decided to cruise down to Westchester Lagoon and take a walk near the water. the cross country ski team from West High it looked like was taking a skating day. it did snow yesterday/last night but only a smidgee. great to see that the lack of snow hasn't kept their spirits down. everyone looked to be having a great time out there.
there was another musher that killed himself recently after his dogs were removed for neglect. those dogs are at animal control fattening up. his friends are hoping they will find a home together...but that is like 12 dogs so might not be a realistic hope.
they are still trying to find the horrible person who slit a pit bulls neck and hung the dog from a tree. someone like this needs to be found and removed from society....not normal behaviour, very alarming and frightening that they have yet to figure out who was responsible.
that is the dog news.
we need police officers and so we need them to be able to defend themselves. don't give them a reason to shoot at you. it's sad that this young man is dead, it's sad that he chose to fight and flight instead of obeying the requests of an officer. it's sad that people are looting and burning their own neighborhoods and it's sad that his family is still egging on an already explosive situation instead of handling it in a way that prevents others from getting harmed and businesses from being looted and burned.
turkey and all the fixings with friends and/or family. may everyone be safe and happy and may nobody be alone and hungry.
the earth and the cosmos and the trillion amazing and beautiful things that exist therein.
2 sweet kittens and 2 wonderful pups who keep me company and make me laugh.
