Sometimes events occur which put things in our lives in perspective.
DD was HIGHLY annoyed with us tonight because we would not allow her to eat a bowl of ice cream upstairs in her bedroom. She is also not allowed to eat in the family room, but CAN eat two feet away from her usual post in the F.R., at the table in the breakfast nook with full view of the TV.
She was going back and forth with her dad when the 10 o'clock news came on. Lead story...
28 yo teacher killed in a head on collision after leaving school here in Georgia driving to New Orleans for his Bachelor Party. The wedding was to have been July 4. He and fiance were to have closed on their new home this Tuesday.
Following story...An elderly couple were badly beaten in a home invasion two days ago. The woman, 68 yo is in intensive care and so badly pistol whipped her face is unrecognizable to her family. Three men who stole $117 and beat the couple just for the heck of it. The husband was released from the hospital today and is heartbroken that he was not able to protect his wife.
