It Was A Day To Remember ...

You know, on some days it's better just to have stayed in bed ...

On Friday, after my daytime runs here in Happy Valley (and dealing with both a slight bronchial infection and a bum knee), I made my way down one of our scenic streets ... just to be turned back by the bevy of police cars and foot patrols! Apparently, they were looking for someone around the intersecting blocks ... and, judging by their looks, I don't think it was for Girl Scout Cookies™!

So, since I wasn't driving, I took one of our sleek, kinda-new city buses (well, I didn't "take" it, actually. We had a driver ...) back to the Mouse House when everyone on-board saw a house suddenly flame up! I mean, there was just a little smoke about two blocks from the structure -- but, by the time we were in front of it, the place just fired up like a furnace! Smoke billowed out like mad, and was so thick you could've cut it with the proverbial knife (always the best to carry ... doesn't hurt anyone ...).
Yep ... fire trucks, ambulances, police cruisers, unmarked units -- the street was covered with them all within just minutes of the blaze!
Fortunately, no one was home during the fire ... but, sadly, one of their family pets didn't make it out of the inferno.

By the time I got off the bus (about three blocks from the House), a guy came out of the pizza place nearby and yelled "You better get home quick. Somebody robbed the bank up the street and he's still out here somewhere!"
Ahhhh, just what I wanted to hear ... an upbeat greeting from a neighbour at the end of a lonnnng day ... (PS As of this writing, he still hasn't been caught!)

On the way down the alley (looking over my back and checking the sides of nearby houses [I learned to do that during my police training in the Army]), I couldn't help chuckling a bit.
I remembered what Uncle Lloyd told me in one of our many emails: "Live life to the fullest, because if you don't it will catch up with you anyway. And it beats dying."
And, Mousers, today I got a bellyful of it ...

Stay tuned ...
