A good day at my home the POLICE LOG HAS ARRIVED. 1st) I am collecting my straws 2) the little girl is so cute. 3) and most important to me. I AM A PROWED PEDESTRIAN. I press the button when I wist to cross the street. I have lost count of the drivers who beckon me to cross and shake my head no and point to the red hand facing me. One guy rolled down his window and promised he wouldn't hit me. Lucky for me he got the green light because I think he was going to push me across the street. OH! I almost forgot the accident on hopping brook. I could see in the picture he didn't even brake no skid marks. I am still sending good wishes and thoughts his way. Sorry to be so chatty today.
