the pills.
I know some anitbiotics work different than others do.
We will see. Disappointed
Not much more from here so……….
