It’s just #3 or 4 down the list of Absolutely Must To-Do’s. Thanks for your patience…

Excitement in da hood!

Excitement in da hood! Cops have blocked off all the streets leading into my neighborhood, looking for a burglary suspect on the loose! This po-po is stationed at the entrance to our subdivision right across the street from my front door.
